Tomorrow Never Comes – Start Living for Today

Tomorrow never comes; once tomorrow gets here it’s today. Waiting for tomorrow to do what you should have started long ago is only going to keep you from ever succeeding.

It’s so easy to get into the habit of saying “Wait” or “I’ll do that later” instead of taking up the mantel of responsibility and just getting on with living life fully today. This isn’t saying you have to ignore the facts:

  • Yes, the timing must be right to pursue your dreams.
  • Yes, you have to get the right obligations out of the way, like taking care of family, children, elderly parents, if that’s what you are supposed to do.
  • Yes, you may have to finish the fight on the hard challenge that have come your way.

But once those have gone and you know the time is now, you have to get started on living the true purpose of your life.

  • Do you ever wonder why certain people have a yearning in the heart to do something big?
  • Do you think this is a universal yearning or do you think some people are content to be where they are in life?

It seems that for some the yearning is stronger or more real than others. I believe everyone is born with a purpose to fulfill in life that will leave the world a better place as a result. That task may be small or only touch one single life. But touching that life will cause a ripple effect that will reach out to places unknown.

I also believe that some people refuse to do what is on their heart. Knowing that there is a great thing to do, they refuse to answer that life calling and ignore it until life is over for them.

  • You know in your heart that you are supposed to be doing more.
  • You know you are supposed to be doing greater things.

I believe a life purpose is set in the heart of every person at birth. When you refuse to heed the persistence of that life calling, you live a life unfulfilled.

  • Are you denying the call of your life purpose?
  • Are you letting the past, or your fears, or unforgiveness, or confusion keep you from identifying what is great about you so you can start sharing it with the world?

I’ve been in settings where the most unlikely person got up and made a presentation that changed the direction of everyone in the room. Through very simple words or a brief exercise or by sharing a piece of art or playing a simple arpeggio, lives were changed.

It’s Time to Be Confident

At some point in life, a woman has to step into the fullness of her confidence.  I realized this at an early age and somewhere along the way, lost site of that bold confidence that took me through my youth. 

I traveled freely as a young woman.  There was little that could stop me.  A Peace Corps Volunteer, I traveled the African Nation of my assignment with gusto experiencing all of the new sites, sounds, tastes, and smells that location had to offer.  I learned French in order to be a part of the people where needed.  English, fortunately, was the major language in my location.

I even rode a motorcycle; a Suzuki road bike.  It took me over rough terrain but faced every obstacles I gave it.  I ate foods that make people shudder when I mention them, like elephant and monkey. But that was a part of the life there, a part of the adventure of learning how other people survive.

Where is that confidence that let me be so bold?  Somehow it got taken away by the burdens of new responsiblities.  Of seeing my parents die, or having to face money issues, of facing the truth of our limited life spans. 

But these are reasons to be even more brave.  Women in business, women in the middle of parents and children, women doing incredible things you’d never imagine when young.  These are reasons to start living with gusto, pushing past fears and doing what is known to be a life purpose.  This is the time for Confidence.  This is the years of living Confidently.
