“I’ll get around to it.” “Not just yet.” “The timing isn’t quite right.”
It’s true, there’s a time for everything. But there’s no such thing as the PERFECT time. It doesn’t exist. The older I get, the more I believe that the “perfect” time for something is when an opportunity presents itself. It may not return.
In my opinion, it all comes back to that dreaded f-word. No, not that one. Fear. The only reason opportunities slip away and never revisit is because we let them. I guess this is logical reasoning if you plan on living into your mid-200s. Good luck with that, by the way.
As for me, I could be out of here tomorrow. So could you. So could Paris Hilton (Don’t cheer…that’s just mean). Although I’ve written and published several books, I never did finish one I began over a decade-and-a-half ago. I was too afraid. Yep, that’s the reason. And since I don’t bathe in the fountain of youth, I guess my birthdays are numbered.
Do or die, I will finally finish this current manuscript (THE SEVENTH RITUAL) by the end of summer, because it’s time has come. So has mine…to be unafraid. I highly recommend the same to you, you won’t regret it. Take your turn…and goooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
