A common idea that is clearly and unfortunately wrong is the idea that we will always have time to do things later. We put things off, expecting to come back to them eventually when there is time or when there is an opportunity. But that’s not always true. Sometimes, that moment never comes and never will.
Sometimes, people go to sleep and never wake up. But you are still here. You still make choices about your life.
How do you want your life to look? Do you want to feel regret for all the things you have never done? Do you want to look back on a series of monotonous days?
Do things you have never done before. Explore your opportunities and possibilities.
Sign up for a dance class. Take a ride on a horse. Go to another country by yourself. Do what catches your fancy, what seems fun or exciting, and especially do those things that you have never done before. Take chances, take risks.
Don’t leave them until you reach a certain milestone, until you are a certain age, until you are ready, until you have no other responsibilities. Instead, focus on what you can do with the things you already have.
For example, you can take dance classes for free. Often, all you need is the willingness to try and look for opportunities near you. If you have access to the Internet, there is no limit to the skills you can acquire or the chances you might get.
