Waking up at 7am and dreading the sound of the alarm, because I knew I'd spend an hour going to work that I don't even like. It's something I would probably leave in a year or two. It's temporary, before I can actually start doing something meaningful and enjoy my life. Right?
For 3 years I procrastinated and changed nothing. I could spend an evening reading a self-help book, something like Robin Sharma or watched Oprah Sunday Soul Sessions and got so inspired to change everything - learn how to dance or finally go to Spain.But a few days later LIFE GOT IN THE WAY. And I always has enough excuses to keep my beautiful little ass in the comfort zone, where I thought it belonged.
- Oh, no, I didn't write the article I meant to send to National Geographic...Well, you know, work - I had so little time!
-No, I didn't go to volunteer at the shelter. Went to a bar with my buddies last night and slept till noon, you know?
- A marathon? Sure, I still want to! But it's so hard to find the time for gym...How many times I went? Well, I didn't go this month. Maybe I'll start in September.
Deep inside, I knew I could craft the live I want. Thoughts an actions should come hand in hand and I thought I would start acting. Some other day. Not now.
Procrastination was killing me and I wasn't even brave enough admit that I was lying to myself. I sometimes got jealous of the girls and guys, who actually did something nice - who went to other places and saw the world. Who helped underprivileged children learn how to read. I secretly envied people, who did things and actually felt like they were living the life and not existing.
I realised that something's had to shange or I would wake up when I'm 80 and have no time or energy to try all the things I actually want!
If you had some life-changing experience that help you realize, you're a mortal - I envy you. Because most people value their time, when it's too late!
