Time to Travel: Now
The time to travel is now.
What are you waiting for?
Ah, Miss Scarlet! The Queen of putting things off ….
There is always time to think about tomorrow…seek our dreams tomorrow…connect with our family tomorrow. We have excuses on why tomorrow would be better. Too much work, too much kid stuff keeping you running here there and yon (soccer/swimming/baseball), or you want to be fit enough, skinny enough or have a certain amount of money in the bank; your dreams can wait, right?
But, we aren’t promised tomorrow.
A friend’s husband was diagnosed with cancer of the vocal cords a year ago. After radiation, the cancer went into his larynx. After radiation and chemo the cancer went into his esophagus. Doctors gave him one year to live and now, 2 months later he is in hospice care. I bet you know someone who’s life was cut to short. Sadly, we all do. The circle of life includes the end of it. Time waits for no man and it won’t wait for you either.
Time to Travel: Why the Time is Now
Travel Time is Now: No regrets
At the end of life, patients in hospice care often have true clarity of thought. Looking back over their lives they speak of happiness and regrets. A common regret is wishing they had lived a life true to themselves. Are you holding back? What would your TRUE self like to do? Think about how you can capture that feeling in the life you have now.
Travel Time is Now: Bond with friends and family
Feeling connected is important. Spending time together, talking, and making shared experiences to look back on and laugh about are truly some of life’s joys. Doing things together helps forge a tight bond, one that can stand the test of time.
Travel Time is Now: YOLO (You Only Live Once)
While a lot of photos that use the hashtag YOLO are of people doing really stupid things, lol, the concept is really a good one. You really do only have one life and making it a great one is an excellent choice. Don’t forget the kids are watching you at every turn. Teach them it is important to plan for enjoying your life!
Enjoy the wonder of today. Soak it up. Seize the day! Make it the best journey ever!
Make your dreams happen TODAY! If traveling is part of your dream – part of the life you want to live, then you have come to the right place!
