It has been my dream for a long time now to move my painting studio into my retreat but I was afraid and wondered if I could justify it to myself and my husband. When I saw this little picture online it really hit me – what am I waiting for? Why am I not just going for it? I do not want to be confined in a box, not now, not ever! Of course the only person getting in my way was Me! When I shared my dream with my husband, he immediately said “Why not”. It is truly wonderful to have such a supportive partner.
I was so moved by this article written by a nurse about the most common regrets that people experience on their deathbed and thought it was so important to pass it on so that we the living could learn from the dying how to live our lives now.
Be who you are and not what others want or expect you to be. Do what you love. If you have dreams to sing, dance, paint, write poetry or learn to fly a plane, write a novel – whatever it is – do not put those dreams on hold – start acting on your dreams today.
