PSA | Don't wait...

A friend of mine passed away at the weekend; I'm not going into details or anything but one thing came out of it that bears repeating, even though we all know it, really.

If there's something you thought you'd try, be it writing or photography or hiking the Munros or learning to draw etc. - don't wait. Don't wait until you 'have the time'. Don't wait until you retire, or the kids start university. If you can find 15 minutes spare in a day then take a photograph, watch a class on drawing online and then practice for 10-15 minutes each day, write a few paragraphs of a story or an article, submit the stories you shoved in a drawer, or go for a brisk walk and build up your stamina for that hike.
 
But don't wait, because time and life won't wait for you and sometimes - if you wait - it'll be too late.



Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero. - Horace

Thanks Jennifer. Funeral's today so we'll get to say goodbye, but still...
