If not now then when? We so often put things off that could be done today, not really living in the 'now' or realising that time and life don't always go to plan. We put off taking risks by telling ourselves we'll do it when we feel more settled in a few months, we'll take that leap of faith when we get X out of our system, or we'll do it when the weather is better.
People say "we only live once", "life is short, take chances"... but translating this into everyday life isn't always so easy. When we wait for the 'perfect' moment to do things we can miss out on a wonderful experience. Timing will never be 'right' or 'perfect' and if something scares us we will ALWAYS find a reason to put it off due to timing.
We seem to think we have an unlimited amount of time on this planet to do the things we love and that putting things off is for the best, but we can miss out on amazing opportunities, life moments and connections if we are too scared or complacent to make a change.
The more I get into my Yoga Teacher Training the more this rings true. I could have put of training for years due to fear of not knowing if I was at the right level to train (answer: if you're truly passionate about yoga then you are!) and worrying about balancing work with training. The fact is, even though I was scared to take the jump to train, I just had to go for it - yes, timings will always be hard if you're studying part-time while maintains a full-time job, but you'll make it work. I'm only 10 days into my training but it's one of the best decisions I've ever made, on so many levels. It's opened my mind to new ideas and it is so refreshing to be learning again. On a personal level it's given me so much food for thought, a fresh perspective on life and pushed me beyond what is comfortable. That area outside your comfort zone is where you truly grow.
