365 Chances

Isn’t it funny how we think of starting over only at the end of a year? How we think about new beginnings, new “you’s”, new chances, new whatever’s always at the end or maybe at the beginning of the year?

And yet we have those opportunities at any given point. We can start over now, then or whenever. The decision is up to us. We always have that “special kind of moment”, that “now or never”, that “it’s now or never” or “once in a lifetime”. We just need to see it, embrace it and run with it. Even if it’s scary… after all we are in charge. We write our book of life. We choose where a chapter begins or ends….

  1. Back when I was a teenager in Junior High (seventh through ninth grade), we took a field trip to see The King and I (matinee of course) in San Francisco. One of the lines of that play that always stuck with me was from the King who said during a discussion with Anne, “Yes, now. Now is always the best time.” I think that’s about the time I started exploring the whole “live in the Now” lifestyle though I’d never been one to live in the past. But yeah, Now is the only time you have.
