It’s not the years in your life, but the life in your years

How many things have you wished you did but never tried? How many moments did you stand on the edge of opportunity, only to step back away from the challenge? I know there are certain times in my life I wish I had been bolder. I wish I had the courage to do the things I wanted, regardless of what other people think.

So as I get older I realize what really is important is to do what your heart tells you. Do the things which you feel will make you happy. If they don’t fulfill you then you have lost nothing, in fact you have gained the knowledge and experience of something you don’t need to keep wondering if you would enjoy doing.

As you get older the years seem to get shorter, the days and months just become a blur. So it is vitally important that you do not float through life, just being carried along by responsibility, commitments and the day-to-day things in life we all have to do. As worthy as all of these are, and as difficult it is to even think of fitting in something else into your schedule, for you and for you alone, you must try the things in life you want to try. You may surprise yourself with what you really find in life that you love. Take a leap of faith today, good luck.

  1. Hi Alan!
    Here from bended spoons . . .and I really appreciate your gentle urging for us to go for it. πŸ™‚ It is hard to fit in something for oneself with all there is to do. But worth it to try, right?
    I love the pictures. Are they to inspire us or just to share? What a cool and unique addition. πŸ™‚


    1. Hi Debbie, Thank you for your kind words. The pictures are just there to inspire, things I find on my daily browse that i like and hope that will also light the spark of imagination in others the way they do me. I will be passing by your blog, thanks again, take care Alan.


  2. What a great post! It is absolutely true that we must go for the brass ring! I never would have believed that I would write two YA novels in the past two years and now working on the final one at 11 days short of 64! lol πŸ™‚ I’m the crazy lady swinging as high as I can go on the park swing…why should I let my age deny me of the uber feeling of flying! πŸ™‚ I’m so glad you are back posting…you were truly missed! πŸ™‚ Have a beautiful day/night! πŸ™‚ My fav pix are: 2nd in 1st, 1st in 2nd, 1st in 3rd and 1st in 6th. πŸ™‚


    1. Thank you so much! It’s always inspiring to read your comments and especially to visit your blog. Congrats on the two! Good luck with number three. Any news on an agent?
