“The habit of always putting off an experience until you can afford it, or until the time is right, or until you know how to do it is one of the greatest burglars of joy. Be deliberate, but once you’ve made up your mind – jump in.” Charles R. Swindoll
Today’s thought is filled with encouragement. How many times have we continued to procrastinate when a decision needed to be made? Our intentions were in the right place, but we were waiting for the “right time.”
This can happen when beginning a family, i.e. getting married or having children. We also see it pop up in areas of career choices. Someone once said, “If you don’t love what you do, then do something else. Life is too short to not enjoy what you do each day.”
Our lives should be deliberate and intentional. Once we choose the direction we want to pursue, the area we are most passionate about, then jump in. When we do what we love the most, then we will notice how joy finds its way back into our lives.
