“For a long time it seemed to me that real life was about to begin, but there was always some obstacle in the way. Something had to be got through first, some unfinished business; time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”
Think about the things that you feel matter most in your life
Think about the people you care about most, the goals dearest to you – the dreams that you perhaps have kept deep inside, some perhaps waiting for “someday” when you will have more time to focus on them.
…When obligations pass, when you get through whatever “thing” is going on right now.
However, I want to challenge you to think very hard about whether you really are “temporarily” putting some of those things on hold – or if these current obligations, these current “distractions” are actually becoming your life… because I have been there in my life myself.
