When the Time is right

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

I was replying to a team mail today about keeping record of our weight and general life style plan I replied I had mine on various bits of paper.
One Day I will get around to putting it all together. There are 2 phrases there I and others use a lot, ONE day. When is that One Day going to come along? Will tomorrow be any different to today? Next week maybe? Next Year? Sometime? never?
Getting round to it" there is another common phrase. Just what do I have to go round something to get to what I want to do? Is it an unmovable object?
I have begged my son to give up smoking. He answers "I will when the right time will be to stop, its not yet.! Will it be when he has lung cancer??
I have a friend who is going to start to lose weight...one day!
I am going to phone some one, when I have time
These phrases are used so much and become meaningless. General putting off something we don't want to think of.
I do intend to find that "One Day" very soon. Not the same day for doing all the things I am putting off, but can make a start now to"getting round" to finding"One Day" and making sure "The Time is Right"

    I love your blog, it is so true!!!
I have a favorite quote that kinda goes along with this. For those people you think about calling:

Three questions for if you found out you only had 24 hours to live:
1-Who whould you call? 2-What would you say? 3-Why are you waiting?

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    I am guilty of putting off projects,or whateveor calling people & procrastinating as I can't find where to begin things sometime. It's a human trait of putting things off maybe it's because we're in a comfort zone and don't want to move forward, the reasons must be able to fill books.

  Today is the only day we have that we can do something with and about.

Yesterday is gone forever and tomorrow is not even here yet......so that leaves today.....so....let's go since this IS THE ONE DAY i have been waithig for.

    Maybe if someone in the house makes a change, others will notice and follow the example. A year ago this May the 8th, I quit smoking and gave up drinking soda. I am helping my health and my "purse"!. Your blog is a great reminder. Hope it gets through to others! emoticon

    Some others are :
when I have time,
After I finish _____
When I feel like it

When I am not wanting to do something at a particular reason and have a " justification " I ask myself if it is a reason for not doing it or an excuse. There is a big difference. Sometimes there is a reason but a lot of the time it is just an excuse.

    Great blog! Yes, it always seems like, " I'll start tomorrow" or "I'll do better the next time." My new motto created by a Spark buddy is...."Stop Trying and Start Doing." So far, it's working. Good luck as you find the right moment to do what's right for you.....

    Putting things off, unfortunately, is also true of me and many people. I keep thinking I'm going to lose this weight WHEN the time is right. I do try but not nearly hard enough as my scale seems stuck-so am I. Thank you for the reminder that today is what we have as none of us can predict the future.

Hugs,

Jill

    To often we use the "one day" line and tuth is the "one day" most often doesn't come.We need to realize "one Day" is now and we need to grasp hold of it and enjoy the ride. have a terrific day!

    What a great Blog. I have fallen into the "one of these days" rut and it weighs on me. It's time to make "one of these days" today.

Thanks Irene,

Lew
