Now is the time
I want to use this time to heal and to do all the work on myself (and on my apartment) that I usually find excuses for not doing. Too busy, too tired, too something. I am still quite busy at work, but without the commute and the socializing, I still have more time on my hands.
How I use this time is my choice. How I use this huge challenge is my choice. And I have decided to do my best to use it wisely. I cannot find excuses now, I cannot “escape” anywhere, be it work or a dinner with a friend. Now is the time to sort out all the papers I tend to accumulate and get rid of what I don’t need, be it old doctors’ notes or expired coupons. Now is the time to deepen my spiritual journey and trying to translate into actions all the beautiful teachings I have been reading about in the last 20 years.
Now is the time to look at myself in honesty and improve what needs to be improved without hiding behind a finger (as we say in my language). Now is the time to exercise every day, for my physical and mental well-being. Now is the time to “beautify” my soul, to polish it, and come out of this stronger, lighter, wiser. Now is the time.
