One Day or Day One – You Decide!


One Day or Day One - You Decide! | Tyranny of Pink

Life is so very short.

A cliché but it’s true. If we’re really lucky we get to live a hundred years but the reality is that hardly anyone gets to live till then. Instead we live to maybe 85 if we live in place with decent health care…

We hardly have any time on earth.

Think about all the things you want to achieve.

Think about all the places you want to go.

Think about all the things you want to go do and go see.

Think about how much there is to see in this beautiful world.

Think of how much you would regret not doing.

I don’t know why but I woke up this morning with the strong sense of one day or day one in my mind.

I woke up thinking, I could sit around in my pj’s all day today – sure – no one would bat an eyelid because I’ve got nowhere to be, nothing set in stone. Working from home means that I could sit around all day with unbrushed hair and no one would be any wiser and that’s cool.

Then I thought about all the things I need to do. All the things I need to get done because EVENTUALLY we will be leaving and there’s still a million things I need to get done. 

Still a million things I need to learn.

So instead of lying around in my pj’s, I made a big fat to-do list and I scheduled times and days to get these things done.

I’m excited about the week ahead. I’m looking forward to the months ahead. 

Because we can sit around wondering when is life going to happen for me, and we can blame the universe and all the crap that happens day in and day out – OR – we can get up and get shit done.

One Day or DAY ONE

You Decide!

    A to do list is the perfect way to persevere and get *hit done. We are heading for April and this year is already flying by. Tomorrow is not guaranteed so there is no time like the present to live. ?
