The Perfect Moment Is Now

Posted by in Inspire 09 Feb 2015

I was BUSY chasing the corporate dream – I wanted to be that big-time corporate trainer consultant that everyone will be talking about.

But I found myself exhausted from the many roles that I juggled. As I grew older, my parents grew older; they slowed down and so did I. I found myself running through the days trying to be that superwoman – meet clients, conduct classes, run a parent for medical appointments, shuttling between hospital and home when Dad was ill, keep the home tidy, prepare that healthy meal (and beat myself up when I couldn’t), learning a new skill to enhance my career, fighting to have a good marriage, catch up with my good old friends for a quick coffee or chat, exercise to stay healthy (and beat myself up when I couldn’t).

Breathe, Rachpal! “Your homework is just to STOP and BREATHE” was all my therapist would say!!

Two cancer scares in six months shattered me.

Then in 2012, my father passed away in April and it immediately followed with 2 possible cancer diagnoses over a six-month period. Two cancer scares in six months shattered me.

Only then I STOPPED! PAUSED! And BREATHED!

 

I now have a renewed belief. That every day that I am alive, is a special day.

So I slowed down. I walked slower. I stopped to admire the beauty around me. I ate slower. I savoured the taste. I drank wine when I felt like it. I wore that lovely dress when I felt like it. I met with my friends and enjoyed a good laugh. I no longer waited for “that perfect occasion”.

I now have a renewed belief. That every day that I am alive, is a special day.

Every day that YOU are alive is a SPECIAL DAY.
Why wait for that perfect day to…
Wear that lovely dress?
Eat from that expensive dining set?
Take a walk along the beach?
Open that bottle of wine?

Girlfriend, TODAY IS THAT PERFECT DAY to ….Simply Live!
