Now Is the Right Moment!

I have been wanting to blog since a very long time but have been putting it of for someday in the near future. And that near future kept dwindling farther and farther away from my conscious thoughts. Perhaps the fear of putting myself out there makes the the concept of ‘Someday’ a brighter option. However, today I have decided to dive right into it because I have realised that someday will never materialise unless I grab this moment today.

We find ourselves perpetually playing the waiting game. Hoping that something or someone will deliver us from our suffering which is most often self-inflicted by our non-enterprising disposition. We are irresolute in terms of everything except for waiting for that opportune moment when everything shall magically fall in place, and until that happens the plot of our life will not develop.

We keep waiting for something or someone to kick-start our life. It could be an event, a fortunate circumstance, a special person or divine intervention that could activate our stagnant state. Ridiculous as it might seem, we are completely happy to wait, after all it saves us the trouble of facing our fears and trying to take that first fumbling step into independent action.

Time of course flows rapidly in contrast to the frustrating futility of our indolence, and because we have decided to stay in this vacuum, time flows right out of our grasp. We fail to benefit from its movement which could have led us to ascend in the journey of our life.

We tend to put forth endless excuses for not doing something and the vice of procrastination embeds deeper into our consciousness. That supposedly right time might never arrive and the opportunity to live our life fully will get lost forever. We forget that we have to bring that moment to life. We ought to take prompt action, make that tough decision, take that daring risk, and just jump on that dreamboat and sail off. Sometimes you have to grab that shy dream by the lapels and pull it centre stage.

WE HAVE TODAY! Tomorrow is a beautiful possibility, but this moment right now is PERFECT. It is just the time to unveil that dream and let it soak the radiant sunlight. It deserves the light of realisation. Give it a chance. Give yourself a chance!

It does not have to be a groundbreaking idea or a fantastically marvellous project. Something big, something small, something crazy, something droll……just get on with it. We can set it in motion today itself and that will be quite an achievement.

Perhaps you want to campaign for a cause, apply in a prestigious institution, write a book, discuss a business plan with a financier, get a makeover or maybe just learn to roller skate. Do it now. There is no better time for it. Make it happen, even divine intervention favours the diligent go getter.

The tendency to procrastinate takes away the strength of initiative and the lustre of spontaneity. Embrace your fear with hope, it could be a propelling factor; springing all senses to action and igniting the primitive survival instinct. We could either be out there testing our wings in the wide blue skies, or cooped up safe and unruffled in our comfy nesting. The choice to soar and strive, to dive deep and survive should be ours. We have to take that decision because NOW is that PERFECTLY RIGHT MOMENT!

    Wow!! Wonderful!!
    An amazing article just loved to go through it. Yeah, totally agree with your thoughts, procrastinating anything be it work or any venture never comes unless you dive into it at that moment itself. We just gotta jump in and face our fears and overcome them by leaps and bounds.
    Congratulations dear Sis on your first blog. Hats off to you!! You have finally done it!!

    Perfectly summed up with on what ails us. Procrastination results from our own conjured up non existent fears. The goal should be the motivation. The present holds the key.

    Great post, Shaheen.

    Congratulations, Shaheen.
    Until you value your self, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.
    If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you will never get it done.


  18. I agree with the fact that all we have is TODAY, and that tomorrow may never come. That will certainly happen someday for each of us. However, as long as we have this day, we should treasure and try to make the most of it.
    I can say that I lost many days thinking what to do, weighting all the possibilities there, fearing to take action. But I don’t regret them. Maybe for some actions there is a right time and all you can do is to wait for that time. Every moment of our life is precious, no matter how we spend it.

    It will always be up to us when the right moment will be and usually that’s now. I don’t believe in waiting for the perfect time because it won’t happen unless we take that one step forward to jumpstart the whole thing.

    lemony snicketts said that if we wait until we are ready, we will end up waiting forever. I know it is scary to start when things are not perfect because we will be fodder for criticism but then again Paulo Coelho said, that in order to be successful, one must have the courage to be hated.

  21. I feel like if you don’t do it today, then you are putting off something that can potentially be beautiful and every day that you put it off you lose something of it! This was well written and gorgeous, so you picked the right time to start. when I first started blogging I put it off for months until I finally was like, “I am doing this.”
