I often catch myself putting life on hold while I sit and wait for the perfect moment to begin. I waste lots of little snippets of time because, by themselves, they don’t feel substantial enough to get anything done. I say I’m too tired. I say I’m too busy. I’ll get so much done later…when I have time.
But time doesn’t come later. All the time we have is the time we have right now. So I’m learning to begin in the small moments in between the hustle and bustle of life. I read, even if there’s only time for a page or two. I write, even if I only get a few words down.
There is no perfect time to begin. And I’m starting to think life might not ever really slow down either. So I’m beginning in the middle, working with the time I have, and getting more done in all those small moments than I ever will while waiting for perfection.

So very true..time is precious and so much is wasted in our procrastination. “Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.” Eph. 5:15-16
sort of what I was thinking about earlier, but said much more profoundly. thank you! Love your posts.
