July 3--Carpe Diem

If you wait for the perfect moment when all is safe and assured, it may never arrive. Mountains will not be climbed, races won, or lasting happiness achieved.
--Maurice Chevalier

    I'm not sure we could even identify that "perfect moment" even if we did want to wait for it. There are no guarantees here except for death and taxes, and I would add, that everything has a lifespan. Opportunities are infinite, but it seems that each one only lasts for a little while. "Just do it." Putting off happiness until some future milestone happens is a waste of a perfectly good life.
    We have spent considerable time during the pandemic trying to maintain "all is safe and assured." Certainly we created new ways to approach that such as curbside pickup. Yet over 600,000 people have died in the USA alone. Even though one may have remained Covid-free, it was not good for our mental health to isolate for "the perfect moment." We are designed to go for it. That is why we came here. 
    Enjoying today,

someone who knows me well 😉😉
