I thought of the title for this article when I was out walking in the countryside. So many people wait until everything is perfect to enjoy life and feel happy.
Life isn't like that.
The summer in the UK this year is pretty much non-existent. I woke up again this morning to grey clouds, wind and lots of rain. Feel edgy as I needed exercise but not very motivated to go outside due to the cold and wet weather.
So with a heavy heart I put on my water proofs and decided to go for a walk - living in Somerset I have plenty of fields and country side around me. So pleased I did as it was beautiful, despite the rain. Flowers were blooming, the smell of wild garlic was abundant in the air and the sound of the rain against the tree branches was so very relaxing.
If I had waited for the prefect conditions to venture out for a walk I would have missed this beautiful experience.
This got me thinking about opportunities people miss as they are waiting for the perfect conditions.
As a hypnotherapist in London I see so many people waiting for their perfect conditions to really live life. Waiting for the perfect relationship, waiting until they are financially secure, waiting for this or that to be sorted. I will be happy when my next promotion comes in, or when my next holiday is due. Many feel stressed and anxious.
Life is about right now, with all that it entails. Start each day embracing it regardless what is happening and see it where it takes you.
There is a quote I like and it goes something like "I'm not perfect but I am perfectly flawed" and we can transfer that to life "My life isn't perfect but it's perfectly flawed".
