If Not Now, Then When??

It feels like such a different day. As if the world will stop just because I want it to. The boss won't be an ass  the coffee will taste better, and the people won't drain me. But the truth of the matter is, that feeling doesn't last.
The coffee is burnt and old, like something I'd expect to get at an all night truck stop, and immediately I feel like I'm in the movie Office Space.  Corporate Accounts Payable, Nina Speaking; Just a moment.

During my break I catch up on a few blogs. Jack over at the Jackb makes me think about life. I enjoy reading posts that speak to me. That make me think. At the same time I hate them for that very same reason. They make me think. I don't realize today is already Wednesday. Its an ordinary day. Nothing different than the day before. Or the day before that. Jacks' blog makes me realize this. He talks about what matters, or what matters now. Again, it makes me think. What matters to me? Right now. At this time in my life. I take away a thought: If not now then when?
Maybe it's silly, but really. If not now then when? When do we stop dreaming and start doing? What are we waiting for? What am I waiting for? The highlight of my day is deciding what candy bar to buy from the machine. After humming the jingle I decide on Almond Joy. Almond Joy's got nuts, Mounds don't. The jingle helps me remember.

Just a thought. If not now, then when?


Just Write


  1. Oh fine. Make me THINK today. Actually a kick in the pants I truly need. I also just read this today: If you want something you've never had, you have to do something you've never done. I've seen it many times and it almost always resonates with me. Everything making me think... I suppose that's a good thing, right?

    1. Sorry I made you think today :) I like if you've want something you've never had you have to do something you've never done. Think I'll use that one sometime.


  2. Absolutely needed this today. I am getting this message over and over and over again. I best take heed or the next time I see it it's goin to be because it was taped to a rock that smacked me in the face!

  3. I tweeted a link to your post. Will you remind me of your twitter handle?

  4. I love the fact that othet people out there have this same "feeling".

    Thank you

  5. I keep saying that I am going to stop thinking and start living but I haven't managed to find the perfect balance yet. But I am trying.
