Never Really Living


I have often been saddened by people who come to me saying that they have spent years getting ready to do something. It might be to begin a healthy lifestyle, or learning to meditate, but instead of getting on and doing something, they are still busy getting themselves seated.

Often what they need is a gentle – or sometimes not so gentle! – push, and a reminder that even eagles sometimes need to be shoved out of the nest!

It reminds me of this:

“We are always getting ready to live but never living.”         

–Ralph Waldo Emerson (American Poet and Essayist, 1803-1882)
