It’s really not what you may think at first. I haven’t suddenly turned to writing adult topics. Rather, I’ve been thinking today, because of my relative’s health issues, how sometimes we put off doing things, for reasons.
Reasons such as “no time” “can’t afford it” “what would people think” “I can’t” and the old standby: “someday”.
Suppose “someday” never comes? Suppose that you miss out on creating a great memory, all because there wasn’t any time to do it? How about missing a trip somewhere, because there were other things to spend money on?
Well, my analogy is this:
Now do you see why I said “Drop That Top?” Yes, a convertible. I am well aware that not all of us own one nor even want one. But. I used to know someone who drove a convertible. There were friends who refused to ride with the top down.
“It’ll mess up my hair.” “I don’t like the wind.” “It’s too cold.”
Always an excuse.
And so a lot of my friends missed out on that wild and fun ride.
Don’t be like them. Don’t be afraid to Drop That Top. Find the time, the money, the energy and the will to go out and try something new, do something surprising or daring. Be yourself but don’t be afraid to stretch your limits.
And so, as I tend to my ill relative, remember, nothing lasts forever. Take chances. You won’t regret it.
