There Will Never Be A Perfect Time

We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years to get a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive in.
— Thich Nhat Hanh

We all have daydreams about what we want to do, how we’d rather be spending our time, or we imagine our perfect life to look like — though we rarely turn those dreams into a reality. We are always waiting for the next thing to happen, and then we say we’ll do it. Maybe we’re waiting until we save up X amount of money, maybe we’re waiting until we put our two years in our new job, whatever the reason is, we seem to always be waiting.

But, here’s the thing, there is always another benchmark to reach and there is never a perfect time to create your happiest, most fulfilling life. In order to have your Zen AF life, you must make some changes.

  1. Decide What You Want – Spend some time meditating, journaling, and really getting to understand yourself. Once you know yourself well enough, you will know exactly what you want. Once you know what you want it becomes easier to create your Zen AF life.

  2. Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone – In order to create a life you love, you must do something you have never done before. You must get out of your comfort zone, break your routine, step into the unknown and then see what happen.

  3. Just Do It – Thank you Nike for giving us this simple yet brilliant message. Sometimes you really have no other option except to make it happen. Once you fully commit, you must do everything in your power to create your Zen AF life. There will never be a perfect time and things will always get in the way. But when you are committed and dedicated you will find a way to make it work, no matter how difficult.

So take what you have, from where you are and turn it into your happiest, most meaningful + fulfilling life.
