Face it: No matter what we do, wrinkles happen. Physical…and otherwise. We can set schedules, timetables, calendars and plan…but try as we might, life will unfold with wrinkles. Take exercising and making healthier food choices: These are two smart things to do. But neither stops wrinkles…or getting hit by a bus if we don’t look both ways!
So about life-plan wrinkles: They happen to us all. Yet, our life force is fed by pushing forward, accepting the inevitability of wrinkles despite our insecurities about facing them.
Fears of failing can be as just as immobilizing as fears of succeeding. Yet, the more we opt to accept that there are no guarantees of failure or success—no matter what choices we make— the easier action becomes because we’ve accepted the inevitability of wrinkles that accompany a life fully-lived.
Choosing to do the things that push our lives forward for the long haul (which is something we all want…a long haul!) is always better than doing nothing to fulfill our desires. Through action, while we will make errors and certainly there will be wrinkles—it’s a bigger mistake to allow our limited lifetime to pass, waiting for a cosmic sign that guarantees some perceived “success.”
Life is about living so that we reach our personal definitions of “the fullest life” at every age. Go for the gusto. There’s no shame in taking a risk…or failing. Don’t worry about what others may say as they try to discourage you. Don’t wait. Find the time to do whatever is bubbling up in side of you, seeking expression.
Waiting can become a habit: Break it! Life is happening now. Embrace it wrinkles and all.
