No Better Time Than Now

When it comes to making a change in your life that may seem daunting, scary, impossible, there is no “perfect” time. There will never be that ideal moment to leap into the unknown. I have learned going through recovery that whether I was ready or not, I had to do it. I had to let go, stop behaviors, listen to my heart, allow my body to get healthy, sacrifice who I was to become who I was meant to be. Life would not wait around for me forever. My body wouldn't hold out until I came to my senses. I had to stop over thinking and overanalyzing it all and just do it. Not everything has an answer and not everything can be explained. I cannot twiddle my thumbs and wait for everything to align, to suddenly have all the answers I need appear in the back of the book of life. My mind was going to fight me and there would be more moments of endless thoughts to come, but I could not use that as an excuse to retreat to the world with familiarity that only brought pain and limited my dreams. The sooner I fought, the quicker those moments would be a thing of the past, the faster I would become a part of a more beautiful life. I encourage you to take the leap today. Do not wait until you have the courage or everything is perfect. Just move forward, and embrace what can be.
