There Are No Perfect Moments

(Still waiting for the perfect moment to act? There are no perfect moments.)

You’ve been stressed out at work and you were up late watching TiVO’d episodes of The Walking Dead. Your alarm buzzes to wake you up for the gym. Instead you hit snooze again.

There is no perfect moment.

You see a cute girl talking to her friend at the bar. They’re laughing and sipping martinis. You want to say hi but she looks busy.

There is no perfect moment.

You and your husband are going over your finances. Right now you can’t afford it. Maybe next year can try to have a baby.

There is no perfect moment.

You vowed to start your diet tomorrow but you’ve got a friend in town visiting and then it will soon be the Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas trifecta.

There is no perfect moment.

You’ve been meaning to update your blog but you’ve just been so busy lately.

There is no perfect moment.

He just got out of a relationship but you feel like you’re finally ready to start dating again.

There is no perfect moment.

You really want to go back to school to get your Masters but with the bills and the overtime hours at work it doesn’t seem like a good idea.

There is no perfect moment.

You should really quit the job you hate but you just need a couple more paychecks and the economy is horrible right now.

There is no perfect moment.

You’ve always wanted to go to Europe but you’ve got a pretty hectic schedule at work  and you really wanted to refinish the cabinets in the kitchen and buy that new TV.

There is no perfect moment.

You want to kiss her but…

There are no perfect moments.
There are no perfect times to take action.
In life, we have to create perfect moments.
