For all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: ‘It Might Have Been.

“For all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these:  ‘It Might Have Been.’’
                                                                                       John Greenleaf Whittier

There are so many things in life at various stages that when we look back and think, we feel that if we had done something differently or had been bold enough to follow our hearts and at least given it a try the result would have certainly been so much different and today the situation would have been so much better.  We find constantly within the depths of our heart and soul having brilliant ideas, thoughts and emotions that if only we had the presence of mind and a little bit of confidence to go through with it in life, we would have accomplished so many things but the fear of failure and lack of encouragement to follow one’s heart is what keeps us constantly trapped within an invisible prison of our own mind.

Today is the same future we always dreamed of, that is why today is also called a present.  If we don’t act today and keep thinking that tomorrow will be much better, that everything will get better in the future and keeping hoping and waiting for miracles to happen then we will always be chasing an illusion.  One should always keep doing something or taking a step each day; however, small or little that effort seems today towards reaching our goals.   If nothing else it is definitely a start to something that we always wanted.  After all to reach a century it always takes one single run, a single step that starts the innings.  Keep going, for sincere and earnest efforts never go wasted.

If you are really passionate about something and seriously want to see it turn into a reality you will make time for it no matter what.
