Set goals and do not let your life pass you by.


If I had my life to live over I’d like to make more mistakes next time. I’d relax. I would limber up. I would be sillier than I have been this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I would take more chances. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps have more actual trouble, but I’d have fewer imaginary ones. You see, I’m one of those people who live sensibly and sanely hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I’ve had my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I’d have more of them. In fact, I’d try to have nothing else. Just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day. I’ve been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a raincoat, and a parachute. If I had to do it again, I would travel lighter than I have. If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds, I would pick more daisies. Nadine Stair age 85.

Set goals and do not let your life pass you by. There is so much in the above passage; you can sense the passion for life still in this person. Many times I have heard it said that we do not regret in our later years the things that we did, we regret the things that we did not do and no longer have the chance to do. At any time of our lives we can set goals.  The goals that we set still cannot deny our age, but we always have the chance to stop doing more of the same, that we are usually fed up with anyway, and instead set a goal to do something new. Think, what goal would you like to set? Is there really a good reason why you have not set that goal already? Give that goal some thought and then just do it, set that goal, set that goal before the chance passes you by forever. So the clear message from Nadine Stair is – Set goals and do not let your life pass you by; Tony Brassington.
