The Land of WHEN…

“It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.” -Eckhart Tolle

Are you living in the distant land of WHEN, postponing a state of happiness or action until something else is perfect?  WHEN I lose weight, I’ll have the confidence to do this. WHEN I have more work experience, I’ll be taken seriously. WHEN I get into shape, I’ll feel good about my body. WHEN I have financial stability, I’ll finally be able to relax.

Consider instead the land of WHAT IF: WHAT IF you are good enough as you are, right now? WHAT IF someday is today? WHAT IF not trying is worse than the possibility of failing? WHAT IF you already had everything you need to be happy? What if, as Agnes de Mille writes,  instead of waiting for things to be perfect, you already “Dance in the body you have”?
