Observed on the street: time for a change

I found this little sign in a gift shop in Smithers, British Columbia:

Time changes everything. Does it? And if so, how? Is the secret in the simple fact that “time heals,” or does the passing of time allow us to gain a better perspective on life, loss, value and what really matters in the long run?

Time changes everything. I want to believe that it will, but I’m looking for the proof.

Instructions for life #3: Do it now

Don’t wait too long to do the things that feel right to you, in the moment when you really feel them pull you. If you do, you might miss the opportunity to grab those things altogether.

Life doesn’t often offer second chances or do-overs. It doesn’t usually insert same amazing people or the same potential experiences into your path more than once. So when you do meet those amazing people or encounter those potential experiences — the ones that really call to you and move you at a deep level — trust yourself enough to follow your heart into action in that moment. Don’t worry about what other people might think, and don’t be put off by “the unknown.” Be brave, and be confident, and honour the energy building inside you while it is still building, because that energy is there for a reason, and that reason wants to be heard.

Do it now, before the next opportunity that really speaks to you stops calling your name for good.
