I have my early retire date as May 1, 2005 @ 50 - birthday 4/17
It is when I read inspirational items like those below that I just want to do it now.
For those of you who say do it today: I am getting everything ready - health checks, finances in order, getting the house ready for sale, list of things to do etc.
Your day to do it
This day is yours to live just once. Yet that is more than enough. For you can fill this day with love, with effort, with beauty and joy. You can put purpose and meaning into every moment.
You can live this day in such a way that you'll be forever thankful for having known it. You can do things today that will positively affect your life and your world from this point forward.
The rapid passing of time works against you only if you waste and abuse that precious time. If, on the other hand, you make full and joyful use of your time, each passing moment becomes your forever friend.
This is a day to create treasures that will last a lifetime and beyond. Imagine that opportunity, and imagine the possibilities.
Then step forward and bring those possibilities to life. Today is your day to do it.
