You might be wondering (or you might not), what's with the new logo?
Why do I say we should live our dreams now, because tomorrow will be too late?
I saw an old Italian movie once called "Tomorrow Will Be Too Late". I don't remember very much what it was about, and I didn't understand it a lot.
But I remember it was about a boy who had to do everything that he wanted to do in life, NOW! Because he was dying from cancer, and for him, tomorrow would literally be too late.
You don't have to wait until you're dying from cancer (or some other deadly disease) to start to fulfil your dreams.
You've only got NOW!
You're alive NOW!
You're well enough NOW to start working towards your dreams.
You don't know what will happen tomorrow.
What if you got a deadly disease tomorrow, and you had no more time left?
What if you just keep procrastinating, and all your time runs out?
What if your favourite soap opera announces tomorrow that they've been booked for 60 more seasons? And you can't miss any episodes of your favourite soap opera, you know.
So that means you're gonna be occupied for the next 60 seasons.
All his life, my father advised me: You have to get a job that you hate and work hard at it in order to guarantee your good retirement. You have to do something that you hate until you retire. It's the only way to make sure you have money when you retire.
The only ethical thing to do, he used to say all the time, is to work hard at something that you hate until you retire. You should wait until you retire before you start to enjoy life and do the things that you like.
He spent all his days counting how many days, and weeks, and months, and years, he had left before he would retire.
He wasted his whole life waiting for retirement.
What did he do when he retired?
Did he travel around the world? Go and visit his friends? Go for walks in the
No. After he retired, he spent his whole life looking after my mother, who was
He didn't travel anywhere. He didn't work on his hobbies. He didn't go for
long, leisurely strolls in the park. He didn't visit with his friends.
He had no friends to visit. He'd spent all his waking hours working at a job
that he hated, so he never made any friends.
He didn't go travelling, because since he'd never travelled before, he was too scared to go travelling. What if he got robbed? What if he got lost?
So he didn't go travelling.
He didn't work on any hobbies. He'd spent all his waking hours working at a job
that he hated, so he didn't have any hobbies. And since he had never taken up
any hobbies, he didn't know what he liked to do, or how to do it.
So he didn't take up any hobbies.
On the other hand, my mother had dreamt of being a writer all her life.
That was her dream. She dreamt of writing a book and seeing it published. She
dreamt that people would read her words.
She sat down at her desk a thousand times to write something. But she could
never think of anything to say.
So then she went into the living-room, sat down and watched soap operas.
One soap opera led to 2. Then 3. Then 5.
By the end of her life she was spending the whole afternoon, from lunchtime to
supper, watching one soap opera after another.
Her book never got written.
I, on the other hand, know that I am writing words that people DO read.
And I really, really, really want to thank you all from the depths of my heart for reading my words
every day, on the website, in these emails.
I hope that maybe I can write the words that my mother never wrote, and that people will read these words.
On the website.
