I’m sitting here, tapping away on my laptop. Outside my window are patches of white, remnants from last week’s snowfall. It’s cold and overcast but I spot the sun’s rays streaming through a few cracks in the clouds. I have multiple windows open on my laptop: my email, Twitter, facebook and my blogs. Three travel articles about faraway places with warmer climes are nearing completion. I double-check the photos which accompany the articles and I begin to reminisce about my trips to those places; exploring nooks and corners in crowded towns, lying on the beach and being totally awe-struck by a stunning sunset and having loads of fun with my friends.
Where would I rather be on this cold Monday morning? Frolicking in the sea off a tropical island or lying in a hammock under the palm trees? I think about this for a few seconds and I realise, no, I’d rather be where I am right now. There is a time and place for everything. We all have our dreams and every moment is the best time to live them. Right now, I’m living my dream of writing about my travels and, hopefully, inspiring others to explore and experience our world. There will be other moments when I will be living my other dreams, like travelling around the world, swimming with whale sharks or observing the Northern lights. Those moments will come and go but I would’ve been there in mind and person, and I would be pinching myself that it’s all real, like I’m doing right now. Ouch… that hurt!
Live in the moment and make each and every one count. Have an inspiring Monday!
