I was talking to a friend yesterday who's moving to LA soon - something she's been thinking about for a long time. She grew up in a city which she never felt she truly belongs to. We chatted about the "right time", the "right age", the "right whatever"...
It made me think how many times we set out a goal and delay it further and further just because we are waiting for the "right time" to do it. Is there really ever a "right time"?
I don't think so.
You set out to do something you've never done before.
It excites and terrifies you at the same time.
But how do you know when that "right time" is if you've never done it before, therefore you're unaware of all the things that can happen along the way - good and bad, the nice and ugly?
My advice: stop waiting. There's never a "right time".
You will always upset someone with your decision.
You will always end up facing unexpected surprises you weren't prepared for.
You know what's the only sure thing that will happen?
You'll learn from it.
It'll shape you to a better YOU.
