The Second Best Time

The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now. – Chinese Proverb

There are times I'm really hard on myself.

Asking questions like, "Why didn't you do that 20 years ago?"

So today leave that all behind.

The past is gone.

Sitting here in the present

I know

That the second best time for you or me to

Take the leap

Publish that book

Talk to her

Listen to him

Start the business

Plant the idea


It is the only time.

And twenty years from now, 

You and I both know that we don't want to be asking, "Why didn't you do that 20 years ago?"

Recognize that Now is the Only time 

It is all there is. 

So...enjoy this moment,

And breathe it in.
