If not now, when?

If not you, who? If not here, where? If not now, when?

I am not certain who first came up with that, but it is powerful, inspirational, and can apply to each one of us in our own way.

How many times have we had things on our "to do" list that we never get around to? Near where I live there are a few funeral homes that I pass every day, and that prompts the question. If you are of a mature age and you have not yet done things that you say you really want to do, when will you?

Our priorities do change in the course of a lifetime. They can change within the course of a year, or a day. What should we go for? What should we forget about? What should come on or go off our list?

So if we were to prompt ourselves with these few powerful questions, how would we answer?
