To Do or Not To Do

I have been told so many times that I always rush headlong into things without giving them second thoughts. I know this is true,I am always scolding myself for continually biting off more than I can chew. I want to do and be so many things, I have a hundred things I want to do, thousands of places to go, and countless stuff to see. My dad always tells me to ‘slow down’ and a friend told me the other day to ‘ settle and just do one thing at a time’. I see the wisdom in their words, but at the same time I ask – ‘why?’ I don’t know how long my allotted time is here on earth, it could be many more years or it could be a few months. Why should I miss out by being ‘careful’ and ‘slowing down’? There are so many amazing experiences and adventures, I say take each opportunity that comes your way. I do have a problem with seeing things out, especially continuous, long endeavors, and I do have to  learn to stick with them and finish with the same passion I started with, but at the same time I am not going to give up on any wonder or magic, experience or excitement that comes my way. I might run myself down, make the wrong choices, end up at the wrong place or make a bit of a mess of things – but I can still know in my heart that I lived and that I did as much as I could in the time allotted me. I have wasted enough time already worrying and trying to please others, but the future, in all it’s secrecy, is still waiting for me.
