Why wait for another life?

I recently had a fascinating conversation with a client of mine that got me thinking. She had this delightful dream of packing up her life, bundling her family into a plane, and moving to a picturesque European town. 

She spoke about it with such excitement, it was clear she was meant to live there. 

“Maybe in another life,” she’d say, laughing it off.

That statement got her thinking – why not this life?

Why not take our dreams off the shelf, dust them off, and make them a reality now? 

Life is not a dress rehearsal. This is the main event. Why are we closing the curtains before the show has even started?

One of the most meaningful books I’ve ever read is The Top Five Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware, an Australian nurse who spent several years working in palliative care. She asked her patients about their regrets and what they would do differently. Their answers were pretty profound.

Some wished they had the courage to live a life true to themselves, not the life others expected of them. Others wished they hadn’t worked so hard. And then, there were those who wished they’d allowed themselves to be happier, to shake off old patterns and fears and embrace joy.

I challenged my client. If she truly felt European at heart, why not take the steps to make it happen? 

Sure, it might not be possible to pack up and move to Europe immediately, but there are always small steps we can take toward a big dream. 

Maybe it starts with learning a new language, cooking recipes from that part of the world, or planning a short visit. It’s about setting things into motion, little by little, driving that momentum.

I firmly believe that saying “yes” to what you want is an extreme sport. 

It requires bravery, resilience, and a giant splash of audacity… but the rewards are incomparable. 

The thrill of chasing after what you desire, the satisfaction of saying, “I did the damn thing!” That’s a feeling you’ll remember at the end of the day, and at the end of your life.

Don’t wait for ‘another life’ or a ‘better time.’ Stop postponing your dreams. Align with who you truly are, and step boldly in that direction. 

Don’t be the woman looking back on your life with regrets. Be the person admiring the stories you created. 

Remember, this is your life. You get to decide. 

You hold the pen that writes your story. Make it a thrilling page-turner.
