Life will never be perfect, so just begin moving in the direction of your dreams. Life will catch up—or it won’t. Doesn’t matter. At least you’ll be making a go of it.
Regrets don’t have to go far back (although a lot of times they do). My most recent ones: first, last year, going in a career direction I knew in my gut and heart was wrong for my life, and second, not beginning my writing work sooner (any writing work—not the perfect writing work). I should have started.
Start. Start now. Don’t wait.
