We Can’t Stay In the Fish Tank

What is a life put on hold? Not much of a life, that’s for sure. Yet, people choose to live like this, putting their lives on hold until that “someday,” which may or may not come.

Just in case you do not know this, life is actually meant to be enjoyed. Yes, life has its hardships and downturns, but while we are here on this earth, we are to make the most of it and utilize our time at maximum effort.

Living your life can’t wait.

If you are putting something on hold right now, what is the reason? Is the reason valid (many are, but many aren’t), or is it an excuse not to live?

If you have ever watched the movie “Finding Nemo,” you will remember a group of fish escaping the dental office (see video below).

We need to be like these fish. Let’s be bold, courageous, and make a decision not to stay cooped up in our “fish tanks,” which is a metaphor for our minds. Let’s escape our minds, our worlds, our limits, and LIVE.
