If You Took It Away

If you took away all my money, I can earn it back again.

If you took away my health in the process, I’d find it harder.

If you took away people precious to me, I’d have no reason to.

Yet why is it that so many are obsessed about the money – and not so much about their health or precious people?

Think about it as you enjoy precious time with your dear ones!

If you took it away


Why not TODAY?

Why Not Today

Someone who heard about my hectic, yet fun day with the 24-hour non-stop Heart Kids blogathon said: “I’m inspired to do the same some day.”

My reply: Thanks, but why not begin TODAY?

It’s exactly how the fund raising event was set into motion several years ago – by someone asking me, “Why not just get going TODAY?”

While it’s nice to want to wait until certain specific circumstances and situations arise, the reality is there is no better time than now.

No better day than today.

No better person than YOU.

To decide to go after your dreams.

And I don’t just mean doing charity or non-profit work. Even your own business, career and personal goals begin today.

One of my favorite quotes comes from a famous Indian freedom fighter, Netaji Subash Chandra Bose:

Yesterday is gone.
Tomorrow may never come.
Today is yours.
Act. Act. Act.
