The Dance of Life

Do you sometimes feel that, for whatever reason, time is no longer on your side? Do you wish you could turn back the clock? Sorry.

In his famous, I Have a Dream speech, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. reminded us that:

“We are faced with the fact, my friends, tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is no such thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time. Life often leaves us standing bare, naked, and dejected with a lost opportunity. The tide in the affairs of men does not remain at a flood – it ebbs. We may cry out desperately for time to pause in her passage, but time is adamant to every plea and rushes on. Over the bleached bones and jumbled residues of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words, “Too late.”

From time to time, many of us may feel similar sentiments, especially today. The times are uncommon. Uncertainty and fear are creeping around the edges, sniffing at the centre.

We all face barriers, challenges and fears of one kind or another and have occasional setbacks. That’s how life goes. One step forward, two steps back, but it is never too late. Not if you don’t want it to be.

Stay strong. Even as the clock keeps ticking, in the dance of life, the trick is to keep on dancing.
