We freelancers are always being told to save a buffer fund in case our work dries up, or we need to take time out for whatever reason.
The message we hear is: “We need to save for the future”.
But we also need to live for today – the here and now. This message was brought home to me loud and clear last week when we heard that the wife of my husband’s closest friend had suddenly been taken ill and was lying in a coma in hospital.
We can’t predict the future and we don’t know what lies in store for us just around the corner. So we need to make the most of the present moment.
That’s why I decided to take advantage of today’s wonderful sunshine and spend a couple of hours walking by the river. I returned revived and refreshed and glad to have soaked up some winter sun.
Carpe diem – what are you going to do to make the most of today?
