“Time goes by like hurricanes and faster things.” — The Allman Brothers Band
There’s this group my dad liked called The Allman Brothers Band. Liking the group turned out to be hereditary. They have this song on their album “Eat A Peach” titled “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More.” At 30, I must say that is true. This year, I committed to be better, stronger, and more intentional in my moves. I’m going to enjoy life but I’m going to do it because I put in the work that will allow me to.
This year alone, I’ve begun a new project that I’m launching a few weeks from now, started writing a book, on track to finish my second book of the year, and have a few writing and photographic partnerships on my calendar. I feel healthier than I’ve felt in a while because of my better diet and more exercise. I’m happy because of time spent meditating. Like the song says, I ain’t wastin’ time no more. Life is too short and I’m trying to manage my joy to regret ratio now before I tilt too far in the wrong direction.
Make joy a priority.
