Just about a year ago the leaves on this tree in my backyard began its autumn ritual of falling off. On one particular day the wind was high and the tree relinquished a vast amount of its autumn-hued leaves. I watched as they danced, twirled and floated to the ground. It was beautiful. As they came off the tree and remained suspended in the air for a bit the leaves looked like notes on a music scale. The thought ran through my mind to grab a camera and take a picture of their glorious exit, but I decided I would do it the following day. That day never came.
During the night the majority of the leaves fell off and I missed the opportunity to capture their farewell song. To this day I wonder what song they sang.
This year I wait with expectation for the leaves to begin their dance to the music only they can play. And, I will capture their once in a lifetime musical.
So, to you my friend, in your business and your life, I say “seize the day”. Capture the beauty and opportunity of each day and live with no regrets.
Below, share one thing you will do to seize the day.
