It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 5, Page 22, Book 18

Don’t let the fear of the time it takes to accomplish
something stand in the way of your doing it.  The time will
pass anyway:  we might just as well put that passing time
to the best possible use.

Earl Nightingale

There are always reasons to be found for not doing things.  More and more people go with the tide and let others decide what they will do.

I’ve learned that it is important to be myself and decide what I want to do with my life and not let others decide for me.  What I do is my choice and no one can take that away from me.

Do what you feel in your heart to be right — for you’ll be criticized anyway.
You’ll be damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

Eleanor Roosevelt

At the end of the day, nobody else can tell you what makes you happy, We know ourselves better than anyone else. When we follow our hearts we have no regrets. When we are in tune with what our hearts are saying to us to do, we find what direction we should take. 

To do what is right is always the best direction and so we do it anyway...

It’s impossible, said pride.
It’s risky, said experience.
It’s pointless, said reason.
Let’s do it anyway, said the heart.

So true when we follow our hearts we have no regrets. I too agree with you, I rather choose and decide what I'm going to do with my life than have others decide for me. Even in a workday, I still have the choice on how I'll spend it afterward and the attitude I'll have while working it.

True that! How many times I've used the excuse, "I'm too old to ..."
So many opportunities! There's lots I probably NEED to do, but I'm trying to identify something that contains the word, WANT.

I read a book about a man who began building a cathedral even through he knew he would not live to see it completed.
It made me think.

Working makes me happy. That is work I WANT to do, not necessarily what someone else WANTS done. I even enjoy that too, but not like when I want to do it.
I enjoyed the read sweet lady.

being yourself is the most important thing to be. "Let’s do it anyway, said the heart."
