Time’s ticking – what are you doing with it?
Sometimes I dwell on the fact that I let my health go for so long and I forget to celebrate that I have turned it around. I have to keep reminding myself that there is no time machine. The past is the past. There’s no point looking back, I’m not going that way. But how can you not? It’s hard not to look back. It’s easy to dwell on what-ifs and if-only. I catch myself doing these things and have to consciously tell myself that it’s no use.
A couple of days ago I came across this article on how to have the best perspective on life. #12 read as follows:
“The past only matters in how you redeem it. It doesn’t define you, imprison you or hold you back from anything. Learn to move on and change the circumstances, and life will be more hopeful.”
Time will pass. That is a fact. In changing my eating and exercise habits I’m reminded that I am in charge of my life. I’m fortunate that way. As far as I know I get only one life, this one; one time on this planet, this time; with these people, and in this body. I can’t forget that.
Whatever you’ve been postponing…
