For years I found every reason to not get started.
I fought the intro.
Don’t wait to get started on things.
Don’t fight the intro.
350 days ago, I was blessed to finally be disgusted with myself enough to change, precisely as the world was coming apart at the seams. I was overweight, unhealthy, unfocused and by most measures; unhappy.
I was lost in the Wilderness.
Fortunately, there was one of those “long, hard look in the mirror” moments.
I started turning my “should’s” into “musts”.
Day by day, things started to improve. I got healthier; lost 50 pounds, got back into running and golfing, made improvements to my diet, and cut out alcohol. I sleep better than I have in twenty years.
I let go of that toxic ego which allowed relationships to begin healing and new friendships to blossom.
Then my mother got cancer. Then my wife and I had another baby. Then my father passed away.
Reclaiming my health put me back in touch with the best aspects of myself when I needed them the most. Instead of wallowing, what happened was a reawakening of sorts. A reminder that our time is finite and unknowable. That the clock is ticking.
