In May of 2020, this stupid catchphrase changed my life.
I was lost in the Wilderness.
I was unhealthy. I was unhappy. I was unmotivated to change.
I wasn’t even a good party guest anymore.
One day I had a reckoning. It dawned on me that no body was going to come and save me from myself. It dawned on me that I was wasting my time. I was wasting my talents, or whatever talents I thought I possessed.
And it dawned on me that while I was watching my young boys get older, I wasn’t as engaged as I’d hoped to be.
I was missing it.
But thankfully there was that day of reckoning.
There was the realization that we cannot help those who do not want to help themselves.
And I had to help myself.
It was a damn struggle at first.
And it sucked.
But I started getting back in better shape. Which led to better sleep. Which led to better discipline when it came to eating. Which led to normalized cholesterol and blood pressure. Which led to improved moods. Which led to better relationships. Which led to more fulfillment and happiness.
Which led to a better me.
Now, more than ever before in the history of the world, our destiny is in our hands.
If you don’t like it, get better.
