your health is taken for granted every single day that you go about living your life without thinking about it. instead of being mindful of your health, instead of every single day doing things that keep you healthy, we ignore everything until something happens. then we try and play catch up, go into defensive mode, try and fix things. all because we simply don;t live every day thinking about and planning for health.
change it. change how you live. do it now. you are guaranteed nothing. especially nothing beyond the moment you are living in. you don’t have to plan for change, you don’t have to establish anything besides getting up off your ass and going for a walk and eating fruits and vegetables for your next dinner. then do better the next day and teach yourself as you go along. you might not have the chance to fix things, correct your health, unless you start today.
i’ve been stupid. i forgot that being lazy is the fastest way to ask for ill health. i forgot to prioritize myself and i put work first. i forgot that simple things still need to be maintained. so now starts the catch up. the chasing the health i took for granted and ignored. the remembering that i am not 20 with my life of presumed health in front of me with all the time in the world to correct anything if it comes up because this life we have is not long. it’s not long enough. and we don’t have time to be stupid about our health.
