As you get older, you start to notice things that may not have been an issue when you had a body and mind that was 20 years younger.
I look at this as the “I want to, but I don’t” syndrome. For example:
I want to eat healthier, but I don’t.
I want to drink less, but I don’t.
I want to exercise more, but I don’t.
I want to lose weight, but I don’t.
I want to live a less stressed life, but I don’t.
That’s a lot of wants that I don’t do, simply because of excuses. Or, the simple fact I enjoy the don’ts more than I want the want to’s.
Besides, there’s always tomorrow, right?
Except there isn’t. Tomorrow never comes, because when it does a new tomorrow waits, and the same wants clash heads with the dont’s that never become do’s.
And it shouldn’t take the tomorrow that never comes to make you – make me – realize that waiting for that tomorrow is another want that will never be.
Time to wake up.
