Reality Check

I can't believe how fast time is going. I blink and a week has passed me by. It's made me realize that we really do have to make the most of every day. From planning at night for the next day to getting up early and working out to eating healthy meals and drinking plenty of water and little coffee to recording progress to encourtaging other people (this is actually very important to me despite my lack of presence in blogland).

Life is just far too short to waste it. I guess its just really hit me recently (bday perhaps?) that we really have to make the most out of each and every day ... we never know which one wil be our last ... or how much what we do and say affects other people. You never know who's listening or reading ... Maybe you'll write something one day that makes people really stop and think ... Perhaps it will stop them from doing something they'll regret.

I had a fun experience this week. I was working with a mildly moldy file (I'm allergic to mold and asthmatic ... great combo) ... Anyway, long story short ... I now have a sinus infection. It seems to have been brought on by allergies which explains why I don't feel dreadful like I normally do. Anyway, my point is, you never know when something can derail you from regular workouts. It can be as minor as a bad cold or sinus infection to an accident, an illness or the death of a loved one.

I think this post is more for my own benefit ... A reminder to myself ... More than anything else.

The past couple of weeks have been so hectic, getting ready for the party last week, catching up this week.

I've been reading's newsletters lately (Barry bought me her first book for my birthday). I love her acronyms .. FLY is finally loving yourself; CHAOS is can't have anyone over syndrome. I think I feel a separate post coming on ....

So the moral of this story ... Carpe diem! Seize the day! It's so much more rewarding than just thinking about it.



  1. Good Morning my sweet friend ... your post is so true and a wonderful reminder .... I'm working away on the life re-building HHL Version 2.0 I've turned to cut and pasting magazine cut-outs = Living Life Board (aka. vision board)Have you try making one? I just did a post on it...

    Also lets look at our calendars as the weather starts to calm down and be less predictable and Barry need to take the drive West-North ... :)

    Hope you feel better soon... maybe its a small sign to slow down and take some Sandy time... xo HHL
