“A year from now you will wish you had started today.” ~Karen Lamb
When the subject came up the other day, I realized that it’s been almost a year since my skin cancer diagnosis. It’s unbelievable that an entire year has passed. All is well, by the way, and I am grateful everyday for my dermatologist, Dr. Minh Dang, who found the nondescript lesion and performed my surgery.
Then yesterday, I received a reminder note that it’s time for my annual mammogram. How could that be? If you had asked me, I would have said I had my last one about five or six months ago… max.
Do your days zip by in the flurry of day-to-day activities? When you reflect on the past year, do you wonder where the time went? You vowed to lose 15 pounds a year ago, but ended up gaining 10. Sound familiar?
If you have goals you want to achieve, dreams you want to fulfill, and things you want to experience, then start TODAY. It doesn’t have to be anything monumental — just one tiny step closer to getting where you want to be. By doing so, a year from now you won’t wish you had started today.
If you want to lose weight, then add a scoop of whole grains to your plate TODAY. If you want to ‘get in shape’, then start a habit of putting your shoes, socks and sunscreen by the door TODAY. Whatever it is you want to do, start now… and enjoy the journey. =)
