When we wake up one morning and take a good look in the mirror we may see someone else looking back at us. Although familiar in appearance, someone we know, there is something wrong.
Time has not been good as it has attacked our very person, played havoc with our well being and run amok amid the bones and sinew.
We take a few moments of time and consider what had happened over the past few years. All that food, the stuff we are always told to keep our distance from yet cannot seem to; call our name as we pass them on the supermarket shelves. Cake calls our name, alcohol whispers in our ear, ready cooked chicken pecks at our hunger. All this and more marks the path that leads us all to the same look in the mirror, the realisation of age. Oh! Woe is me. (And you)
I have heard and not sure of its truth or origin that eating well, (I thought I did that) exercise and living a true and godly existence may even extend one’s life by up to five years.
Then I get to thinking what I could do in five years in my forties and what I can do in five years in my seventies. Yup I am too late; time has passed me by in a blinking of an eye.
But if you are in your forties and are reading this then you may consider using the time now to change your life to an alternative path, one where you really do live for the moment.
If you are in your sixties, do you need to carry on working and if your answer is yes then list down 10 reasons why you must. (Makes very poor reading doesn’t it?)
The simplest of changes to your routine can spark a new beginning making time your friend. Speak to others and find out about them, what do they do, what hobbies have they got. Degzy quote; “an active mind if not accompanied by an active body equals a very clever vegetable.” (Hmm food again)
You know that while I have written this time has passed and I realise it will not come back, however It may have been worthwhile if someone else reading my scrawling takes time to think and make changes to their lives
