Letting go of the past

Monday, April 30, 2012

"Regrets, I've had a few, but then again..."
Unlike the song, I've had more than a few regrets, and thinking about each one is depressing.

I can sit her and beat myself up over all the mistakes I've made, the things I haven't done, the wasted opportunities, etc. But the fact remains that no matter how much I do that, NOTHING will change the past.
So from now on, I'm trying to focus on TODAY. I CAN change what will happen today!
No matter what I did before, I need to figure out what works TODAY to get me where I want to be. My metabolism is slower than it used to be, my hair is turning gray, wrinkles are a fact of life, and I'm never going to look 20 again, even if I act like I'm 10! It is what it is.
I have to accept that I can't eat like I used to and still lose weight. I have to be even more careful about my food choices, keeping my calories in line, and increase my exercise.
Life is lived only one day at a time. For TODAY, I can do this. And for each new "TODAY" that comes, I can say to myself, I can do this for TODAY, one day at a time!
