Wow my kids gone to University - Am i that old

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Its funny but even though I run a business have many responsibilities I have always thought that I was about 26 years old. Despite being overweight for the past 14 years I have been lucky enough to be strong fit and healthly.

Despite a few minor health issues in the past 18 months (DVT) i still felt young and invincible.

Well my eldest child has gone to university and is having a great time and my other child will be going in 6 months and at last the realisation that I am a father of 2 kids old enough to leave home has forced me to realise that I am 46 not 26 that my body is not going to keep on taking the abuse I give it and that I need to start looking after it.

As my kids learn how to fly in life I need to ensure that my body is in good enough shape so that my wife and I can enjoy the next new and exciting time of our lives.

Be happy

    Again, you strike a chord with me. We never grow too old for change or re-inventing ourselves. I'm enjoying things today that I somehow missed as a child and young adult. It's a pretty amazing time of life. Get ready for the ride of a lifetime!! emoticon

    emoticon Technically each day is Day 1 of this journey as yesterday is over with. So, take this journey one day, one decision, one bite, one step at a time and all this will add up to progress -- perfection is not the goal, but continual progress is guaranteed with healthy decisions on a daily basis.
