Have you ever said to yourself, ďIíll start over tomorrow?Ē We all have. Tomorrow... Iíll start my new diet, Iíll get back to the gym, Iíll get it together. Well, Sparkers, you already know what I am about to say: Tomorrow is here.
I am a proficient procrastinator. And Iíve attempted so many do-overs that I feel over and done. So what makes this time any different? Itís not a new year, a new month, a new week; heck, itís not even a new day. Iíve been up for 3 hours, and already Iíve missed my breakfast and skipped going for a morning walk. Thereís nothing special about this moment, right? Wrong.
I am tired. Tired of waiting for the ideal time, for that opportunity to come knocking at my door. Itís time to take a long, hard and honest look at myself, and see WHY Iím waiting in the first place. What is keeping me from moving forward? What is stopping me from making that commitment to take care of myself?
No, today is not perfect. I have made mistakes, and will make more. But itís time to accept that waiting for the ideal moment will lead to just that Ė waiting. Itís time to wake up! The right time is here; it always has been. Iím awake now, and Iím not waiting any longer.
Get up! Get going! And keep getting better.
