The past...the future

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Today's visualization video scared me. I truly became a bit anxious. What will I be doing 10 years from now? Who will be in my life? Where will I be?
Now, why this makes me nervous I can't really say except that time really does have a way of moving along faster than we really think. I am already dealing with arthritis in my hands and aching more bouncing up from the floor as I used to do. Maybe that is why I feel a bit unnerved. But, I also know that there is no time like the present to be the best I can be. There is no way to go back to my younger days.

Who will I be in 10 years?? Well, I don't know. All I do know is that I have today to be the best I can be. To eat the foods that fuel my body. To love my family and friends to fuel my soul. To be active to to be that better me and give my heart a healthy jolt.

Thanks Spark People for forcing me to look at the past and to envision the future. My vision includes a healthy and active me. It is up to me to make that happen.

    It is so important to have a vision of what you want in the future... but then to stay grounded in the present and live one day at a time...

    I feel the same way and try to be hopefully optimistic. We never know what the future holds.

    Great blog. We all need to look ahead, but at the same time, you can only control what you do today.

    Think of it as a blank palette: what do you WANT to see happening in your life 10 years from now? This can be the carrot that helps you to keep moving forward! :-)
