Today is THE Day--the One Where You Reclaim Your Life

By , SparkPeople Blogger

THIS is a very special day!

There has been much discussion about this day and we weren't sure it would ever get here.  However, I've checked and I've double-checked the calendar and TODAY is THAT DAY!  Oh sure, there will be some who aren't as happy about this day as others.  I mean, if we really mean what we have said at different times, today should be an incredible day.  Today could quite possibly go down as THE highest productivity day ever in the history of the world. If this doesn't excite you, I'm not sure what will!  Your life or the life of a loved one could very well be changed FOREVER, just because today happened.

Not only is this January 2, 2012, today is SOMEDAY!

I know, I know, you NEVER thought this day would get here did you?  SOMEDAY finally arrived.  You know what day I'm talking about, right?  SOMEDAY is THAT DAY!  You know you've said something like this in the past:    

I'll get healthy someday
I'll stop eating junk food someday
I'll take better care of myself someday
Someday I'm going to go for a walk
Someday I might try running
Someday maybe I'll stop smoking
Someday we'll go to the park and play
I'll get serious about my diet someday

These are clearly just a few examples of things that could have been said about SOMEDAY.  The list could and probably does go on and on and on.  SOMEDAY, the word, could also be replaced with "MONDAY" or "ONE DAY" or maybe even "when hell freezes over."  That's right friends, TODAY is an incredible opportunity for you, a loved one, a friend, because SOMEBODY in your life will have their life changed forever.

Today is that day we get to own up to all those times we have said it in the past, right?!  I'm not talking about a New Year's resolution sort of "own up to it."  I'm talking about a life change.  This is about seriously owning up to this whole SOMEDAY mantra some of us have lived by for too long. 

This is the time to take COURAGE and own up to SOMEDAY.  Take time to own up to MONDAY or whatever day you called it.  It's HERE, the TIME IS NOW.  You want to live a long life for your family, right?  You want to see your children grow old.  You want to keep up with the grandchildren, spoil them rotten and send them home, right?  Did you realize that you have to own up to SOMEDAY and take care of your health if ANY of that is going to happen?

You can do this!  You can take your health back!  You can make the little changes necessary to live a very long fulfilling life.  It's not too late!  I'm willing to help you. I want to help you, because my “someday” came two years ago.  Over the next four weeks, I would love to share with you the steps that I took to regain my health.  These steps are very simple.  This is going to be so awesome!   I look forward to meeting with you here each week to help your SOMEDAY into EVERYDAY!
