We Only Pass This Way Once

Saturday, March 28, 2009

I've chosen the title "We only pass this way once" because I have learned that life is very precious. Each treasured moment spent with a loved one is more valuable than wealth or fame. I am at the age where friends and loved ones die which permanently eliminates the opportunities to make any more treasured moments playing scrabble, watching a movie together, taking long walks, going fishing, or just "hanging out" as the young folks say. I've heard it said that one may be poor and not have a pot or a window, but as long as one has good health life is good. Well, when ones health begins to deteriorate because of poor choices (not eating sustaining foods and exercising regularly), family and friends may soon loose out on opportunities to have cherished moments. Even though I may be over 50 and have experienced the symptoms of not being physically fit, I believe I can make the rest of my life full and rich by sharing the best of me.

    Great thoughts. One of my mantras is: "You only have one go around in this world, so make the most of it!" It is a shame that it took us so many years to decide to make more positive choices for ourselves. I can blame it on our Mom roles and putting others first, but I was also not unaware of my years yoyoing weight. I was just either in denial or into neglecting me for some reason. I love that BL has some very young folks on this season. They are an inspiration to us all not to wait until tomorrow. emoticon
