Need change? Then let it happen!

Indeed. I’m always saying that it’s time for things to begin afresh. Get rid of the old, bring in the new… that sort of thing. Our entire lives have brought us to this point. The paths we’ve chosen, the detours we’ve taken, the sights we’ve seen, the memories we’ve made, the food we’ve tasted, the people we’ve met… the dreams we’ve had.

Everything.

But also, that everything is now behind us. Millions of new anythings and everythings are ahead of us, waiting to be discovered. If we want a group of particular everythings, now is the only moment we can set things in motion to reach and achieve them. We may get some of them in the next few seconds… we may have to wait a while for others. Or we may not want change, and would like to keep things as they are. That’s also a choice that can only be made now. Everything about our future begins now.

Me? I’m embarking on a new fitness regime right now. I’m toning up. My body knows it. I can feel it already.

That means weight training. Running. Sit ups. Bendy bar exercises.

World… be warned. Exercise and I weren’t exactly designed to go together, or to flow together!

But everything has been designed to change. Even, it seems, my body.

I’ll end on a rather famous quote:

Just Do It!

Right then. Let’s get to it!

  1. Sometimes it makes my head hurt to think of all the things that have gone before (millions of years worth of it) and all the things that are still to come…
    Good luck with the new regime – you can do it! 🙂

      And thank you – although I’m taking it nice and easy.

  2. My doctor told me to start my exercise regime gradually, so I looked at a website selling sweatpants! 😉

    God Bless!

    1. Thanks for the share, CM. Over and over things get a tad annoying though, don’t they? Fun though (the first time around!) 😀

  4. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, but stay off the pudding for now. 🙂

    1. Once I’m into it I’ll be fine, Diane. I’ve done it many times before, so I know what to expect… and what to avoid!
