This is a great video. It is short, so watch it if you can before you continue. It gives life perspective in just a few minutes. I like things that make me think and ponder. This video does just that.
What are you going to do today. One day. Not tomorrow, not yesterday, but today. You have choices to make, either good or bad.
When I began running, it was hard. Actually, for me everyday is hard. My body isn’t made for running. I was born with hips and feet that turned inward quite a bit. I had to have corrective shoes and a bar between my feet holding my hips and feet in the correct position. Today you cannot tell that I had a problem, but that problem makes running harder. When my body gets tired, my hips hurt and my feet turn inward. That happens by the end of almost every run.
I don’t run because it makes me feel better. I like the consequences of running. I like that I have lost a lot of weight. I like that I look fit. I like that people who know me, notice even now, changes in my physical condition. I like the fact I am off my CPAP. I like the fact I am almost off all medications (I’m getting off my last one right now). I like running for what it does for me, but running hurts me physically a lot of times. Not major pain, just 50 year old aches and pains that I have to deal with.
What choices are you going to make today. If you want to do something and do it well, make it a habit by doing it at the same time everyday. Eventually that choice will become a habit and then the choice is no longer a choice.
The end of the video asks, “What are you going to do today?” The answer may not be running. DO SOMETHING TODAY. Make today a day you would want to write about in a blog!
What are you going to do today?
THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
