Thank you so much for stopping by! Time appears to be flying by way too fast and I'm looking to do something exciting with the rest of my life. I'll be starting an online fitness business called "GoBeDo" sometime this year. Be sure and check in. You'll learn about High Interval Training, Yoga, Body weight exercise, Spartan races, Functional training and whole lot more. Real $hit, for Old Timers like me. Why? We only have one shot at a grandiose and fulfilling life. Let's get busy creating one. Remember, it's the start that stops most people. The last thing I want to take to my grave is "regret!"
Peace/Love and Hugs!

One Day to Live... got time ??

Take a moment and think about what you would do if you knew you only had one more day to live. Would you act any differently?

How would you relate to and treat your family and friends? Would you show them more respect and concern? Would there be some people you would ignore rather than allow them to waste the precious time you had left? Would there be some past misunderstanding that you would set straight?

What would you do if you had just one more day to live?

Next, consider how you spend your time each day. Are you glued to the TV watching the latest reality show? Do you spend time on idle gossip? Do you play time-wasting games on Facebook? Do you read all the emails that get forwarded to you?

Here’s what I really want you to consider. If you knew you had just one more day to live, how would you change the priorities of your life? Would you suddenly focus on what was truly important and ignore a lot of activities that consume your average day? It doesn’t matter to me what your answer is, but I do believe you should be honest with yourself.

You may think this exercise is foolish since you’re in good health and expect to have many more days to live. But in truth, you can only live today. You can’t live in the future; it isn’t here yet. And although some people spend a lot of their time in the past, they can’t change it. There’s nothing we can do to alter the past. And the future will unfold with circumstances and challenges we can’t anticipate. We can only live today. Life is lived one day at a time, and today is the only day you can live your life. When tomorrow does come, it will be today.

If you really put some thought into the questions I’ve posed, you’ll realize that there are lots of moments when you aren’t truly living today to its fullest. You can’t save life until tomorrow. You can either make the most of today or you can choose to waste it. You can spend your time on unimportant things or you can focus on what truly matters to you.

If you answered my earlier questions and found that you would change your behavior if you only had one day to live, I suggest you give some thought to focusing more on what’s important to you in life. Today is truly the only day you can live. Make the most of it. Because someday, it will be the last day of your life, and then it will be too late to change...
