We all blinked and now it’s the beginning of October. It’s hard to imagine where all of the time went as it feels like I just took down my Christmas decorations, and now the stores are putting their decorations back up. The awareness of how quickly time flies makes it now even more urgent to take care of the goals I set so long ago that never seemed important enough to tackle until now.
So why NOW?!? Time is an illusion. It is a tool we created to keep our world running. But blink too many times and it’s gone. I’m approaching a date for our family where we lost a man we dearly loved, and his nine year absence is felt. His death is a reminder for us that we live on borrowed time. We love, laugh, play, and cry on borrowed time. We are not promised another breath so I’m choosing to make every one of mine count. This 4th Quarter counts!
Where in your life have you slacked? Is it your relationships with friends and family? Are you carrying resentment and bitterness that prevents you from fully engaging with the people you love? Have you told yourself time and time again that THIS year will be the year to finally lose that extra weight and have the strong healthy body you desire? Have you proclaimed to not get your food through a drive-thru window and to start eating healthier only to find yourself in a food coma after too many processed and fried carbs? Are your finances a mess? What about your home?
It is never too late to take back your life! Each day, each moment, is a choice! Which choice will you make today? I hope you choose to join me in making your 4th Quarter count!
