So today I was wondering, where the time has gone?
Where have the years disappeared? Where’d they go?
Some people say life is short…but I think their wrong.
I think life is long.
When you’re young, you feel like you have to live as fast and as hard as possible because this whole thing could be gone at any time. What we don’t realize when we are younger that life is long, and that the bodies that we inhabit need to be used for 70, 80, 90 maybe even 100 years.
So we have to take care of ourselves in a way that will support this body that we are inside of 50, 60, 70 years from today.
The things that you do today, this week, this month, this year; those are the things that determine the state you are going to be in many, many, many years down the road.
Life is long.
Things you are doing right now are going to shape the person you become on this long journey that we call life.
Life is not short, life is long.
You never know what your future is going to be. You may be young now, and you may think “Hey, I’m not going to live forever, I might be dead in 3 or 4 years.” And your lifestyle might be lived in that way. That’s what I did…
But then I realized. I found out that I wasn’t going to die young. That wasn’t part of my destiny, and now that I am going to be here for a long time and apparently, I needed to take better care of myself, and that’s when I started to make these major changes in my life.
I think that you should consider doing the same.
Place a bet on yourself,. Bet that you’re going to make it, bet that you’re going to live to be an old man or an old woman.
Start investing in yourself so that when you get down the road, and you are that old man or that old woman, you feel good, you look good, you can take care of yourself, and you can afford to buy yourself something to eat. Those things are going to be determined by the things you do now.
Starting today, make a bet on yourself and start investing in the future you.
Because the future you is going to need you.
Because life is not short, life is long.
