Sobering Thoughts & Life Events

So I had some sobering thoughts the other day and I had talked about it with my husband, then decided to share them again on facebook and with you all.  It was weighing heavy on my mind for several days, got me down a little bit honestly.

So it dawned on me that my mom and my husband are about 21-22 years in age difference the other day.  If you don’t know, my mom was recently diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer.  She’s undergoing treatment, but the prognosis is not good at all even with treatment.  …My husband has struggled off and on with health issues himself.  Typical ones, like digestive issues, headaches and sinus stuff, but they’re ongoing.  He’s gotten checked out and gone through tons of testing, but nothing major.

However, my concern is if he doesn’t make some changes soon, he may be facing some more serious issues.  We met each other 21-22 years ago…the same amount of time between my husband and my mom’s ages.  It’s a lot of time on the one hand, but at the same time it’s not.  Time flies by so fast.  If we don’t tell it where to go, it will be gone and we will be wondering what happened in those years.

What I mean by telling your time where to go, is you take control of it & not just letting life happen, going with the flow.  Money is the same way.  If you don’t designate where your money goes, it will be gone and you will wonder where, to who, to what…

We underestimate what we can do in a day, and we overestimate what we can do in a year.  I think that’s a John Maxwell quote, but not for sure.  It’s so true though.  We have these big plans, new years resolutions and goals each year…but we fail to realize it’s in the daily planning and DOing that gets it done.

You and only YOU have control over your life and your decisions!  Please don’t keep waiting & putting your health and well-being on hold!  I can give you all the tools, the accountability and the support…but ultimately you are the one to make those changes in your own life.

I so want to see others succeed!  And as for my husband, I can just keep praying and showing him the way and what healthy looks and feels like, and hope he makes that choice for himself & not only starts, but continues to take action until it becomes a lifestyle.  I hope the same for you!
