What is it about tomorrow? We always say:
Well, tomorrow’s a brand new day.
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow, you’re only a day away.
Just sleep on it and figure it out tomorrow.
Tomorrow has become a coping concept within our lifestyles. Instead of living in the moment, we settle for tomorrow to have the answer we are looking for. We’ll figure it all out tomorrow.
Especially when it comes to taking initiative on our health.
We always say:
Tomorrow I will start working out.
Tomorrow I will start that diet.
Tomorrow I will start living a healthy lifestyle.
We use tomorrow as a crutch for the inevitable necessities in our life. We’ll hold off just a little bit longer, even by just a minute, in order to put off life’s decisions.
In all reality, tomorrow isn’t just a day away. We will do anything to wait and see what happens, even though life is happening right now.
John Lennon famously said, “Life happens while you’re busy making other plans.” This concept is especially applicable to the decisions we make about our health as we get older, and hopefully wiser, the necessity of making a conscientious decision becomes more imperative. We choose to eat the candy instead of the apple. We choose to take the elevator instead of the stairs. We are constantly choosing the way we want to live and the route we want to take in every present moment, yet our mindset tends to drift off into the future.
Sure I’ll treat myself to a 7-course meal tonight, but tomorrow I’ll be sure to work it off at the gym.
Today needs to be the day where we make the change. We need to stop waiting. We need to stop counting on the unknown and instead stay present in what we know right here, right now.
Empowering yourself to make the small decisions everyday will create many more tomorrows.
