Today is not a dress rehearsal for tomorrow has been a favorite slogan that has gotten me off the couch, out of the pantry, and onto making better choices for how I live my life.
I heard it first awhile back when I worked at Curves – and it convinced me I still had healthy choices to make way back then.
So, over a decade later, and having regained most of what I lost — isn’t this a little late in the day evening for that kind of bravado?
Yes – but as I recently read, and cannot remember where for the life of me –
We are all going to die; until then, how will we live?
Just for today, I’ll [still] keep trying . . . no matter how slow the loss. 😉
Pablo Casals (1876-1973), the great cellist, when in his 90s, was once asked why he continued to practice on the cello for hours every day. His answer: “Because I think I’m seeing improvement.” Source
I think I see improvement too . . .
Sometimes you feel like giving up, but then you look at other people who have given up, and the results aren’t that good. ~ Robert Brault
From the kind encouraging notes you have sent me, you aren’t giving up either! Hooray for you, and all the better choices you and I have made, in our gardens, whatever the season!
So, here comes a new day . . .
Look to your health; and if you have it, praise God, and value it next to a good conscience; for health is the second blessing that we mortals are capable of; a blessing that money cannot buy. –Izaak Walton (1593-1683) _The Compleat Angler_ [1653-1655], Chapter 21
