“A year from now, you will wish you had started today.”
– Author and journalist, Karen Lamb
I don’t know who Karen Lamb is, but she is absolutely right. A year from now, I will have wished I started on my book and gone to the gym. If I started this time last year, I would be well on my way to a first draft and a bikini body by now. But alas, that didn’t happen.
Seriously, what the hell am I waiting for?! I had plenty of time this weekend to take an exercise class or do a little research. Not that I was sitting around doing nothing.
Hey, here’s something. I cleaned out my kitchen pantry today. I felt productive, and the pantry looks so neat and organized. But I know it’s an exercise in futility because I can almost guarantee the cereal boxes will be wide open again next weekend with stale Cheerios inside.
And, did a few loads of laundry, so we all have underwear this week.
(Cue the eye roll)
You guys, weekends are supposed to be relaxing and maybe even fulfilling. I did chores on the weekend when I was a teenager. Why am I still doing them now? I have teenagers of my own for G-d sake. It’s their turn!
Ok, time to get motivated. So, I’ll end with this quote from another author–who I also never heard of before 😊
Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals, and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.
