When to Make a Decision

Have you ever planned to ‘go on a diet’ or ‘start exercising’ (or insert plan here) on Monday? Or any other future date?

Well guess what?

You can’t make a decision for the future, you can only make a decision for today.

A decision for the future is only a wish or consideration.

Nothing ever happens with ‘good intentions’ and you won’t meet your goals by intending to do something.

And time marches on.

I was reminded of this as we just celebrated Mother’s Day; this was the 5th one without my Mom. She passed away starting to work on her health. She had good intentions to make healthy changes but time slipped away from her.

It happens to us all.

On a personal note, I’ve been divorced for 8 years this summer. For years now, I’ve ‘intended’ to start dating and getting on with that area of my life, but so far I just haven’t. (At this rate, I should just start to get cats and be the crazy ole cat lady – except I will fill my home with dogs…)

I’ve thought that ‘some day’ I’ll make an effort towards finding someone special…

But there is no ‘some day’ on the calendar.

I’ve realized that I can’t make a decision to date in the future, if I’d like someone special in my life, I have to make a decision to do something about it today. So far, the most I’ve done is start to tell people that this is something I’d like – but it’s a start, it’s a little action step.

The same goes for you where your health is concerned.

Are you intending to take up a sport? Start exercising? Eat more healthy foods?

Are you currently taking ANY steps in that direction?

If you know that it’s a wise decision to ‘up your health game’, don’t wait a day longer.

Until you implement a small change today, nothing will ever change. And remember, small changes or baby steps will take you a long way over time.

What healthy decision can you make today? What small change can you implement?

For me, in the area of relationships, I’ve put word out that I’m single.

I’ll keep you posted on my next action step because as Will Rogers says:

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.’ 😉

If you need some support, I’d be happy to discuss your best course of action.
