Can you imagine if you had been doing this all along? Exercising daily. Paying attention to your diet. Basically, doing all the things you know you should be doing. Imagine what you would look like now. Imagine being healthy, happy, and confident.
The past is gone. Forever. Imagining what would have been is pointless. Not learning from the past is reckless and foolish. Even though we are not guaranteed a tomorrow or another 10-20 years, take a moment a picture your two possible selves of the future. One never learned from the past and continued on the same path of complacency. That person is out of shape, not happy, and loaded with potential health problems. The vision of your other future is completely different. This person made the most of everyday. She is in shape. She is confident. Her dedication to fitness went beyond her physical body and extended to her whole lifestyle opening a new world of possibilities.
Begin to be now what you will be hereafter. –William James
