Well! It Is About Time

Okay folks! The other day a friends said, "Ron, life isn't a dress rehearsal, but it is the real thing...what are doing about the "real thing" now!" Wow! He rung my bell. So often I get caught up in working toward the future, treating life as a destination rather than a journey, that I forget about being fully present in the now.

Well here is my now! My sister, Terry, is fifty-one years old and next week she is going to run the San Francisco Marathon. My father says that she will finish because she is stubborn. I find myself amazed at her discipline and I am so very proud of her, and her example has caused me to begin to examine my own commitments to physical well-being. I fantasize about joining my sister and/or my daughter, Rachel, in a marathon though I might walk.

I know that one's physical well-being is interrelated with your emotional and spiritual well-being, but I haven't paid enough attention to the later. Well, a very large brick hit me right between the eyes when my friend said, "life isn't a dress rehearsal,"and I began to think, "And my body is the real thing."

I have said the following for the last time, "Tomorrow, I am going to walk....Tomorrow.....I am going to work at losing weight." Well tomorrow will never come unless I make tomorrow now.
Some may say that I risk too much by by publically acknowledging my life long struggle with weight, but most people who know me know about this intensely personal struggle. Now is the time to do something.....So pray for me, and encourage me along the way.

My dream is that one year from now I will be walking the moors of the Northern Yorkshire, England for 10-days as a healthy, in shape human being, who is writing about his new life as a pilgrim on the way.

If you find yourself identifying with any of these thoughts then simply remember that we are never alone, and that this life is the "real thing."

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
