What ever it may be, DO IT! :~)
This weekends quote is inspired by my Weight Watchers meeting this week. The meeting was great, another member reached a 70lb loss and the group celebrated her accomplishment. THAT’S why I love going.
Besides the celebration the topic this week started off with a quote by Mark Twain that I never heard…
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
How true! The advice that you all gave me when I was considering the casting call for the next food network star was very similar. In 20 years, whether or not I got a call back won’t matter. I will never regret going but if I didn’t, well, part of me would always wonder.
This is how I’m starting to feel about my marathon aspirations. I admit it. I’m nervous. Not sure if I’ll be able to do it. What if it takes me 10 hours? There’s no way I can run 26 miles!?! What if, God forbid, I FAIL?
How many times has FEAR (or low self-esteem because of your body image) prevented you from getting, doing, trying what you really want to try? I know, I’ve done it, a lot. Especially in my "younger days". Now I climb mountains, run races, record videos (was really scared to try) and go on casting calls! All because I just DID it.
One life, one body, that’s all I have. One day I want to be an old women sharing all her stories and life experiences. Not a depressed bitter person who is disappointed that she didn’t, at least, try. Trying is what gives me all the good adventures anyway! :~)
