A Letter to MYSELF
Sunday, March 19, 2017
On March 25, you will turn 58 years young.
Just this past week, you were presented with a couple of major wake up calls. Your knee will need immediate attention in order to do the things you love the most. Use your knee brace and crutches and pray for ANSWERS when you complete your MRI.
Also this week your were rushed to the emergency room for your first experience with High Blood Pressure. The silent killer could have killed you. Throwing up and passing out due to high blood pressure was a wake up call wasn't it? You are now on medication for life. Don't take this lightly.
Your car had to be towed due to something falling off of it in the middle of the street. Don't sweat it. It is a CAR not your life.
You are purchasing your very first Fixer Upper Home. Instead of getting some sort of exercise you spent every minute on the computer dreaming of the remodel. How did that work out for you? Sitting too long, not getting outside, not moving......leads to depression.
Make yourself a priority in your own life. Slow down. Stay active. Eat healthy. Limit sodium and cocktails. Use the tools and the support readily available to you each day to promote your well being and health. Your family loves you. Your twins are grown and want you to be around for weddings and grandchildren. Your friends love you unconditionally. Be there for them just as they have been there for you.
You got it?
Thanks for writing your letter to yourself. This is better than any "selfie" you could ever take with a camera. Live long, stay strong, be happy and get moving.
