In what has been a difficult week for us as a country as a whole, I wanted to share a lesson I have learned.
Firstly it would be remiss of me not to pass on my condolenses to the victims who lost their lives, their families and everyone caught up in the tragic events in Manchester on Monday evening. Innocent people on a night at a concert, caught up in a deplorable act on our great country for what gain, Nothing. A tragic loss of life from Young Children to Parents. You will not be forgotten. RIP x
Events like this put into perspective what life is about and how precious it is. How do we act from this point forward. Do I not let my daughters go to a concert again? Do I even let Lucy out the house? Do we not get on the plane for our summer holidays. Of course we do because we can’t let these (I was going to use the word people, but they are not people) losers (in the words of Donald Trump) win.
When it comes to your life, the bottom line is that you have to cherish every moment. Respect life for what it is and live to regret nothing. Try everything and never turn down any opportunity. Primarily,. Be happy. Tall, short, fat, thin be happy and grateful for what you have as there are others who would trade everything to be alive or to have loved ones still alive. Respect life and respect the lives of others.
And there is my point. I am training day in day out trying to lose weight. I am honestly trying my best but it is not happening as quickly as I want it to. This was really starting to bug me. But, in reality, what is the problem. I am getting fitter, technology tells me I am getting fitter. I have no underlying health problems, I have a great Wife, Family and job. Why am I getting down over carrying a few extra pounds.
I need to be happy with who and what I am. I am happy inside. I could train for a million years and I will never be medically thin.
I could go through my whole life trying and not enjoying myself on this endless pursuit of being thin, but everything could be taken away from me tomorrow. Then I would live with regrets.
Having said all this I have no intention of stopping what I am doing or going out to eat 10 McDonalds and a pizza. I will continue training as I actually quite enjoy it and I am getting fit (If Not Thin).
So the message for today is a simple one. Live life and enjoy it, Regret nothing.
Enjoy the Bank Holiday whatever you are doing
Until Next time…
