If Not Now, Then When?

You know all those things you want to do? Have talked about doing? Wished you could muster the courage to do? Hoped you'd get to do one day?

You should go do them. 

We don't always get the chance to do the things we plan on doing. 
You have a fight with someone and you let it linger. You think, one day, we'll reconnect.

 You put off that dream trip. It's just not the right time.

You want to do something crazy - like get a tattoo, or dye your hair lavender, but you're worried about what people will think.   

You want to start dating again or you know you're not happy in your current relationship. You tell yourself, I don't have space in my life for this stress right now. I'm not ready. 

Life is short. And sometimes we don't get the chance to say the words we want to say. Or do the things we want to do. 

This is really important for those of us are focusing on a healthy lifestyle. "Healthy" doesn't mean restrictive. It doesn't mean always saying no to happy hour or birthday dinners or a glass of wine with your best friend. Including that happiness is such an important part of being healthy, too. 

So, this weekend - make sure you say yes. Make sure you call that old friend and say you're sorry. Make sure you hug your mom and spend the extra 10 minutes snuggling with your furry family. At the end of the day, at the end of your life, that's not what you're going to regret doing. 

xo, Katie
