So I turned 35. When I was a kid I used to think that 70 was the max age I wanted to live to. And today I still feel the same! I know – this seems like a morbid post :(. So 35 is definitely the life midway point for me. A self appointed “halfway there”. There are so many things I still want to do. I have not yet changed the world. And miles to go before I sleep. So here is my unofficial to do list for 35 –
- Learn to “really” swim. As in Diana Nyad proportions of swimming!
- Smile. A lot.
- Get healthy.
- Start a business.
Good news – doing great on my healthy-no-processed-food eating plan. Bad news – I forget to take photos of what I am eating for the blog :( Does this ever happen to you when you have all the intentions to do the right stuff and somehow it just never gets done?
I feel like that has been the story of my life lately. I lost a dear friend today and it made me realize that all the times I promised myself to “call her tomorrow” were wasted opportunities. Now I will never get a chance to “call her tomorrow”. It’s such a cliche but a life moment like that does help put things in perspective. We are always looking forward to doing things in the future that we forget to live in the present. Live today. Hug someone. Love.
It’s time I take control of my health. This is it. I have said this a few times before but I think having this blog would help. Although it sounds super boring but since I don’t have dedicated blog readers (yet!) I can do this. I am not going to turn this blog into a food blog but I am going to take photos of everything I eat and post them on the blog. So good luck to me. Not doing it for food shaming. I think that taking photos of things I eat might help me subconsciously choose healthier options.
So here goes nothing. Fingers crossed!
