Many times people may think that because of their age or because they have an illness that it is too late for them to eat right or to start exercising or to be the person that they want to be. It breaks my heart when someone thinks that because they are diabetic or because they have an illness that they can just continue their unhealthy lifestyle because in their mind they are thinking what’s the use if they are already sick. Because they are “old” (I write old in quotation marks because really, what is old if you are as old as you feel?! Even 50 is still young nowadays!) that it is too late to go back to school or do anything they want. Well, I believe it’s never too late to be healthy, never too late to exercise, never too late to learn better ways of living, it’s never too late to eat right, never too late to be the person you want to be.
I’m a strong believer that if we want to change our life for the better, now is the perfect time to do it. Not later, not tomorrow, not in a week. NOW! Because if you wait till later, if you wait till tomorrow, you will never do what it is that you want to do. You will never make the changes that you want to make. You will just keep waiting and waiting because there will always be a tomorrow. This is why I believe that the moment to act is now. So what if now means that you are 30 or 40 or 50 or 60. As long as there is life, there is hope, like we say in Spanish. Especially when it comes to eating right and exercising it is never too late. So what if you have an illness, you can actually help your body heal FASTER by eating right. And I also believe we don’t have to wait to be sick in order to take care of our bodies.
It is never too late to do anything you need to do to have a better life nor is it too late for you to be the person you want to be. It’s just a matter of taking the necessary steps now, not later, in order for you to be and do what you want. If you can remember that as long as there is life, there is hope, you will see how it truly is never too late for anything.
