Getting Old?

Getting old isn’t a burden, it’s a huge responsibility. It’s also a gift.

It’s hard as heck to stay healthy. You’d never guess by looking at me, but I have to work incredibly hard to stay healthy. My very life literally depends on it.

For some, it’s “impossible”, because that’s the choice they’ve made, to believe it is impossible.

Christopher Reeves wrote several books, one entitled, “Nothing Is Impossible“.

In my work, I was blessed to spend time with him and his family.

I can’t help but wonder what he would have paid to do what you (most of us anyway) and I did this morning. Wake up. Throw the blankets aside. Stand up. Walk to the bathroom. Bend over and brush our teeth. Etc.

What would Christopher have paid to do that?

One million dollars?

Five million?

$50,000,000?

We got it for free? At least that’s what I think.

If you think you can, or you think you can not, you are right.

It’s all about choices. Tough choices. Life-altering choices. Easy choices and hard choices. At least that’s what I think.

Hope you get time soon to think about your choices. If you don’t decide, who will? If not now, when? The people who love you are watching. This scares the heck out of me. Carpe diem, jeff 🙂
