This one brought a tear to my eye. When I think about my age, weight, blood sugar etc., I sometimes think I want to live to meet my grandkids. Living has multiple meanings, however taking active measures today to bring me closer to the physical capabilities I need to live my way 20 years from now is what matters.
The outcomes are less important than the process. I may fail, no matter how hard I try. It is not a sacrifice today. It is a joy today that will pay dividends in the future.
