A Huge Goal

Working (playing) in my garden this afternoon, I had this thought: what if I decided to get into my best possible condition by the time I turn 60 next January 8?
Physically, mentally, and most important, in appearance. This would involve more vegetables, more exercise, no caffeine, and two or three other tricky things. I don't know. I continue to ponder. Could be it would just be a narcissistic waste of time. On the other hand, I might live longer. And other nice rewards. If I do it, I'll be gathering a group of like-goaled people. Don't want to attempt this one alone.

If doing this will make you happy, I say "Go for it!", but if it is going to make you feel miserable, then don't waste your precious time. We have to set realistic goals for ourselves, otherwise, we can end up making ourselves crazy.

Good thoughts. I'm not sure at all that it's worth the effort. The effort being switching from candy to carrots.

Maybe being happy is better for the health than doing healthy things. It's possible there's a grain of truth in that.

I say, enjoy the candy, but throw in a few carrots, every now and then! Balance is important.

Oh, well, maybe...
