Who do you choose to be today?

There's a new website I love that is called Nerd Fitness. It has some great articles and is really inspirational!

One of the latest ones talks about how we all need to learn from our mistakes, move on from them and become who we want to be right now. Because it's all up to us. I love that. Here's a great quote from the writer, Steve Kamb: 

"Who cares who you were last year?  Who cares what you did last month?  Hell, who cares how you acted yesterday?  It has absolutely nothing to do with who you CHOOSE to be today.  That choice is 100% yours."

Isn't that great? We all have complete control over the person we want to be from now on. We can't change or do anything about the past. All we can do is focus on right now. Today. What are you going to do today to make yourself better than yesterday?

I can't change the fact that I wasted at least a month and decided to gain weight instead of losing, but I can change what happens this month and next month and so on! So who cares about last month. It has nothing to do with today. Or tomorrow. I choose what happens in my life, so I choose to stay on track and keep working towards my goals!

Well, nevertheless the things you did (and experienced) in the past have helped shape you into who you are today...

What a very encouraging post for me to read. I've wasted more than just a month (try almost a whole year) and have gained weight back. Ugh! I need to get my butt back in gear and am ready to do so. Thanks for your post today. Perfect for me!

This is a constant struggle for me. I get in this doomed to fail mindset. But today I choose to be failure free!

Thanks for sharing this. We can change things around in a heartbeat--we just have to choose to do it!
