I'm not quitting this time

I've had enough of starting an not finishing. Watching others participate, existing instead of living. I want to be fit so I can do the things I love - gardening, playing with (future) grandkids, sports - without having to stop and rest all the time.

It will be a loooooooog time before you see me strike up the courage to vlog. I know I appear to be so outgoing...and I am...but somewhere inside me...I still have a slight shyness. DON'T LAUGH...it's true. SHUT UP ALREADY! AND ummmmm...not those dances today but I think I might have to put a name to what I did do so people recognize it as the real deal..lol

***---***THE PARADOX OF OUR TIMES***---***

Is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints
We spend more, but we have less.
We have bigger houses, but smaller families
More conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees, but less sense
More knowledge, but less judgement
More experts, but more problems
More medicines, but less wellness.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often
We have learnt how to make a living, but not a life.
We have added years to life, but not life to years.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back
But have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.
We have conquered outer space, but not inner space.
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted our soul.
We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We’ve higher incomes, but lower morals.
We’ve become long on quantity but short on quality.
These are the times of tall men, and short character;
Steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare,
More leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.
These are the days of two incomes, but more divorces;
Of fancier houses, but broken homes.
It is a time when there is much in the show window, and nothing in the stockroom.
A time when technology can bring this letter to you,
And a time when you can choose,
Either to make a difference …. or just hit, delete.
