Every single moment is another chance to start fresh. You don't have to wait until the morning, or Monday, or the first of the month. If you've strayed, right this moment is the perfect time to get back on track. It keeps me optimistic that even if I mess up, I can ALWAYS start over. Always.

Tracking for me has been the secret to succesful weight loss. No guessing at ounces or tsp or etc. I measure every single item before I eat or drink it. Every single item, every single time. That keeps me mindful of portion sizes, helps me to make sure I am balancing my diet with appr. amounts of carbs, proteins and fats. Each are vital to losing weight but in the right proportions.
No one likes to think of their own end, but it is inevitable. I often hear people talk about how they are too busy to do the things they'd like to do. Remember a couple of things- 1) No one was ever on their deathbed wishing they spent more time at work or cleaning the house. 2) Never feel you are indispensable. Go to any graveyard, I would imagine that there are people there who thought the very same about themselves... yet, the world kept turning, society didn't collapse. Live, laugh, love.
Many culture don't look at death with dread, they are aware of it and live every moment as if it were their last.
