Daily Prompt: Forever Young
If there were a real Fountain of Youth, would you drink the water?
It’s funny that you should say that, i was looking for something on Facebook and came across the above photo taken on 16th December 2011, so i took another on 16th December 2012 just to see how much i had changed, and yes i had. But grief, a house move and all of the other in between crap will do that to a person.
Being on the top of the almost 40 hill and looking across to whats ahead, if it took the constant back pain and headaches away i would in a heartbeat. If there was a chance that the double chin and the pregnant for 11 years look could vanish of course i would. I would love to feel fitter in heart, head and body.
If i could go back in time hell yeah i would drink the water, and take better care of my self. my body, hair, teeth, back, eyes, everything. I wouldn’t give up the great memories, but i would have taken the time to listen to those now gone.
But since i can’t i need to take steps in 2013 to get myself fitter, not just for me but for my family. So drinking water will be the number 1 key to finding that fountain of youth. 2. will be getting off the couch and doing something.
So that on the 16th December 2013 i can take another photo and look at how far i have come.
So Raise Your Glass and Try.
