Living a Better Life

Some time ago, I came to the realization that over the past few years, my life had become a series of “one day I woulds…”

One day I would exercise and stick to it…

One day I would lose weight…

One day I would go white water rafting…

One day…

I took an extended break from social media – got rid of Twitter, Instagram, and signed out of Facebook for several months. It was liberating. I rediscovered reading. I cooked fresh flounder over a campfire and I hiked in the Adirondacks. I taught myself how to make sourdough bread.

I’ve committed myself to living in such a way that when I’m old, I won’t look back with regret.

My better life is a journey not a destination. It’s about the things I learn and do along the way.
