Your Time Is Limited: Why Your Health Is More Important Than You Think

This post is different than anything that I usually write but I felt it needed to be written. Thank you for reading.

Your time is limited
I’ve been thinking a lot about life lately. Or rather the end of life. It’s something that you’ve probably never really thought about. Truthfully, I’m sure all of us avoid even thinking about it.

But I do.

I have had a couple people in my life who have lost a mom in the past month. I’ve had friends who have had to undergo surgery.

It’s a scary thing to think that we are only promised the present moment. We could go at any time. I know it’s a morbid thought but it’s a thought you should have.

I only say these things to get to a bigger topic. Do you prioritize your health?

Just think about how many people are dependent on pills and procedures to live comfortably. Your life is sustained with medicine.

Could any of these things be avoided? Can we live a better life if we were preventative about our own health? Or do we live like we will live forever?

Never giving any thoughts to what we do to our own health. Neglecting it for years.

Companies make billions of dollars off the well being of others. Could any of those health issues be reversed?

I know I’m only one small voice but I know my time here on Earth is limited. I prioritize my health over everything else.

Is it selfish? Maybe. But I want to get as much quality of life as I am able to. I don’t want to be dependent on medicines and procedures to have a good quality of life.

I just celebrated my first Father’s Day on Sunday.

I never thought that I would be a dad. I was afraid to bring a child into this sometimes dark world that we live in. I never knew if we would be be able to have a child.

But we did. And my life has been forever changed since.

I want to be able to spend as many years as I can watching her grow up. I want to spend as much time with my wife as possible. So, I take time out of my day to make sure my health is in top shape.

I know I have work to do.

I want my daughter to see me as someone who is physically fit. I want to play with her. Travel with her. Experience different cultures with her.

I just want to raise a positive and kind human being.

Again, maybe that’s selfish, but I want her to see that being healthy is her choice. Her priority.

Your time is limited.

I want her to have the best quality of life. And I want her to have as much life with me and her mother as possible.

Every day, I will make my health more important than anything else. In a way, I’m teaching her how her health should be important to her as well.
