When Will You Fight?

A loved one is dying. They’re close, it could be weeks or months. My family members say, “They’re a  fighter.” I thought, well when will you fight?

Do you plan on fighting when you’re near death, lungs full of tar, 50 pounds of body fat slowing your heart down? Will you fight then? Or will you fight now?

I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but I know today I’m fighting.

I’m staying in my 1,500-2,000 calorie range until I get rid of more of this body fat. I’m staying away from junk food, alcohol, and cigarettes. I don’t want to be laid up, in pain, because I didn’t fight when the time was right.

A neighbor of mine died some time ago, he was in his 80s but the day before he died he was building a fence. An old man, building a fence, passed away in his sleep the next day. No pain, no suffering, no fighting.

I get to choose my actions today, so I’ll choose to do the things that get me closer to what I want.
