I Will Start Tomorrow…

The Saddest Story of All

There is a monumental difference between wanting to and trying to change.

I will be better tomorrow…. what a lovely concept and everyone around you will root for you, congratulate you and cheer you on.

The problem with the wanting to change phase is that tomorrow comes and goes, but you do not change.

Its just one more day right? You will be better tomorrow.

Changes should commence at the beginning of the week, month, year, hell, maybe even decade for some people, so you tuck away your desire to change for a more ‘appropriate’ time.

The leaves turn and fall. The snow will come and go. Birthdays, holidays and events, good and bad, will all happen, but the wanting to change never turned into the trying to change.

Then, finally, one day you will wake up, look in the mirror and decide that it is simply too late to start the change you wanted.

You accept defeat and decide that that better life was not meant for you.
