always apathetic me, but this is a day to change. to paraphrase some thoughts lately: it not now, then when?

and above all I think it's time to "man up, ladybug" and start behaving like a responsible adult - a person who is mindful with health, mindful with exercise, mindful with expenditure. I want this to be a turning point for me at what is (let's be realistic) is probably the halfway point of my life: a point I look back on and realise that this is the year that I got it. the year I finally realised that NOW is the time to be healthy, NOW is the time to be fit, NOW is the time to look around at the things I have (literally and metaphorically) and be god damn grateful for every last bit of it.
none of this is profound; none of it ground breaking; nothing original. but it's important to me, now more than ever.
