A woman told me about someone who had a heart attack and was told to change their diet. They said they didn't want to, a few months later they were dead. Now his grandkids will have to grow up without their grandad. She was angry about the choice he had made.
She said, "You can have cake or you can live, what do you want?"
It's true. We are making choices and negotiating on what we are prepared to do. I know I often let myself off the hook - "I've had a bad day/good day/ busy day/ etc so I deserve to have .."
We so often act as if we have all the time in the world, then for some, suddenly crunch time comes. Will you wish you dealt with the problem before it was too late?
