Zero to Sixty

The thing about choosing to live is that there is just SO MUCH TO DO. Getting older doesn't help, given all the accompanying aches and pains. There is a joke that goes something like this... when I was young all I wanted to do on the weekend was party, now I just want a good night's sleep. The trap that I need to avoid is the "coulda woulda shoulda" lure. I could do this, would do that, and should do it all. While this mantra can be motivating, it can also dispirit a person who just wants to move forward and be productive. The answer? I'm not sure.
