Do it for Tomorrow


I’ve felt lazy the last few days. I didn’t want to work out, not even to get my ten thousand steps. What’s the point?


The point is, if I don’t work out today, there will be a day I don’t wake up, when it will be too late to kick myself in the ass and do some physical maintenance. That day will come too soon, regardless, but it will be way too soon if I don’t take care of the meat carcass housing my creative soul.


One day, I’m going to transcend this meat carcass, and I’m going to wish I had fingers to type all of the stories my soul wants to tell.

The days I don’t write, I definitely have to work out, or the guilt is unbearable.

Granted, the guilt is probably what will kill me.


I don’t just work out for tomorrow. I write for tomorrow. I’m an advocate for tomorrow. I’m doing what I can today so people won’t face my same struggles when I’m gone.

That’s what keeps me going. I may have pissed away today, but I’m going to do better tomorrow. I try to do my best every day. I hope by sharing my struggle, you now have some energy to do something for tomorrow, too.
