Change Your Life – Today is the Day

Really?  YES – adamantly, YES!  You have to start sometime.  Why not right now?  My best friend’s mother (who was younger than me), had a stroke, and died within the week.  It can happen.  It does happen.

I am definitely not a doom and gloom person, but the only time we have is this moment, and the only one who can change your life is YOU!  Whatever the change you want is that you want to do -  to loose weight, move, look for a new job, break up with someone, or just to call a friend to visit….there is no better time than the present.

Small increments.  Just begin.  Take a breath and consider, this may be the very best time, the only time, you are allotted to do something you’ve been putting off “until time permits”.  There is no guarantee time will permit anything, so prioritize quickly and get started.

Consider what is the most important in your life – hug your child?  or finish vacuuming the living room?  Everything will get done in it’s own time – or not!

Don’t make the mistake of NOT doing or saying something that should be done or said.  Begin that weight loss right now by drinking a big glass of iced water.  It fills you up and actually burns more calories than lukewarm water!

Call someone out of the clear blue just to say, “I love you”.  If you are busy, just say, “Can’t talk, just wanted you to know!”

I’ve been applying the principle of DO IT NOW, and I have to tell you, it works like magic, and makes you feel better almost immediately.  Do something, and then give yourself a big hug!

God bless.


About Marsha

Marsha J. O'Brien, after a twenty-five year career as a personal trainer and health consultant, decided over ten years ago to dedicate her time to writing and publishing, and photography. In addition to her career in the field of teaching sound health of mind, body, and spirit, she specialized in stress management and relaxation techniques. She has been a contributor for several magazines, was an instructor for community college, and produced thirteen one-hour television programs for access television. When asked what first drew her to prose, she said she loved being able to express her experience and soul on the projects she creates. She cited a former English teacher, Mrs. Sloane, as one of the major writing influences in her life: "She told me to keep writing, but my finest writing would come after I had experienced life". Marsha is passionate about her writing, and endeavors to include within much of it, life lessons, with positive outcomes and insights. This last year Marsha had a severe spinal cord injury, and is applying all the techniques she taught to her own healing. She hopes soon to be hiking with her husband and dog, and playing with her eight grandchildren. She credits prayer, and God with her progress. She continues to write, and to post on her websites, as often as time allows: and If you would like to contact Marsha email:
