I don’t think of this as a START, because a START has a FINISH.

How true are those words. Look at when I "started" training for the Nike Women's Marathon - I was in the best shape of my life. Then the injury happened, the finish line disappeared and I stopped. Then there was the Triathlons. While I might not of been in a peak shape, there was the start of training and when I crossed the finish line, the training ended.
Is your life a series of Starts & Finishes? Do you Start to lose weight today? What happens when you "Finish" your journey or something causes the Finish line to disappear? I know that I cannot be alone in the blurred Finish line.
So there is no more tomorrow I start, next week I start. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. If I truly need a finish line - then I suppose the finish line shall be the last day of my life. The bright side is that I don't know when that day will come. So, until then, I need to keep trudging ahead and realize that I will make mistakes along the way, will have set backs along the way and just need to dust myself off and get moving and focus on what I want in life.
Of course, I say this and realize that step one would be to eat healthy, exercise, and focus on pushing through the debt. I can eat healthy the rest of the day! That is an easy one. Now, for exercise - it has to wait until tomorrow. I have to work today at Lowe's so no extra time for exercise. The debt - well I am working both jobs today - so getting rid of it I will!
Even though I will have no more starts or finishes, I am starting my count down today....25 days. Yep, 25 days until my next day off. I always try to get a day off scheduled where I do nothing and some how I just didn't get that done this month like I should of. So, when it is said and done with, I will have worked one or both jobs for 35 days straight. I picked up an extra shift yesterday at Lowe's and lets just say leaving at 7 am and getting home at 10:30 at night three days in a row makes for a tired cookie!
