Yes, the irony is that what you are today is because of the actions you have taken in the past. However, that is not to say that you are the same today as you were in the past. It can be different. Or it could very well be the same. That choice lies in your hand. If you are going to choose to be the same now as you were in the past, that is your right and likewise if you want to change. The problem with most people is that they often resign themselves to who they were in the past that they close off the possibility to change and be someone that they have always wanted to become. People need to realise that you create your own reality. The present that you are in is a result of the decisions that you have made, not so much the circumstances. So if you want a better life, body or mind, make different choices from before. Do the things that you “hate” to do. You cannot just hope and dream and expect things to change. That will not get you anywhere. Choices and actions do.
