Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Zumba classes are known to be one of the most convenient and effective forms to lose weight. Zumba is known to be a method that allows you to exercise without actually making your mind truly ready for the gym. It is more like a dance class but has all sorts of muscle strengthening exercises included in the process.

These types of classes are known to exceptionally increase your stamina and improve your health in ways you could not have even imagined. If you have ever visited a Zumba class you would know that the class feels more like a Saturday night club. If you like nightclubs this type of exercise is for you. The most astonishing fact about Zumba is that it is a full-body workout. Once you start with Zumba, you will not be intentionally focusing on any specific part of your body but will exercise as a whole.

Moreover, the music played in Zumba classes is usually high paced so once you get the hang of it, you are more likely to build endurance. Research has shown that people who practice Zumba have much improved and better health care than people who perform other forms of exercise. Research has shown that Zumba is extremely effective to improve your aerobic activity. Moreover, the process will help you get out of your comfort zone if you are an introvert. Dancing with multiple people in a room can be so much fun.

However, it is important to note that whatever exercise you do, it is important that you discipline yourself. You will have to form a routine yourself and make sure that you actually stay persistent towards it. The easiest way to do so is to give your body a treat after every Zumba session. It could be a massage or a mani-pedi session.
