Andover MN Chiropractor Says Do it Now

Chiropractic Andover MN Heart Hands

I feel I need to share this with you. It's personal, and it may or may not have affected my focus in the office over the last week. If it has, I sincerely apologize. Last Thursday I said my final good-bye to a friend in Andover MN.

His name was Armando. He was a gigantic man (solid muscle) with a giant smile and an even bigger heart. He was a bodybuilder and a personal trainer- always ready and willing to give advice.


I met Armando 13 years ago at Lifetime Fitness. He was the first bodybuilder I'd ever met, and he left a huge impression on me. We lost touch after I moved away to college, but we reunited backstage at a bodybuilding show last year. He invited me down to Burnsville to train with him at his new gym, Southside Athletic.

I left that day excited about our renewed friendship and the chance to train with the guy who started it all. We talked on the phone, chatted on Facebook, and exchanged a bunch of emails. We talked about training together, but we never scheduled it. Our friendship grew, but I never got down to Southside Athletic. Then last Sunday I got the news that Armando had passed away. His funeral was last Thursday.

Don't Wait In Andover MN

Yes, this is a terrible thing. And yes, I regret not taking the time to train with my buddy. I will never get that chance again, which is why I'm sharing this story with you. Is there something you've been putting off for far too long? Maybe it's a meal with your family, or coffee with a friend, or a date with your spouse, or a play day with your kids. Perhaps there's someone you've been meaning to call or a note of appreciation you've yet to send. Whatever it is for you, I beg you to do it. Do it now. Schedule it. If you don't, it may never happen. Our time on this earth is a precious gift. Fill it with great stories.
