Food for thought, Healthy Lifestyle

My wish for you

For a very long time I have been on a quest to have a healthy lifestyle. That journey has been very interesting, and with many bumps in the road.

Along the way, I have met many new friends who also want to be healthy. Some are having more success than others. Some have challenges that seem insurmountable but they keep searching for answers and progress is slow, or even undetectable at times.

What I love about these friends of like mind is that we encourage each other. We teach each other and help each other. We are a “tribe” and we stick together and look for others who want to join us in the journey!

I also have met people who don’t care about their health, or at least it seems that way. They take it for granted, assuming they are immune to the ills of others around them. Perhaps they are misinformed, or uninformed about the impact of how daily choices affect their health. Maybe they trust information that is wrong. Maybe they have addictions they don’t have the strength to overcome. Maybe they just feel they have no choices or fate is stacked against them.

I especially grieve over those who get caught up in the latest “rage” – some new fun product that they fall in love with. They haven’t thoroughly researched to discover ALL the ingredients, many that are not listed on the label, and therefore they don’t know they are slowly killing themselves or their loved ones.

These are the friends my heart cries over. I want so much the very best for them. I want to reach out to them and shake them and tell them, “Do you know what’s in that? Do you know what it’s doing to your body?” Then when they suddenly have a mystery illness or collapse of their health, they are confused. They search for answers but haven’t collected the knowledge or skills to cope.

Sometimes, they reach out to me with questions. As if I can suddenly make it all better. NO, I can’t make you well, and I am not your doctor. I care and I want the best for you. But you must find the answers now before it’s too late. Sure, I can point to resources but you must do the work yourself. It’s your journey, not mine.

Maybe you think it costs too much to be healthy or get healthy. Well, I know first-hand that it costs a whole lot more to get healthy than it does to stay healthy while you are still healthy.

Why am I on this rant? Because I care. I wish for you that you will NEVER have to look back and say, “If I had only known. Why didn’t you tell me. Why didn’t I listen.” So I continue to do everything I can to educate. I do everything I can to share the new things I learn so that you don’t have to go where I have been – sick and in pain and fighting my way back to vitality I once had.

Maybe you think I am just trying to sell you something. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you only knew how many tears I cry over you, and how much I care, and how much I want to help you.

What journey are you on? My wish for you is that you be healthy and happy. Please reach out to me and let’s be friends. Let’s share this journey together. You can contact me through my website.
