Does it ever make you wonder why we are so hard on our bodies? I mean we all know if we treat ourselves in a healthier manner we will be healthier for our efforts. Yet we seem to almost be of the mind set that bad things do not happen to me. The crazy thing is when we are in a situation when we are already fighting for our health and suffering with health related issues, and promising to be better we seem to really mean change is imperative. So we promise and pray that if we can just get through this event we will make a change. But in the end, once we are lucky enough to get through the crisis we revert to old habits and vices, and are still not motivated enough to make a positive change.
I actually have thought about this conundrum many times over the years, and I have yet to figure it out. Another thing that I am still pondering is when someone is lucky enough to beat a disease or heal from a tragedy, even when the odds were against them, and they still do not make the necessary life changes. I am starting to think that maybe we have lost the idea in our mind of what health is all about. Maybe we have also lost touch with how valuable our health is, and how devastating it is to lose it.
All I can do is hope we all start appreciating our health when we have it, doing everything we can to get it back if we lose it, and then hold on tight to never lose it again!
