Life is Filled with Hard Choices
Each year of our life brings new choices. We have discovered that choices are better when we live our lives in such a way that we GET to choose rather than HAVE to choose.Let me explain.
When we take care of our bodies by the food we put into them and the exercise we put them through we may make the following choices. Stay in our home or if we desire, move to a place where we have more of what we want.
- A better view.
- A place to grow
- A forest to love
- A place to raise animals
- A different house
If with each year we have not chosen to eat well, been sedentary and developed disease we HAVE to decide between other choices. We choose whether we are healthy enough to STAY in our home or if we NEED to move to another place. The other place may be:
- An Independent Living community
- An Assisted Living
- A Nursing Home
- Have in-home care come to us.
When we don’t make the choices to take care of our bodies, other choices are made for us.
Easy choices – What do I want to do with the rest of my life?
Hard choices – Where do I have to go to live out my days?
Before I get in trouble for being insensitive to people who are already ill or who had no choice to go into a home remember two things:
1. I have worked with seniors for many years.My heart is with them. There are loving people who care for others in these varying living situations. I have also seen many people regenerate their bodies and move out.
2. If you have an illness already, it is not too late. You can regenerate your body.
We did. Three other people talked about their success in the comment sections of our YouTube Channel this week. We now have a testimonial page on our website. These are not testimonials about us but about eating right and making changes.
When your doctor gives you a medication, you most generally take it and you should, but do your research. We are not telling you to stop taking a medication. But, are you also willing to change your diet and stop eating processed food? Are you willing to exercise?
The choice is yours. Life is full of hard choices.
