It has been my observation over the last several decades that people in this country seem to define themselves by their ill health.
Conversations surrounding our personal health issues in social settings are about as common as small talk about the weather. Seemingly harmless, but for me it reveals something a little more...
Some of us like to have a chronic illness and somehow once there is a name attached to it, it gives credibility.
We are the only ones that have the ability to truly take care of ourselves because everywhere we go...there we are.
If we take care of ourselves, then we take our power back...plain and simple.
What if we lived in a place and time where we didn't discuss our ill health as if it were a badge of honor.
Small talk about upcoming medical procedures and tests, cholesterol, blood pressure and A1C numbers would be replaced with healthy recipes, how many miles we walked or cycled and how we slept like a baby then woke up refreshed, ready to face the day.
Imagine the butterfly effect it would have on our society raising the bar to become the best version of ourselves in order to carry out our lives?
