Have you ever wondered if you’re a passenger in your own life? Do you think about things that affect you? Do you really think about them? Are you a ‘SHEOPLE’ or are you someone who makes your own choices?
I have noticed that people will often say to me that they have to do this or that, that their doctor told them they had to do this or that. Maybe? Maybe not? Really, it’s a choice. It’s your life. It’s your responsibility. Stop passing the buck. Stop giving someone else the power to make your choices for you. Lifestyle choices you make today will determine your level of health and well-being as you grow older. The better the choices you make now, the better your health and well-being will be in the future.
In the 1950’s, cigarette smoking was promoted for throat irritation and anxiety. Supposedly there was medical research to support the claims.
In the 1960’s, thalidomide was given to pregnant women to reduce stress and morning sickness. Many thousands of babies were born with disfigured limbs before thalidomide was banned.
In the 1970’s, the vaccine for swine flu was the ‘only chance’ to avoid the coming swine flu epidemic. When the vaccine harmed more people than the flu, the vaccine was ditched.
In the 1980’s, eggs were a factor in high cholesterol. Now they are considered to be a meal in a shell.
In the 1990’s, researchers told us that Vioxx was the answer to arthritic pain. It’s side effects (heart damage) were responsible for 60 thousand deaths.
Research is now suggesting that some items with the ‘Healthy Heart Tick’, and foods that are low in fat, may not be good for our health and well-being. Remember, every food stuff that has been banned by the food and drug authority was once approved by the same authority.
Don’t be a passenger in your own life. Don’t believe everything you’re told. Examine the information and make up your own mind. Take responsibility for your own life, health, and well-being. In reality you should care more about yourself than anyone else. Be accountable to yourself. At the end of the day, and at the end of your life, the choices you make will determine the life and health you have.
GET OFF THE BUS! STOP BEING A PASSENGER. REMEMBER IT’S YOUR CHOICE.
YOUR FUTURE HEALTH DEPENDS ON THE CHOICES YOU MAKE TODAY!
