When you first read this title your first thought may be, “My heart is in my chest”. While this is technically correct I’d like to take it to a much deeper level by asking you to think about the following questions. What is your purpose here on this planet called earth? What is your passion? What is gratifying to your soul? What do you love to do? What inspires you? What do you spend your time thinking about?
Imagine what it would be like to wake up every morning ready to jump out of bed and get the day going. You love what you do for a living. In fact, you love it so much you could do it seven days a week.
What if you inherited or won millions of dollars in the Lottery? What would you do with your life? Would you quit your job? Would you start the business of your dreams? If you own a business would you sell it? Or would you invest more money into it to grow it and make it the very best?
I challenge you to examine your life right now. Are you happy doing what you are doing? What are some goals and dreams that you never pursued because life got in the way? Where is your heart? What inspires you? Do you have a book inside you that you always wanted to write? Is there a career that you really wanted to pursue but instead you followed in your parents footsteps? Or did you pursue your parent’s dreams instead of your own?
I was thirty years of age when I enrolled in Chiropractic School. One of my classmates, Gary, was forty when he enrolled. He was a cattle rancher in Montana whose wife could not get pregnant even after seeing several fertility specialists. It wasn’t until his family doctor recommended they see a spine specialist. Gary stated that his wife did not have any spinal problems but their family doctor insisted. Gary’s wife received Chiropractic adjustments from the Chiropractic spine specialist and she was able to finally get pregnant. It changed their lives and Gary decided to become a spine specialist himself.
Life is too short to not live a happy and fulfilled life. When was the last time you experienced real joy? How could you create more joy in your life? What makes you happy?
There is a special place in the world for each and every one of us. Reach into your heart and search for that place if you have not already found it. Use your God given strengths and talents to be the best that you can possibly be. Give the world your very best. Listen to and live through your heart. It is never too late to make a few changes. Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Better late than never!
We use it every time we get out of bed. We use it every time we go to work. We use it every time we pick up the phone. We use it every time we do anything. We use it everyday. Do you know what the greatest power is? Did you know that each and everyone of us have that power? What is it? It is the power to CHOOSE.
Think about this for a minute. Each day when you wake up you may feel like you have to go to work. Most people do have a job and go to work. But I learned a long time ago that going to work is a choice. In fact, everything in life is a choice. We may feel like we have to go to work but it really is a choice. You could choose to not go to work and not make any money. It’s obviously a better choice to go to work than not, but it’s still a choice.
And just like it’s a choice to go to work we can choose what kind of attitude we’re going to have today and everyday. We can choose to be happy or grumpy. We can choose to be upset or get angry if things don’t go our way or we can choose to look at problems as opportunities to learn from. From the moment we wake up the only thing we have to do is make choices. We choose what we’re gong to wear that day, who we hang out with, what we eat, who we accept phone calls from and the list goes on and on.
We have the power to choose so many things that affect our lives. What’s amazing is that there are hundreds of doctors across the United States that acknowledge the majority of what people get sick from and most eventually die are from lifestyle choices. These are the things you choose to eat and drink everyday. I have taught my kids from very early on that for example candy, soda, snack foods taste good but are not good for you. The less you eat or drink of these the better your health will be. I just read about a three year old little girl that started having ear pain and the pediatrician thought it was an ear infection. After a couple of months and different anti-biotics this little girl developed several other symptoms. At one point she became seriously ill and was hospitalized for eight weeks. She had Cat Scans, MRI’s, spinal taps, blood work, urinalysis, and was put on many different prescription drugs. Her parents incurred $30,000 in medical bills and the doctors still did not have a definite diagnosis. You can read the whole amazing story at Dr Janet Hull’s website www.askdrhull.com. The culprit was NutraSweet (aspartame) which also goes by the name of Equal. It was one of the main ingredients in their little girls’ chewable multi-vitamin. She was also consuming sugar-free yogurt which contained NutraSweet. She would occasionally sneak sips from her parents’ sugar free sodas.
You may be thinking the little three year old girl did not have a choice about what she was consuming. But now that her parents are aware of the dangers of those artificial sweeteners and you can rest assured they will be monitoring and reading food and drink labels very closely. What about you? I know for many of you reading this article this is not something new. But, many of you reading this bought into giant chemical companies’ stories that these artificial sweeteners were safe. They must be. They were approved by the FDA. The FDA would not allow something that is not safe to be approved. Would they? If you still believe we can trust the FDA or the government, think back in time. Tobacco was actually promoted back in the 50’s by actors dressed as doctors stating that smoking was good for the digestion. If you hear a lie often enough you will accept it as truth. Our past is filled with lawsuits and cases won against tobacco, pesticides, vaccines, fluoride, and many pharmaceutical drugs. I sincerely hope that if you were not aware of all this insanity and greed you now will accept this information as truth and realize that money talks and that we cannot depend on the government or the FDA to protect the little people. They protect the companies with the big money. Oil, chemical, pharmaceutical, insurance and food are some of the companies that have the largest special interest groups in Washington and spend the most amounts of money in campaign contributions to protect themselves.
Now that you are aware of this information or needed a little reminder what can you do? Spread the truth. Share your story. It is surprising how many people have similar stories like I have shared with you here in this article. Most importantly, stop thinking that since a little Splenda or whatever sugar substitute you use hasn’t caused you any health problems, it must be OK. Don’t wait and see. Don’t become a victim of kidney cancer or some other health problem later on down the road. You have the greatest power in the world, to choose. Decide and commit to make healthier choices. The number one cause of death today is no longer heart disease. It is cancer. Most cases of cancer are preventable through lifestyle choices. Most cases of heart diseases are also because of poor lifestyle choices. There’s that powerful word again, choices. Make it your friend and not your enemy. By making better informed and well educated lifestyle choices, you are choosing to live a healthier, happier and longer life.
