Another good Daily Inspiration

This one certainly makes you think - about a lot of things - about what your priorities are in life and the price you are willing to pay for them!

A Fork-in-the-Road Question
Daily Inspiration

We all have to make tough choices occasionally. As life teaches us constantly, each choice we make has consequences attached to it. It reminds me of that old physics equation by Sir Isaac Newton called the Third Law of Motion, which states: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. It’s that equal and opposite reaction that gets a lot of people into trouble regarding the choices they make. With that said, I suggest you consider this question before making any important decision.
Is the money you make worth the price that you pay? This question is actually from an old song by Graham Nash called “On the Line.” Asking myself this question always gives me perspective and helps me gain focus when confronted with a fork-in-the-road moment in life. In other words, is the consequence or result of my choice worth the benefit that I receive on the front end? It works for me every time!

Wishing You Great Health,

    Isn't that life!

    I hate to think about where I would be right now if I hadn't taken the fork labeled "HEALTHY THIS WAY."
