... More Thoughts on Accepting Change...

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

A recent discussion made me remember back when I was in my late teens, early 20s... I was living proof that even if you're not obese, you can be eating all the wrong things and be totally unhealthy! Especially if you don't know of, or are in denial about a medical issue. and you never can tell, the change can be something really simple but it is important to be open to it.

Listening to others doesn't work all the time either, because they don't walk in our shoes, or really know as much as we think they do...
My college dance instructor asked me to lose 15 pounds before recital...I (I weighed 127 pounds) So I, being young, believed she knew what she was doing, and thought I must be fat or something, and I lost the weight... and so instead of dancing, I landed in the hospital and had to drop out of school. But there are successes too, sometimes unexpectedly...

My aunt used to suffer from horrible headaches... Her doctors could find no medical issue.
Then one summer when it was really, really hot, her daughters talked her into cutting her hair. Mind you, she had not cut her hair in decades, and it was a beautiful black, long and thick and wavy and luxurious. Guess what. The headaches STOPPED. Because she decided to try something she hadn't done before, to change. Her hair is still thick and wavy and luxurious~and grey, and about six inches long... and she just celebrated a healthy headache-FREE 90th birthday!
We all need to "let our hair down" when that new idea comes along... Right?
I think I'll go cut my hair! LOL

    Her hair was SO HEAVY... We seldom if ever think of simple things like that to solve a problem. I think we often make things harder or more complicated than they need to be! LOL

    I think many of us can relate to this. We can't expect our doctors to deal with all our issues when they only see us occasionally. I had intestinal issues every day and didn't know why. My doctor's nurse told me about one of her medical problems and it helped me find the cause of mine. I started eliminating certain things and found I can't eat Greek yogurt. It's not healthy for me or her.

    How interesting about your Aunt! And yes, sometimes we just have to try things and see if they work! But use our common sense, too.
