It’s funny that we choose particular days to be thankful…
Particularly when there’s an opportunity to give thanks every day. 😉
Of course, sometimes we forget or
are so caught up in our “stuff” that we
need someone, or a holiday, to say…
“Hey, you, slow down… appreciate!”
So that’s what this holiday (US
Thanksgiving) is for.
Yesterday, we were talking with an older gentleman, who said he wanted help with his health.
He’s had cancer numerous times,
surgeries, and has diabetes, etc.
After a few minutes of advice Annmarie
realized that it wasn’t getting through, nor was it likely going to ever get through to him.
He had excuses (plenty) and explained that genetics had gotten the best of him.
I sensed a massive fear of the unknown.
It was easier for him to remain in pain and suffer (to eventually die) than to give up his wine or meat.
Why do people do this to themselves?
Why do they hold on to things that cause harm, whether it’s food, drug, relationships, job…
I can’t say for sure, but I have a theory.
They’re living unfulfilled lives.
They have not tried to chase their dreams.
They have settled for mediocrity.
They have lost faith that the human
experience is flexible, mailable and always rewards those in motion – adapting, changing.
It’s sad, yes, that not everyone will be helped.
Particularly if they settle.
I’m sure you’ve experienced a conversion that I just described before with someone you care about.
The only thing we can do is love them for who they are and give thanks for your own health.
That’s if you have it.
If you don’t…
Are you settling? Do you have unfulfilled dreams?
What are they….
Enjoy the holiday!
