Life Is Not A Dress Rehearsal
I look around and I see people walking around and they are overweight and either struggling with breathing or have troubles with their joints and I think why?
With the advent of the internet there is so much information out there about healthy eating or exercise and I am not talking about leading a monastic lifestyle, just a normal life, so why are they like this?
I believe that it all starts early with the role models we have (parents are very influential)
Add to this the fact that food manufacturers have learnt that adding sugar to their products makes people want it more and will buy more of it and therefore their profits grow, also political correctness means that we are castigated if we want to say our mind to friends about their weight. Weight is a taboo subject along with sexuality, race and even height..
My personal opinion is that people have a choice and you choose whether you abuse your body or not, if you do then either you do something about it or live with the consequences, rather than blaming everybody else.
We get one shot at life, this is not a dress rehearsal. There are people out there who were dealt tough cards with regards to genetic issues or disease, who would give anything to have the same chance that a lot of us take for granted with health and well being.
Do them and yourself a favour and think twice about abusing and neglecting that precious gift of life and a body that functions perfectly
