As I lay awake in bed last night I had the thought of just how hard it is for our bodies to calibrate and adjust to our food and drink choices, emotional stresses, physical changes and stress etc. It was like watching a movie as I thought through the different organs and bodily systems. If one had a virus or disease attacking any thing in our bodies, add and magnify the additional stress and roles to play as we meander thorough every day.
After working myself up mentally, I settled into listening to my heart rythm and feeling the extra beat it was throwing in there. Often I have syncope that I can actually feel in my chest which can grab my attention so much its dis-heartening ( no pun intended 🙂
So, why worry? Why get all worked up about something that has been operating pretty well for over 65 years? Well, how about its over 65 years old and we have programs and thoughts that suggest it won’t run for ever. I know there will come a time when the body will fail and I work with families that experience this every day. I have buried my grandparents and parents, uncle and aunts and friends, and one day it will be my turn.
What I came to last night was, live life, enjoy life, participate in life, appreciate life and give what you can to your life and those around you everyday.
“Blessings on your journey”
