Remember those books we used to read as children that had multiple endings? As you went throughout the pages of the book you would reach these intersections or points of deciding your path forward. Once you made your choice on how to proceed, you were then asked to skip ahead to a particular page number which would then take you in the direction of your choice. After several of these choices, you were left with an ending that reflected the sum of all those choices.
Life is a lot like those books. We make small, seemingly insignificant choices daily, and larger, life-altering decisions here and there throughout the course of our lives. Each of these choices moving us in a direction of our choosing, whether conscious or subconscious, which cause us to arrive at a final ending, or result.
If you were like me when you read these types of books, you found yourself turning back the pages several times in an effort to change the ending. Whether you didn’t like the final result of the choice you made, or if you simply just wanted to see what the outcome would have been if you would have chosen differently.
Unfortunately, our lives don’t allow us to do this. What’s done is done. There is no option to go back and undo the choices that we have made. There are no do-overs. This is a painful realization for most of us to face, and we can be left with the pain or regret of those choices later in life.
But there is good news! If you are reading this, your life is not over yet! You can completely change your course, and therefore, your ending. It’s not as simple as turning the pages of a book, but it CAN be done! You can learn from your mistakes and begin heading in the right direction from this day forward.
A lifetime of neglecting and/or abusing your body creates a lot of unnecessary pain, later in life. If you want to avoid this pain, or you have had enough of it and you are ready for change, we would love to help you make that change. To be the best version of yourself – for you, and your loved ones!
What ending will you have to your story? What will your life choices teach those little ones who look to you for guidance? It is not what we say, but what we do, that they learn. Health is modeled. Values are modeled. They are lived out. What are your values? Do they include yourself?
