It’s the end of the year and I’ve been looking through this year’s blog posts. That was real easy to do since I only had 2 blog posts in 2016. To extend my stroll down memory lane, I decided to look through 2015’s posts. That was a little more labor intensive since I had a whopping 7 blog posts. I really need to do better going forward in 2017.
Don’t let my lack of posts fool you. I continue to make strides in my daily health journey. I’ve incorporated several new health habits and dropped a few not so healthy habits. I’ve made advances and suffered setbacks. Fortunately, I believe the the advances far outweigh the setbacks.
Preparing for 2017
Over the next few months I’m hoping to take a closer look at some of the changes I’ve made, understand why I’ve made them and explore in more detail how they’ve helped me over the past year or two. The reasons why I want to explore and write about my changes is to make it easier for me to 1) see where I’ve been to help direct me to where I’m going and 2) share information and possibly solutions with people I meet daily. It troubles me to see people suffering from ails that only require minor dietary changes to resolve. Having a blog post or an article with detailed information on how to eradicate the pesky ailment makes it easier for me to share health information without boring people to tears. Too often I talk to people suffering from one ailment or another. Some of their ails are ails that I had previously suffered and have eradicated from my life by making small health changes.
Many years ago I started this blog and my BLULOW blog (which also hasn’t been updated regularly) because I had discovered that common everyday items were able to cure long-standing health conditions. Little did I know at the time that I was taking the first few steps on my path to questioning everything I believed to be true. An awakening was taking place that eventually rocked my very core. What I believed and lived by 10 years ago is no longer the case now.
There’s a saying that I came across recently that said something to the effect of, “If we haven’t been in contact for a while, let me reintroduce myself because I am no longer the person you once knew.” I’ve ruined the quote, but you get my drift. This health journey can be a lonely one. Often times I feel like the odd ball, but I’d rather be the odd ball and know the truth than be one of the crowd living my existence believing in lies.
As the year 2016 comes to an end, I hope we all enjoy a healthier and happier 2017!
