If you need to go get a check up, do it. Not knowing about your health is worse than getting facts. If you need to ask for help, then do it. Two good heads working together are better than one bad heart.
In my father’s eyes
“If only I had known this was going to happen to me?” That’s what my father said to me last year in hospital room after suffering a heart attack. The man who showed no fear, never sweat under pressure or complained about anything, laid before me scared as a little boy who just lost his mother in a grocery store. “If only I had known, I would have taken my blood pressure medicine. I would have eaten less fried stuff, and I would have walked a little more,” he whispered.
Denial, Pride and Laziness almost got best of my father that day, yet he lived. He was lucky. The next time he may not be. Next time YOU may not be!
In a Nut Shell:
Life sometimes has a way of giving us slight hints or sometimes shocking wake-up calls. The question is, “Will you answer call?” Would your life be any different if you knew what future held? Most of us would say it would be. The truth is in that old saying, “We really are not promised tomorrow.”
You may not be able to change when you will die, but you sure can change how you feel each day through daily exercise and eating right foods. What would your life be like if you felt better, had more energy and lowered your stress levels? Can you imagine?
If you had to choose which one would motivate you more to exercise--truth or consequences--which one would you, choose? Most would say it would have to be consequences. No one wants bad things to happen to their health. No one wants to pay price for his or her bad decision, right?
“Are you going to let Denial, Pride, and Laziness keep their grip on you?” There are no guarantees that exercise and eating will prolong death or ward off a disease. However, there is a good chance they can give you a better quality of life? No doubt our health as a whole will get worse before it gets better, but it does not have to be that way for you.
The bottom line is: denying your health is a losing cause; entertaining pride is a waste of energy; and being lazy is no excuse for anything.
