One of my many favorite sayings is: “My body lives in 2008, but the rest of me lives in the 1950's!” The reason my body lives in the year 2008 is because I made the mistake of forking over several pesos for a mirror that doesn't lie to me. I have been known to be wrong once in awhile, but it seems to me that since my mind still clings to the 1950's, when I was a teenager, that when it tells my 5' 9” of DNA to do something, the mass of atoms responds...granted, not as fast, but it does respond.
Naturally, this can be the result of many events, such as exercising. It could also be that my body is still so use to being told what to do, that it just does it without thinking, although it does complain once in awhile. As long as it doesn't get belligerent, I guess I will be all right.
They have also come to the conclusion that financial, mental, physical, emotional, and all kinds of other stress is not conducive to a healthy and long live. And all that stress is caused by many situations in our lives. As far as I am concerned, the most stressful ones are the ones in which we are guilty of causing ourselves --- we humans work very hard at complicating our lives!
Its true! When we graduate from school, we usually cannot wait until we go out and purchase the most expensive house we think we can afford, the best vehicle we think we can afford, and thanks to credit, we think we can afford anything that exists. Naturally, we grab the first job we can because we have all those bills coming due. The next thing we suddenly become aware of is that we have several mini DNAs scampering around, which increases our responsibilities and our debt.
On a scale of one to ten, we now find ourselves at about nine on the stress meter...and on the aging scale of one to a hundred, we lowered ourselves down to somewhere around 50 or, if we are lucky, 60!
At that point, the hardest thing for us to do is relax, but that is the best sensible conclusion! The next sensible conclusion is to sit or lay down somewhere and spend a little time feeling sorry for ourselves by crying, and then laughing --- the reason it makes sense, is that we will have gotten most, if not all, of the stress our of our system, and the sensible solution will magically pop into our heads ... its time to get up and solve the problems!
As we solve each problem, we will discover that we have more time to spend with our family, will sleep better, will exercise more, will dine more sensibly because we will have more spending money, and will therefore live a lot longer...and that means that we will have an absolutely wonderful time giving out great advice and eventually becoming a well-known sage.
Makes sense to me!
