Health Your Responsibility - Random Thoughts
The biggest step you can take toward buoyant health is recognizing that your health is your responsibility. No matter how good your doctor is, he doesn't know what you're feeling, he doesn't have much time to devote to you, and he's not always available. The best situation is when you work with your doctor as a team.
When offered advice, take time to consider who the intended beneficiary is. Agenda-motivated people could ruin your career, marriage, whatever with cleverly placed advice couched in silvery phrases. I guess it boils down to not being a fish that always goes for the bait.
Grateful for your health
Go through life with grace. Holding the door for the person behind you is a grace note. As is not racing the car coming down the freeway ramp to make sure they don't get in front of you. Why risk a wreck for something that doesn't matter? Smile a lot, especially at the elderly and the young; they don't get a lot of positive attention. Look for reasons to compliment people, even strangers, but especially your family. Be sure to say "please" and "thank you." And live in perpetual gratitude.
Be grateful for the health you have and ask for wisdom as you work to make it better.
Proper responsibility, grace and gratitude release tension, which allows healing.
God is good,
