Eventually something will give. I often think about this when I see a car that is obviously being neglected. Smoking out the tail pipe, bald tires and in need of a tune up. Why does the owner continue to drive their car into the ground? Do they realize that the short-term cost of maintenance far outweighs the devastation of long-term neglect? Also, driving the car in a neglected state can put their life and families’ lives in danger.
Obviously they have never considered these dangers, because it makes no sense to be aware of the danger, yet continue to subject their families to the risk. Right?
A lot of my thoughts lately have been geared toward health and the fact that food can heal and food can kill. It makes no sense why people choose donuts over an apple if it means being able to watch your kids grow up versus having them attend a funeral to bury their mom or dad. The right types of food can heal your body, but the wrong types of food will certainly destroy it: nachos, hotdogs, thick burgers, french fries, sodas, donuts, cakes, milkshakes…trust me when I say that eventually something is going to give. And more than likely it will be your heart.
I hate to be such a “Debby Downer” but have you ever really stopped to think about what you are doing to your future?
If you change your habits, you can change your life!
