Do you follow the crowd so that you will fit in or because you don’t trust your own judgement?
I don’t consider myself a “sheep”, however, a very funny thing happened recently that I must share that was glaringly obvious to me that I don’t always take the lead when I should. Trust me, I’ll bring this around to food.
I was at a NeoLife convention in Phoenix – in July – yes it’s hot there. I am with a group of friends, on a mission to prepare for a party, in a vehicle that had suffered a dead battery, was started and destined to visit the car doctor the next day. In the meantime, we 4 gals are driving from Point A to Point B with instructions NOT to stop the car.
Lo and behold, there is an estate sale in an exclusive neighborhood that would undoubtedly have treasures we couldn’t live without. My dear friend and mentor, parked the car like Mario Andretti to check out this sale.
In the minute prior to the key turning the car off, I knew in my heart we should NOT do this. I did NOT speak up to remind Mario that we could not stop the car because it would not start again. I knew she wanted to stop and I said NOTHING.
Guess what?! The car did not start. We stood in the 100 degree heat while 2 men saved the day.
We DID get all the prep done for the party and no one was the wiser. EXCEPT the men in our lives who gave clear instructions about the car battery and one of the saviors who actually attended the party. Uffda, what a day!
What does this have to do with healthy food and feeling ageless?
Have you found yourself following someone else’s “diet” because they feel great and have lost weight? Or jumped on the latest fad bandwagon? I did that when I was younger and have learned since it wasn’t a wise choice.
Have you wondered why you can lose weight and your friend or spouse can’t? Or that what you ate 20 years ago doesn’t seem to work anymore?
If there was a one size fits all diet, we could all buy the same book and be done. That is truly not the case.
That is one big reason I love what I do. It is gloriously rewarding for me to hear about clients’ achievements and aha moments as they learn what foods nourish their bodies. Or what is the new best form of exercise for them.
Oh… We had a great chuckle and the bond between us is only stronger after our escapade. Find the blessings in every situation. I dare you! xoxo Make it a great day!
