Over Coming Our Influences
Tuesday, July 07, 2020
I'm leaving my 73rd Spring and entering my 73rd Summer. This Fall and Winter will be my 74th on this earth.
I remember when I was young, I couldn't wait to be 17. I don't know why but I think we all have that magical age that we can't wait to reach. Then once we reach it, it is sort of a let down because we realize that it's like the anticipation of opening a Christmas present and the anticipation is over once we're there.
Me way back when I was in my mid-'20s:
At some point in my life, I realized that I felt like I was in a fog. I don't know any other way to describe it. It has only been in the last few years that I have noticed that I was no longer in the fog. If I had to guess what it was, I would have to say life's lessons is what brought me out of the fog. Knowledge (life's lessons) is a powerful thing.
We all go through happy times and bad times. It's what we humans have to do to grow and build our beliefs. We are all influenced by the things we've lived through. Such as our up bring with the family, friends, religion, politics, nutrition, physical, and millions of other influences. We are the product of all that has made the biggest or smallest impressions on us.

Yet, I believe we can overcome some of those influences if we keep an open mind and are determined enough to make changes. Such as our eating habits.
I wish everyone the best in their healthy weight loss journey.
