There are two things in life for which you pay a very high price: laziness and cowardice.
Your life is your responsibility and nobody else’s, what you make of it is a reflection of how much you have been prepared to work and take risks. It really is as simple as that! You have to be prepared to work at everything, not just professionally. You have to work at being a good parent, a good partner, a good sibling, a good friend, a good child and a good human being. Everything requires time and effort.
Even good health requires hard work. You have to buy fresh organic foods which you may not find in the convenience store around the corner, so you might have to travel further to find it. You will have to cook for yourself. You will have to research natural alternatives for healing and detoxifying and supplements that will keep you strong. You have to exercise and you have to make the right lifestyle choices: no smoking, no drugs, no porn, no alcohol, and no dumbing down reality tv or “news”.
The lazy alternative… ready made food, which is full of toxicity and GMO ingredients, drugs for any health issue, prozac for emotional or mental conditions, alcohol to drown your sorrows, recreational drugs to have a good time, porn as entertainment, and watching crap on tv so as not to think about it all. These all lead to the same place: physical, mental and emotional suffering down the line. Look at our society today. Your choice!
Cowardice is just as dangerous, if you don’t have the courage to stand up for yourself, to speak up, to take the less trodden path and to say no to the things you know are not good for you, then you are back on the road that leads nowhere good. Your choice!
Every step you take, every choice you make, every thought you have, every word you say, is either leading you in the right, or the wrong direction, so watch yourself very closely and choose wisely.
Choose to be ready to do the hard work.
Choose to be ready to take the risk.
Choose to be ready to evolve.
Choose to be ready to become better.
Choose to become healthy.
Choose to become happy.
The best news is that you can change course at any time, it’s never too late, you are never too old, it’s never too far and it is always only your choice.
Remember also… Freedom is a choice, a gift, a burden, and a real pursuit for the sake of those you love. Life is much like being born into an escape room. You’ve got puzzles to solve in order to free yourself before time is up. Ditch the bondage in all it’s forms. To do so requires more education, consistency, intentionality, and bravery than most will ever summon.
Bondage is comfortable, popular, and supported enough to seem like it’s “good enough”. IT ISN’T…
Your life is yours and nobody else’s… and you only have this one life… so make the right choices for you, your family and the generations to come.
