Dr. Martha’s Monday Morning Motivational
Define weird. I am becoming more and more confused about the word weird and what it means. I also am unclear as to whether or not I want to be called weird. I am not really sure that I am the weird one. More and more I am thinking that weird should be the new “normal” and I may just be ok with being weird. Bottom line I believe that “weird” is really normal.
I love my life and I want to live it full out. I always say that I want to fulfill my purpose and live out my journey rather than have to stop my journey because I am unable to fulfill my purpose. In other words, I want to be healthy, wealthy, agile, and surrounded by people I love. It sure beats the alternative: old, crippled, broke, and alone! My wants define my daily actions. Wanting to be healthy, wealthy, agile, and surrounded by loving like-minded people while I live my life full out means that I need to defy the social “norm”. To get different results you have to do things differently.
It has been said that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results equates to being insane. Our society is clearly insane. It has been proven that working out increases your overall wellness, decreases your chances of heart disease, elevates your mood, and prolongs your life. Yet, people remain sedentary? It has been proven that a diet high in fruits & vegetables, lean meats, nuts, and healthy fats is the appropriate fuel to run the human body at full capacity. Yet, people eat processed foods and ignore the negative affects of the chemicals in these foods? Pharmaceuticals are constantly being pulled off the market for their horrible side effects, causing death, and manifesting more symptoms. Yet, people continue to believe that the newest pill is the magic pill? Water increases our metabolism, rids our body of toxins, and hydrates our cells; it is vital for life. Yet, people ignore water to quench their thirst with a soda full of chemicals? Artificial sweeteners are neuro toxins and cause cancer and diabetes, and paralyze the belly of the muscle while poisoning EVERY cell in the human body. Yet, people say they have to have one because they are addicted, yeah they are; they are chemically addicted. Vaccines have numerous side effects that range from autism to weakened immune system to paralysis to death. Yet, out of fear people continue to get these poisons injected into them without even knowing why? The list goes on and to me it is all so weird but in today’s society it appears to be normal.
I have a different definition of normal. I define normal eating as consuming wide ranges of fruits and vegetables, eating healthy nuts and fats, lean meat for protein, and eliminating grains and dairy. So I follow this for my meal plans. Exercise is important, both aerobic and anaerobic, and I believe that movement creates life. By working out I know I will increase my life expectancy, decrease dis-ease, and eliminate stress in my life and the feel good endorphins are great tool to stave off depression. So I work out 5 days a week. I know that I need water to increase my overall health, rid my body of toxins, and to hydrate my cells and alkaline water is even better. So I drink half my body weight in ounces a day. I believe in the power of positive thought and fully respect that my thoughts create my reality. So I do my best to remain in a positive frame of mind I know that we are not chemical beings and that drugs alter my natural state. I cringe when I read the negative side effects and have no desire to make one symptom leave and replace it with another. I know that humans are self -healing and that a balanced nervous system equates to a system free of dis-ease. I know that dis-ease leads to disease so my chiropractor checks me once a week. I know the power of chiropractic so I get adjusted. The combination of all the above provides the recipe necessary to live an optimal life. To me this is normal and to others I appear to be weird.
Weird vs. normal, much like life it is how you look at it. So, what am I? I’m me and I plan on living my life full out and enjoying every minute of it. I want to make the most of my journey and make memories along the way. I want to be pain free, healthy, wealthy, peaceful and in the company of great friends. And most of all I want to bless others and share my love of life and my knowledge of wellness and if I get called weird along the way so be it! Weird or not you only get one life, live it full out.
Love. Laugh. Adjust.
