Come On Josie, You Can Do It!

Josie_reading
Josie has
been scooting along with her own unique crawling style since early May. She had
her first birthday at the end of June. In July, standing up – holding on to a
reliable piece of furniture or adult became the norm.
August brought the fun game of looking adorable for an adult so they’d take you
for a walk. Here it is September and Josie is four steps away from walking by
herself.

I’ve been watching Josie. She stands, holding on – one hand is okay – and lets go.
She stands un-tethered and looks around. Finds something across the room of
interest. Plops down and crawls full speed to get it. Why take the risk of
walking when crawling gets the job done?

The resistance to change starts
early! Since Josie

  1. Ah, Chris, being a grandmother too, I understand the lessons little ones can show us. And certainly resistance to change starts early. Isn’t this because our survival is hard wired to attain pleasure and avoid pain with the least expenditure of energy possible?
    My expertise as The Human Energy Specialist is helping people change their lifestyle habits — believe me, you have not seen resistance to change until you watch people try to change what and how they eat, exercise, sleep, perceive, and stress! The only drivers for change I have discovered in my clients are pain or fear of imminent death due to disease, and sometimes even they are not enough to push people into change! To prevent is not human nature. So, my job is to help them change their beliefs so they can change their behaviors. Amazingly, despite the ever rising lifestyle disease (cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc.)rates, people still don’t believe it can happen to them and keep doing what they are doing until it is too late.
    I have found this is because we don’t recognize the slow changes, we just know that this is the way it is now and accept it. Like a perponderance of auto flush toilets, or blogging as a way of communicating — they just become a part of our way of life without us noticing much. My fear is that we will start accepting that half our life spans are slowly being devoted to spending our time and money on disease instead of living our lives to the fullest. Having seen the joy that optimal health, energy, body fat, and immunity can bring people when they do change their beliefs through education and therefore change their lifestyle habits, I can only hope that we don’t let this expanded morbidity concept sneak up on us to become an accepted part of our lives. That is not the kind of legacy I want to leave our grandchildren……
