I was looking at my reflection on the mirror this morning and noticed that I look older. My hair is no longer as thick as it used to be and the skin around my eyes is sagging. I guess the years have worn me down and I am no longer as vibrant as I used to be. I am a bit sad but I have to face the truth no matter how ugly. And I have to admit to myself now that I am older that I need to make necessary changes especially with my health.
So, after accepting the truth that I am older, the question I have left to ask myself is, â€śWhat do I do about it?â€ť I had to dig deeper into what I need to do in order to become healthier now that I recognize that I am not getting any younger. I realized that it is really essential that I donâ€™t allow my health to go downhill.
I am just glad that I am not feeling the certain aches here and there yet. I can say that I havenâ€™t paid much attention to nutrition when I was a lot younger and didnâ€™t bother to think about it much until now. Iâ€™ve been online researching on being fit and healthy.
I was once confronted with this question, â€śDo you really believe that knowledge is power? If so, then why?â€ť I have long believed that any amount of knowledge carries with it power. But explaining why was a bit of a challenge. Then after careful thought and consideration, I realized that knowledge is indeed powerful because it can transform lives, and anything that has the potential to transform lives should be nurtured and taken care of. It seems that I am not making any sense here but my point is simple. Our drive is simply not to gain knowledge but to use it to transform and shape the world around us.
