Ok, I admit it I am hard headed. Now that I have gotten that out of the way I will say I never thought I was stupid but I proved that wrong yesterday. Over the last 6 weeks with much determined effort my diet was changed to control the inflammation in my joints caused by Rheumatoid Arthritis. During this time I had come to realize that sugar and excess carbs were the true culprits. And yet, yesterday I chose to eat several things that I knew were not good for me; bread, potatoes, rice, and sugar. Before the day was over some inflammation had moved back in and by this morning it was running rampant. The pain in my shoulder is immense.
A hard lesson has been learned, when you find a culprit don’t ever forget that it is a culprit. Don’t let it sway or you off your path no matter how beautiful, delicious, or tempting it may be. As I write this paragraph I realize how many times I have been tempted off my spiritual or business path by things that seem beautiful, delicious, easier, faster, etc. and wonder if many of the knocks in life have been the consequence. Thinking back to some of the crossroads in life when I looked down separate roads and chose the one that looks easier or prettier when wisdom said that was not the road to take.
Is this a lesson that I have learned forever? Will I never make the wrong choices again? I doubt it, but at least it will keep my eyes open longer and cause me to listen better to my true self for a while. I guess that is why they call it a journey.
