“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,… and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
This much revered Robert Frost quote offers a vital question for you to consider when thinking about your health and well-being: Are you focused on the road back or the road ahead? So much of our health care paradigm is focused on the road back. How can I get back to the way I was before? How can I have less of what I don’t like so I can live like I used to? I wish this would change so I can go back to the life that I’ve had. I want things just to be back the way they used to be.
How often have you had these thoughts and how often has your health care only promised going backwards?
It’s much more important relative to your health and well-being to stand in direction you’re facing. If you have a health care concern that is in front of you, or a health care concern that is paramount to you right now, I invite you to consider it to be a gift. It’s an opportunity for change, it’s an opportunity for growth, and it’s a sign that you are ready to move in a different direction. Any disease, challenge, or symptom can be a path to a new road if you can turn and face it rather than facing away. Looking to the road ahead will help you find the answer. Rather than focusing on going back to the way you were, focus on what can be better going forward. How can I be more vibrant in ten years? How can the next ten years be the greatest level of health, well-being, and fitness I’ve ever experienced? What can I give, do, and/or change about myself and how I am living to have the road ahead be more joyful and enhance my life experience.
It is up to you to decide on the road ahead or the road back.
In fact, you do not have to have a condition, problem, or crisis to make that decision. You can make that decision on any day, at any moment. You can make decisions for your health and well-being from the vantage point of what you would like the road ahead to look like so that you have the best experience of your life and are the best version of yourself. What kind of food would you put into your body to fuel the road ahead? What amount of sleep would you get? What amount of movement and exercise would you enjoy each day? Be on the road less traveled. Be on the road towards an optimal version of yourself.
