Today, in the 3PP moments ago, we worked our core because we have the freedom to choose. We chose to put ourselves in some acute pain because we believe, in the long run, it’s good for us. We enjoy the freedom to exercise however we choose. Lincoln was right when he said to test a man give him power. Most American’s have been given the power to run our lives however we feel fit. Most of us can’t handle it. This is the big “why” behind our obesity epidemic.
Since 1965 the average American male has gained an inch in height from five foot nine to five foot ten. On average we’ve gone from 165 lbs dripping wet to 195 lbs sitting still. We can’t handle the power. Give us technology, take us off the farm, provide us entertainment in the palm of our hands, and watch what we decide to do. Seems we mostly choose to sit.
Today, read a little history and understand a bit more about your hard earned freedoms. The book titled Undaunted Courage tells the story of Lewis & Clark and their trek out west. As you read about their journey, don’t miss the magic from their Indian guide, Sacagawea who calmed the men as the boat floods and all appears lost. As you read about her calm during her MOT, don’t miss that she had her newborn baby strapped to her back. She didn’t complain, freak, or just sit there. She calmed the men while saving many a manuscript so you and I, today, can enjoy reading them. And, remember, Sacagawea didn’t have the freedom or power to choose.
You choose. Your choices have consequence. Choose better. Good…
