Yes! Congratulations on the milestone, and a thousand times yes to your quote below. I often think back to that rhetorical question I have been occasionally asked; "If you had your time again, would you do anything differently?" I have always thought along the lines of owning one's mistakes and growing stronger and developing character through them, and so my answer was always pretty much a "no". Now I have diet and exercise routines that actually work for me, so if I had my time again, I would start on these as early as possible.
Then the taoist side of the equation arises and one asks, would I have been able to truly enjoygood health if I did not suffer poor health?
Also, I don't know if what I was doing before could be considered a mistake. Was it wrong, incorrect? Certainly. It was however following the *ahem* very best scientific and medical advice with the best of intententions and the strictest of disciplines.
Now I find myself with problems on a whole new level. I continue to look around ideas regarding health, fitness, exercise and mental acuity. Regardless of how much sense things seem to make I inevitably find myself asking;
Is this more of the CW stuff that I've been trying all of my life without success and simply repackaged?
Is this the new breakthrough that can take me places against the flow of CW, like PB has?
Is this some weirdo crackpot dude with a website and something to sell?
Then I think to myself, "Well Phreebie, why don't you just stick to the sites you know and trust and ignore everything else, until it's filtered by people you already trust?"
That's hardly a paradigm for self-aware learning and development though is it?
I watched this TED talk today and found it fascinating, again I wonder which category it falls into, but I am going to give it a go for Feb.
Sorry for the incoherent rambling, I promise I haven't been drinking.
Congratulations again on the 180s Woohoo
