Every Monday morning in America...
There are more suicides, strokes, illnesses, and heart attacks. What goes unnoticed and unreported is the fact our bodies are trying very hard to tell us something about our lives, our jobs, our relationships, and our attitudes, and how such information affects our bodies and our health. I’m not going to delve into all the reasons for this nor am I going to examine the statistical data. Because none of that is relevant to this discussion. But what I do want you to hear are the silent cries for attention—for meaning. Human beings don’t seem to value things they don’t pay for or at least earn. But devaluing something in your mind doesn’t diminish its cost. There’s still a price to pay. And since we didn’t pay for our bodies, we tend to take them for granted. In fact, most people take better care of their cars then they do their own bodies.
