This morning as I got up to wash my face, I realized something quite important in my life: my medicine cabinet. My first thought was: why is it called a medicine cabinet and not a “make-up” cabinet or a “good morning” cabinet since that is where I keep my toothpaste and I open it every morning? So I looked inside and took inventory:
- peppermint oil
- home made toothpaste
- spearmint liniment gel for horses (works great on people too)
- Vitamin E oil
- Natural nerve pain lotion (thought I would give it a try)
- Eye drops for this dry desert air
Then on to the conditioner for my hair and some lotion. So far not too bad. But I do have to add a few things that I rarely use any more:
Now you know a lot about me, right? That is exactly my point! The things you look at first thing in the morning could be defining who you are.
I am not a MD and I am not saying that you need to give up your prescription drugs or non-prescription drugs. But what is your relationship to these things? Do you wake up thinking to yourself: here we go again, my 7 pills so I can function? Or do you wake up and say: How lucky I am that I have these pills to help me get through today and I will do a bit more exercise this afternoon and see how it goes. I don’t plan to hurt as much as yesterday.
It truly is your choice how you think about your life. I have experienced both ways and I can tell you that it is totally up to you how you want to think about your every moment. Amazing things can happen! After 3 years of using a cane I changed my attitude, started meditating (meditation may not be what you think) and a month of attitude adjustment on my part with energy work, and I stopped using the cane. I am now ready to start hiking this spring: something I have always adored doing. Adding dancing back on the list as well. And even if you still take those 7 pills every day, or more, why not wake up with a smile!
