“You wanna fly, you got to give up what weighs you down.” This quote by Toni Morrison got me to thinking about healthy habits. If I want to create health and wellness, I need to take a look at what is keeping me unhealthy. Adding a new treatment or drug to my already existing treatments and drugs and poor eating habits and lack of exercise just adds one more thing to fuss over. Identifying the source of my discomfort is a better approach, before I start throwing all kinds of treatments at it. Simplify. Certainly butterflies cannot fly until they shed the remains of the chrysalis that protected them while they transformed. We all build up a lifetime of habits. Each habit served a purpose and we can be thankful but move on and leave it behind. Simplify.
