“Your health…….an investment or an expense?”
I recently took my four year old son on a weeks holiday for a much needed and well earned break……for both of us.
Seven days to recharge the batteries, reflect and spend time making amazing life long memories together.
We loved it, he was non stop…..it was like paradise for a child of his age – sunshine, pools, parks, football courts, beaches and as much ice cream as he could absorb!
Thankfully for me, I managed to keep up….at 36 I’m no longer a spring chicken but one thing I try and do is look after my body and my mind so that I can play as active and important role of my child’s life as he grows up and experiences the world!
Imagine not being able to say..
“Yes, let’s go to the beach and dig a hole”
“Yes I will come in the pool and play”
“Yes I will play football with you”
Unfortunately this was and isstark reality for people…..I’ve witnessed it with my own eyes on several occasions over the last seven days.
Children wanting nothing more than mams, dads or grandparents to play with them but having the unfortunate answer of “no”…….because frankly they can’t move easy enough due to lack of investment earlier in life…
The look of sadness on the child’s face after they’ve asked over and over again and been told no was something which was as clear to see as the sun in the sky….
“Why can other boys and girls play with their parents but mine can’t play with me”
That’s probably the thought pattern running through the little ones heads as they trudge off alone to play by themselves once again.
My next thought was….
I wonder how the adult feels always having to refuse the kids requests simply because they aren’t healthy enough to do so??
I wonder if they question the choices they’ve made in life and put other things higher up the order of importance than actual LIFE and HEALTH itself?
Surely at that point in time you ask yourself the question
“If only I had INVESTED in myself…..”
“If only i’d of taken steps to prevent reaching this stage”
You see hindsight is a wonderful thing and so too is the HEALTH you’ve been given and the freedom to be able to move freely and actively…..but don’t for a second think that’s a given.
These days it saddens me to see people rank so much other stuff in for as more important than themselves and their health…..
It’s the most precious gift you’ll receive and should be looked after with care, pride and thought for as long as you can….
Making memories with loved ones who idolise you like a super hero will be something you can cherish for ever…….and people are missing out on this day after day.
The good thing is if you’re lucky enough to be reading this…..
