I live with two debilitating, chronic illnesses. Over the years, I’ve been continually amazed at the amount of unsolicited advice I’ve received about the things I was doing and trying in order to improve my health. Everything has been met with lots of negativity and a long list of why I shouldn’t be doing those things.
Tuning out the naysayers was not easy but I forged ahead anyway.
Eleven years later (and nine years older!) I’ve made notable improvement in my overall health. Not cured — not even close but huge improvement from where I started. Looks like I wasn’t so far off with my efforts and if I’d listened to all the critics, I’d still be where I started.
What do you think? Can you see the difference? The two photos above are nine years apart. The one on the left was actually one of my better days during that time (I didn’t allow photos of myself when I was at my sickest — too bad because I’d love to compare to today.) The one on the right was taken just recently.
Thankfully, I didn’t give up!
Sometimes ya just have to follow your gut!
Take that naysayers!!
