I started this post a few days ago and came
up with so many examples to hammer this idea home, but, then upon further reflection I thought what's the point? It's only my short list of personal truths so here goes:
* Your colon is a self-cleaning organ. It does not need help to perform its function. If it ever does, then you are probably pretty sick or have a really lousy diet.
*Exercise is good for a lot of things but not for losing weight.The only way to lose weight is to eat less. Period.
*The meat industry (factory farming) is a shameful and horrible fact of our modern world ( Let's include the dairy industry in this one) and needs to change -- I am doing what I can for that.
*The only reason a well fed, semi-intelligent , person with means, becomes a hunter is because they enjoy killing animals.
Please, will just one hunter admit this?
* Genetics and luck are two things needed in life to be successful and money and education do both help a great deal.
*Sun protection is
the best thing you can do for your skin to keep it looking decent for a few decades. The concept of 'anti-aging' is marketing as its worst (best?).
*YOGA is ridiculous. Sorry but it is.
*Most of us are average. Being 'special' or 'gifted' is a modern label applied to every child -- how can this possibly be the case? And as George Carlin once asked "at what age does a child stop being special?"
* It really is not possible to achieve 'anything' you want in life.
(see above 'genetics, luck, money,education')
*A clean home is a thing of beauty
(speaking of mine not yours and how I feel comfortable living)
*I try to be polite and kind to all living things.
*I prefer being charitable in a personal and private way.
*I do not like to talk about my personal finances.
*Your religious beliefs are your religious beliefs.
(and lastly for now)
*When someone stops living, they are just gone, and that is okay.
Okay, I may have gone on a bit here but trust me...I left out a lot of things -- stuff about friendships and family and feuds and making amends, as well as the art of cooking....so many post ideas for yet another day.
