Life Principles I Learned From My Mother #6: Just Because Someone Else Experienced It Doesn’t Mean You Have To

Naturally, we want to belong and fit in.  But, God made us to reflect His nature individually and together.  Our birth justified our existence to be here and add flavor to the world.

You don’t have to do anything that doesn’t resonate with the truth within you.  And, you don’t have to suffer because someone has.  You don’t have to experience heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or other health conditions. For example, on January 8th 2008, I took a non fasting blood test and learned my triglycerides were 250mg/dl. Given that many family members lived with heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, I knew I needed to make some lifestyle changes. By September 3, 2008, my fasting triglycerides was 76mg/dl. And since then, I’ve kept them in the mid to upper 40’s. As you know triglycerides should be less than 150mg/dl.

I share my story to reinforce the misconception that you don’t have to experience what others experienced. Family history doesn’t project your present or future. Instead, you have information to guide your life.

Over the years, my mother would say, you are in control of your life.  So, I’m reminding you that you are in control of your life. Give the questions I ask you considerable thought and listen to the Voice of Truth within you.

Are Experiences Meant to Make You Better or Bitter? Create A Generational Love Cycle With Timika S Chambers

Whatever you believe about life often comes to fruition in some form.  And, whatever you believe, you share with others through your actions (including inactions) and words.  Whether fear or love, darkness or light, it first occurs within and then without.   Make this lifetime great because you can!
