Seeing as it’s a Friday and right before a holiday weekend, I figured I’d put up something a bit inspirational instead of my normal get your learn on post. First off though, I’d like to thank everyone who is currently or has served our country in the past.
It’s because of great people like you that we get to live freely and pursue life with passion on our own terms.
Speaking of living life on your own terms, one way we can choose to do that, in my opinion, is through healthy living. By actively pursuing physical health through regular exercise and healthy eating, we are able to do amazing things even into what some would call old age.
The short documentary below illustrates that much better than I could ever convey in words. Jim Morris has been an advocate of healthy living for longer than I’ve been alive, and his dedication and passion are obvious.
Now I don’t share the same sentiments about veganism that Jim does, but each person’s journey is their own, and mine does and will probably always include copious amounts of dead animal flesh.
However, the most enlightening piece of the film for me is that we don’t have to deteriorate as we age. The way Jim looks at the age of 78 is a testament that age is just a number and that we all possess the ability to achieve greatness.
So have a wonderful holiday weekend and I hope you spend some time with people you love, I sure plan to.
