Life is something we all have. Style is the way you choose to live it. That’s why it’s called a Lifestyle. So, show me your lifestyle and I’ll tell you who you are.
Temporary Fads to me are as “Google Search” better defines it:
An intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something, especially one that is short-lived and without basis in the object’s qualities; a craze.”
To me, this includes those darn New Year’s Resolutions. Those temporary 7 Day Juice Cleanses, those 30 or so days of Body Detox Cleanses. Basically anything with an Expiration Date, a Time Limit. A Plan without the Intent, Will and Desire for Action of Personal Change or Growth in life.
Sometimes we get so excited about doing something, that we don’t think about the possible mental enemies or obstacles we will face. We don’t prepare. Then life hits us with something and the excuses come rolling in. We stop or put it off… If that’s the case then what was the whole point of even starting? What was your “WHY?”
I don’t want to take it there, but in order to make my point, I’m going to take it there. If your main excuse is that you no longer have time. Doing something daily is better than doing nothing. If that’s too much for you, then answer me this. “IF A PERSON WHO IS MARRIED, WITH A CAREER AND CHILDREN CAN FIND TIME TO CHEAT ON THEIR SPOUSE.” Then what really is your excuse?
Because those people that truly want something no matter what happens around them, will always find a way, they will Make a way. They are consistent, and relentless in their pursuit.
To me Temporary Fads are pointless. Going on a diet for a certain amount of time is pointless. Let me explain this by using the Detox Cleanse as an example.
Say you do the 30 Day Detox Cleanse. How often do they recommend you to do this in a year? In between your Detox’s, do you go back to your regular eating habits? Most people do. Now being honest with ourselves. How clean, healthy and beneficial to your body is the food you eat between Detoxes? For most people, it’s not quite so healthy.
If so, then every time you do your Detox Cleanse you are sending your body into shock (a sort of punishment.) And they recommend you do this 1, 2, or 3 times a year. So you repeat this and hurt your body because you can not keep a healthy lifestyle. There’s an old saying that, Anything truly worth having is worth fighting for. Life is not a quick fix! It’s not an instant 5 minutes in the microwave and it’s done. Health doesn’t come from an antibiotic pill.
I’m very passionate about this because I’ve been fighting daily, and making progress on my own health for almost a couple years now. I’ve looked at all my options, I researched everything I had as an option. I have been paying attention to my body, and how it feels when I eat certain foods or try different things. I’ve had time to think.
This doesn’t have to just be about Fads in diets. Take my “Positivity Reset: The 60 Day Challenge.” A lot of people liked it and reached out to do it with me. They were excited. I explained what this would do by the end of the process if they chose to complete it, if they had the fight to do it. I also explained that the 60 days was just to make sure they got the hang of it, and it became a Habit. That they Will have to continue it after. It’s a Lifestyle, a muscle you have to exercise daily, to keep it strong. **Only one person besides myself finished it. Well anyways, I will have the Revised version of it and the notes I took, on posts in the near future.**
A Lifestyle is more beneficial in life than a Temporary Fad. But, that’s just my thoughts. What do you think? Am I wrong?
Are you following me on social media? If Not, You are Missing Out On A Lot!! Recently I’ve been posting old Throw Back photos of myself. I have also been giving quality content on there almost daily. Just go check it out for yourself.
