#MicroblogMondays – Sad or sorry?
Over a WhatsApp conversation with my mum last evening, she told me about their new lifestyle and changes that both Mum and Papa have incorporated for better health. Papa has been diagnosed with high sugar levels and following the doctor’s advice, he has made a few changes to his life. He is now regular to walks and is eating a well-balanced meal. When Mum was telling me about their meals and snacks, I sensed unhappiness.
It was not a sorry feeling but a sad one and that made me think, why?
I believe that any change in our life comes to stay.
We have two options – either to accept it with an open heart and enjoy what it means or feel sad about having to do what we don’t like.
What do you think is easier?
When we know that the change is for good, shouldn’t we accept it wholeheartedly?
I know you must be thinking that it’s easier said than done.
Let me share a personal example. I am allergic to nuts and I haven’t had a single one for a year now.
Does that make me feel sad?
Yes, I feel sorry for not being able to eat a walnut brownie or spread peanut butter on a toast. But it’s okay since I am free of all those weird reactions and it’s a choice I made. A choice that let’s me stay healthy. That’s why I am happy and not sad.
Would you agree?
