August News 2014

August 2014


Seems like everyday some one alludes to a challenge they are facing. Something they use to do, what most people do, what family does, etc, etc. Well, seems pretty simple, if you want something new it is going to take behavior and lifestyle changes or sacrifices. The challenge may be that we may not be able to fit in the old and the new. Then decisions have to be made, this could be uncomfortable as it was the old way you were, again what do you want the future to be.

The question is, what is right? Is what a lot do right, or was it just easy. Did it just allow everyone to partake pulling the masses down. Are we less healthy as we don’t want to upset someone with the food provided, activity picked, vacation planned, etc. Most would probably say what we choose in our houses is our choice but what we choose for a larger group needs to be fair. How low does fair go down on the scale. We are in charge of the future!
