Life is Mainly Gray, Not Black & White

Life is Gray Not Black and White

Life is Mainly Gray, Not Black & White

That's one of the biggest lessons that cancer taught me. When I was first diagnosed my diet (prescribed by a doctor) was very extreme, I couldn't eat meat, nuts, beans, diary, eggs, sugar, bread, pasta and a bunch of other stuff that I can't remember now.

My diet was super healthy but I realized that it came at a cost. We stopped having family meals, because we couldn't share a meal anymore. I didn't really want to go out to dinner because I couldn't eat anything that was served. Holiday get togethers I brought my own food to eat, while everyone else excitedly ate their turkey dinners.

I felt alone and more and more isolated. I was depressed and sad.

What I learned is I don't want to stay alive just to have a miserable existence. What's the point?

I learned that finding a level of happiness and contentment is an important element of overall health. I learned that emotional health is as important as physical health.

So I don't believe in the black and white anymore, I'm not smart enough to make that determination. I live in the gray area now, I believe many refer to it as moderation.

So now I'll have that glass of wine, I'll have a meal out with friends and at the same time I'm be mindful, yet happy.

I believe your health is determined not by singular, or occasional events it is more the collective climate of your life. It's not what you do once in a while, it's what you do everyday that you need to pay attention to.

This goes for my dogs too. They get special treats once in a while and I'm ok with that.

So don't stress out and try to be all one way or another, go with the flow and it'll be the fastest way to find your happy healthy place.

  13. Professor Roger Pielke Jnr, an expert in sports coverage based mostly in Colorado, argued that the position paper’s conclusions would
    only encourage prejudice in opposition to transgender and DSD athletes.
    Consultants within the fields of medical science and human-rights
    have admitted their frustration to this newspaper that one set of IOC tips apply to each
    the transgender and DSD communities, despite their distinct differences.

    Professor Jurgen Steinacker, the chair of World Rowing’s Sports Medication Commission, is among the position paper’s co-authors.
    ‘It is true that it’s only truthful on transwomen to
    respect their selection to compete towards cisgender women but fairness is at all times bidirectional and one group can not determine
    what’s truthful for one more. Professor Steinacker told Sportsmail that the IOC tips are prejudiced against
    cisgender female athletes in elite sport. At the most excessive instances, the place
    paper proposes, the IOC’s framework might compromise the physical safety of cisgender girls in sports equivalent to rugby
    by allowing athletes to self-determine into the gender of their choice.
