While we’re on the subject of healthy, happy living, why not take some time to think back through our lives about things we learned in the past… Not
ALL information we are currently being
exposed to is absolute. There are bits and bobs of stuff we learned or experienced as children,
or young adults that can certainly help us now.
I will give you as an example I have been staying with my sister for a little while and she recently bought a small pack of red raspberries… We’ve all been told berries are a key to health and that, so far, is still correct, however, my point is: in tasting one it took me straight back to our childhood, picking wild raspberries on the road to our summer cottage. We didn’t know, then all the relatively new-fangled “stuff” about antioxidants being vital to our well-being… All we knew then was that they tasted great and tasted like more, So off we’d go looking for more of the wild stuff and we found them, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries. We’d pick and devour as fast as we could. We were given good knowledge early on, about these little wild gems of all description and many other tidbits of wisdom, as we’d learned from our father, whom I’ve introduced in other posts.. He was brought up at a British –sponsored Boys’
in a once-relatively remote area of
Farm School Vancouver
and had the chance to forage wilderness and experience first-hand the joys of
discovering many of these wild gems, and he passed these experiences on to us.
So, we weren’t filling our faces with them because some doctor or scientist
hammered us with the “good” these treasures contain. We knew about them simply
from our father’s experience AND because we seemed to know instinctively that since
they tasted so darned good, they MUST be good for us!
While I certainly don’t discount the findings of some of our scientific geniuses, and I do research and apply many of their findings, I also scan back to some of what I’ve learned as a child.
Stay healthy and safe!
