I had the good fortune to visit wine country in Ontario Canada last spring, That's right Ontario wine country- more specifically Niagara on the Lake region. Awesome time and awesome wine but I digress....
Like creating a great wine, creating great health takes time, patience, understanding, trials and tribulations, and constant and consistent effort. After a period of time you can and will have the wine and health you want.
When making wine one needs to understand climate, soil, grapes, growing seasons, cultivation, fermentation, and how to deal with changes in all. All of this takes time. A good wine does not happen overnight...it takes years of patience and persistence. As the old slogan says..." I will sell no wine before it's time"!
Creating good health and good health habits is exactly the same. One has to understand Climate- in other words what's going on in your life; and accepting everything going on in your life is YOUR life. Soil- in other words what is your life growing in? Are you in an environment/situation/mindset that will allow your health to grow or stagnate? Grapes- What vines are you planting to create good health? If you start with inadequate or faulty "vines" or base, your base for health will be inadequate. Growing Seasons - in other words what are you doing today, tomorrow and throughout your life. It also refers to the fact a responsible and effective health is going to be different at different stages of your life.Cultivation- how are you preparing "your soil or clipping your vines"-your environment/situation/mindset- to grow an effective health. Fermentation- I'm going to call this understanding. Are you understanding and/or taking the time to understand the processes you are developing and utilizing to create an effective health?
And lastly if things change and they do and will, do you know how to deal with those changes effectively and responsibly?
You may ask how do I know what a good bottle of wine or good health is? As far as wine goes...a good bottle is a bottle you like. As far as health goes...good health is a health that is effective and responsible for you!
When I hear people say to me you look great for your age...I first say thank you, then I say -"I'm like a good bottle of wine...I get better with age"! ;-} So be a good wine maker-know your climate, your soil,your grapes, your growing seasons, how to cultivate and ferment and you will bottle a health that will allow you to age with distinction!
I AM THE DIFFERENCE!!!
