What’s been going on….

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I’ve been on here – wow!

Thanks for the link-love that you’ve been sending this way – we’re still clocking in between 30 and 140 readers a day….I find that absolutely incredible and humbling, but I’m glad you find enough here that draws you back.

I’m sure the blogging break was for a good purpose and alot has been stirred up for me this month.

This post has little to do with REPURPOSING things, but more on the REPURPOSED life I find myself living.

*** ready, go ***

october calendar

When we look back in the news, history will tell the tale of panic, confusion and many more unseemly things in the month of Oct 2009.  The whole H1N1 kerfluffle has opened up a new passion in me.  That passion is to wake people up to what is going on in our world…

I’m not a nut, and this is not going to be a post about the deep, dark, evils that are lurking.,  However it is going to be a post designed to get you thinking, and quite possibly taking some action.

H1N1:

Whatever side of the spectrum that you fall on when it comes to the vaccination, this post is not intended to open up a debate for one side or the other.  It is however, designed to let you know that YOU DO HAVE A CHOICE.

I don’t want anyone reading this post to feel bad / guilty / righteous over any choice they have made regarding this issue, so please if you are finding yourself in any of those positions, take yourself out of them..finish reading this with an open mind….

For many years now, we have been slowly giving up our rights to make decisions for our own bodies, and those of our children. At the slightest cough or fever, we have started not to trust our own intuitions and rushed to the doctor’s office, taking each and every suggestion the Doctor has made as gospel for us….this has created FEAR in us, and a lack of understanding of how our bodies were created.

We abuse our bodies at every turn and every meal, and then wonder where degenerative  diseases / auto-immune diseases are coming from.  We rush to our doctor’s and pop whatever pills they prescribe and keep living our self-destructive lives.

We are so busy moving our families from place to place that we rarely take the time to decipher the things our bodies are telling us.  We accept things like acne, allergies, and constipation as normal and never take a minute to try and connect the dots.

It is unfortunate that our cutting edge medical system is now built on a system of profit motivation.  It only makes sense to get us numbed to our own bodies and signals…the more drugs they can pump out, the more their stock goes up, our investment portfolios grow and everybody’s happy, right?

Not so!

health

It’s time to slow down.

It’s time to connect some dots and make some changes which will result in our bodies coming into the balance they were created for.

That is a long road…we are so conditioned to being followers that it is hard, very hard to buck the trend and to simply start the process by saying NO.

The NO doesn’t have to be concrete.  It doesn’t have to be the end.  It actually signals the beginning because until we can say YES with conviction to back it up, we must say NO.

We have to take responsibility for our own health, our own bodies, and our families.  We have to stop giving up and bowing down to the modern medical system.  Now whoa Nellie…I am not saying the entire system is broken and I am extremely grateful for so many parts of our medical system that have the resources and abilities to save so many lives…..I’m just calling for a new balance.  One that looks at the front end, one that says our bodies are fearfully and wonderfully made and that works to support our natural healing abilities that start with BETTER CHOICES.

I’ve always said that if I had enough time and money I’d become a Naturopathic Doctor….well that hasn’t happened yet, but I do alot of reading and research on dietary nutrition and natural remedies….not enough to make me an expert, but enough to know that there are alternatives….

There are some very good voices out there – people educated in the medical system who can see the better way….working tirelessly for a new system…a system that stops long enough to consider the health that can be achieved without a reliance on manufactured drugs.   I support these workers- especially those who don’t put down the current system with absolutes – who call for a better balance – a stopping of the drug company controlled system, and a return to a holistic philosophy.  I will feature articles and links from some of these people.

I think that some of my future posts might revolve around things that I find interesting, so if you are here for the ‘crafting / artistry’ side of REPURPOSING you might get bored…..but if you have any sense that this is something you need to pay attention to, I invite you along for the ride!

    Well said. And I am right there with you. I think too that we need to take charge of our own bodies and our families bodies. We have access to all sorts of information and we need to make informed decisions taking into consideration ALL research, not just from one side or another. Our medical system has some wonderful things about it, I wouldn’t have my dh anymore if the doctor hadn’t known what to do. But by the same token, it drives me crazy when I see my sil and bil who take buckets of pills for all manner of things that are likely environmental or self induced. That is where our system breaks down dramatically.
