Until you become an adult it is the responsibility of your parents to care for you holistically- physical, mental, social and spiritual.
When you become an adult it’s over to you. Yes that’s right. It’s your choice.
I am not perfect by any means. At 70 I am still trying to do my best to look after me. What I do believe is My body is my temple.
I will cut to the chase as to why I am writing this post today.
At 3am yesterday my son’s partner died suddenly. For privacy I cannot use her real name so I will call her Marg.
Marg at 45 years of age has now passed on. Several weeks ago Marg complained of sore legs and being short of breath. Marg chose not to make an appointment to see a doctor.
Marg since her early 20’s had been grossly overweight, unhealthy dietary intake, regular use of alcohol, daily smoking, little exercise…..an unhealthy lifestyle. Please dont think I am criticizing, I am just saying how it was.
On Sunday at 3am while getting ready to go to work Marg walked into the lounge, told my son ‘I can’t breath, then immediately collapsed and died. Sadly could not be revived.
Shock horror to everyone. Marg will be sadly missed by all. REST IN PEACE MARG.
Life is precious. There are no guarantees in life.
Sorry for the rant.
I guess this is part of my way of dealing with grief.
My lesson from the death of Marg is to take better care of my TEMPLE.
