We take our health for granted, or at least we do when we are younger.
Looking back over the last 50 years or so (sounds old) I am amazed at how quickly things come and go.
And in between health goes up and down. For some it is dramatic, for others it is noting special and then for many it is a little of this and a little of that.
Attrition – eventually we all seem to wear out.
I have quite a number of “events” which have contributed to my current state of being – and I firmly believe that “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” – though I must admit that the first time I heard that I thought it was crass and trite. How we change!
