“Just watch me!” I answered.
So, for the next 12 months, I took really good care of myself. If I started to get a sniffle, I did everything that I could to protect my health…and I never got sick for the entire year.
It was a powerful lesson for me that we each have some control over our destiny. When you’re told things about yourself that are less-than-positive – by friends, family members, society, your culture, doctors or psychics – it’s up to you whether you accept what they say. You have a choice. (You can get a diagnosis, but you don’t need to accept the prognosis.) Blessings!
By the way, this is not my story, but I found it worth reposting.
