When I was diagnosed for the second time with Cancer, I signed up for latest medical updates online. It was with a web-site that I had gone to, for just information at the time. Since then, they continue to send me the latest information out there. I am always amazed at how in just a year and a half, information can change. What used to be safe is no longer safe. What used to be the only way, is no longer a healthy option. Yes, it is just information but...it is ever changing.
Some days I read all about it, other days I don't. Some times it scares me and other times it enlightens me. We live in a world that keeps trying to tell us if 10 people did it and it worked, then it must be right for everyone. I am guilty of that myself, if something worked for me then I share it with a friend or family member and swear that it is a for sure thing ( because it worked for me ). I guess that is called our ROSE COLORED GLASSES. I am beginning to understand more at my ripe old age of 50 1/2, not everything is for everybody! Why is that?
Because we are all different, from our genetic make up to our upbringing. Even people who come from the same family can have totally different experiences or outlook on things. Life is individual, life is personal, life is all about finding the right information for ourselves. Haven't you wondered why something that has been tried and true for so many, didn't work for you? I thought about this whole thing when one of my nieces told me she was having trouble with her child eating and sleeping enough. She has been diligent in studying and reading everything that she can get her hands on ...with no results. Why is that? Same reason, her little one is different, an individual and her own little person. The truth is somehow those little kids grow up just fine, against all the odds. But that is hard to remember when you are sleep deprived!
I am grateful that we can find out what information we need about anything in life and then have the opportunity to study and pray about it, to see if it is right for us. Now that is not just information but the right information for you. In the Bible in the book of James 1:5 we read...' IF ANY OF YOU LACK WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, THAT GIVETH TO ALL MEN LIBERALLY, AND UPBRAIDETH NOT; AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN HIM.' Now that scripture right ,gives me a lot of peace. As I continue to receive information about cancer or anything else in the world, there is a place I can go to see what is right for me and for that I am eternally grateful.
