The Sun Rises Again: Why I Choose Life Over Deathbeds
I recently found myself in an unexpected place: lying in a hospital bed, staring death in the face. As I laid helplessly, I realized how blessed I was to have experienced life in its fullest – the years of dynamic conversations, invigorating adventure, and warm hugs that so often slip away too quickly. Even in my darkest moment, I felt grateful.
I’m a firm believer in that it’s not how you die that matters, but rather it’s how you choose to live. While I’ve certainly embraced the cliched idea of squeezing the juice out of life each and every day, I started to wonder what more I could do to make the most out of the time I have in front of me — not behind me.
That’s when I decided to start incorporating CBD into my daily routine. Not only does it help me manage stress and anxiety — something that comes with running a farm — but CBD has completely changed my life in the best way possible. After incorporating it into my daily regimen, I’ve become more connected with myself, more focused on the present moment, and I’ve been able to experience life in its fullest with a newfound level of mindfulness.
For me, it’s all about prioritizing my life and making sure I’m continuously leaning into every moment. And that doesn’t just mean exchanging jokes with my three-legged dog Igor or spending an occasional evening ant-farm-sitting. It means listening to the wisdom of traditional healing methods handed down by my Native American ancestors and learning from the teachings of my elders. It also means taking advantage of modern day resources, like the natural calming and stress-relieving properties of CBD.
We all have our own paths in life, and when we’re on our deathbeds it won’t be a regret of the activities we wished we did — it’ll be regretting the chances we didn’t take. So, if I could offer any advice, it would be this: don’t stay idle. Be proactive and don’t be afraid to try things — even if that means incorporating something like CBD into your life! At least, that’s what #CBDForLife and #CBDIsTheAnswer taught me!
Life is sacred and we all deserve to live it to the fullest — no matter how much time the world of time has left us. So, choose life — not deathbeds.
