How badly do you want to survive?
Survival in the wild is not all that different to surviving in life
I watched that Bear Grylls programme the other day where he is teaching celebrities how to survive in the wild
Some of them are pretty useless
But I know I would be almost equally as bad
I hate creepy crawlies
I run a mile and shudder for hours if a spider crossed my path
I don’t like getting my hands dirty
And I hate being cold
The programme got me thinking about the things we have to go through in life
And how strong we are
We all have stuff going on
Some more than others
I am relatively lucky to be in a drama free period of my life
I know that will change in the future
Drama is guaranteed as much as we are guaranteed rain here in the UK
Births, deaths, events, emotions and strife
It does not make you a better person or a worse person
What defines you and the way forwards is how you deal with it
Run and hide?
Or stand and fight?
Or just quietly put one foot in front of the other and continue moving forwards
Even taking a few shuffles left and right are ok sometimes
As long as we don’t move backwards
It IS inevitable that we have the occasional back slide – and don’t beat yourself up for this
But make sure you catch yourself before it becomes a journey down an old road
Bear Grylls eliminates the contestants based on their ability to survive
If he doesn’t think they can survive the next day they’re out
And his decisions are based on strategy and logic, nothing emotional
Strictly safety first
We only get one chance at life
And taking risks with our health every day
And not taking this life seriously is paramount to being neglectful
There is so much information out there now, that we cant fail to be a health concious society
But we need to be a health concious society that takes that first step towards change
Bear Grylls makes them drink their own urine as a survival technique
He also made them eat live scorpions (minus stings)
What are YOU prepared to do to make sure you survive this AMAZING life?
PS. I am definitely not suggesting that you start drinking your own wee TO BE CLEAR!
