I have returned from a trip to Idaho with an extremely valuable life lesson for myself. Perhaps even in the category of “Life or Death” I might add.
While I travel often during the year for business and pleasure, visiting Idaho is in an entire different category. After just two full days there my left ear ceased hurting. That meant my neck muscles were not stressed like iron cables, and more than that, it meant I was not clenching my teeth, which meant I was not stressed, I felt physically ten years younger. Just from the lack of stress. I don’t know, maybe I clench my bladder too, or lock up my spine in fight or flight mode. Beats me, I just know the normal aches and pains were gone. And this was in 30 degree weather. One would think that would exacerbate any physical conditions I have.
Not surprisingly, my mental state was in a relaxed mode. I felt sane.
The life lesson is that something in Idaho makes me sane, and/or something in South Florida makers me insane.
Hmmm….let’s explore this line of reasoning.
Headlines from the Miami Herald today include “Homeless man shot on roof of Florida Atlantic University building.”
The Idaho Stateman newspaper headline today is “New Boise Farmers Market finds a home”
