I'm sure you've all heard that old saying, "It's all in your head". When people say that, they're indicating that whatever you're thinking or experiencing isn't real. It only exists in your head.
I'm 63 years old and in relatively good health. I have a few minor issues. First, I have the start of glaucoma which is being kept under control with eye drops. The second thing is my hearing. I'll be getting hearing aids soon. Then there's my teeth. They've been an issue for years. I'm told I have soft teeth and it's just something I have to live with.
The other day it occurred to me that all my issues are literally in my head. I found that interesting and kind of funny. So... are these things real or did I make them happen because I believed what I was told. I believed that because of family history, these things were inevitable. Did I just give up and accept it all? Is there something I could have done to prevent it? Is there something I could or should be doing now?
I'm a firm believer in having a positive attitude. I believe that our thoughts, words and actions are creative. So if you ask me how I'm doing, I usually answer, "Fabulous!" And I AM fabulous. After all... It's All In My Head!!!
