In the past couple days I've read a several different quotes that are in the process of dramatically changing the way I think.

"You learn to smile, even in your liver?... This smile will make you beautiful woman."  -Ketut; Eat, Pray, Love

"The wisdom of life is to do what we do not like but makes us better, and not to do what we love but it makes us worse." -Jerzy Gregoric; The Happy Body

"Pay attention to what is going on.  Resist unnecessary distractions." -my mom

It's dawning on me how my patients must feel when I tell them they must change the way they eat and live.  It can be very daunting and is currently causing me a bit of an identity crisis.  More to come on these thoughts in the next couple weeks.


  1. It's best for people to decide on their own changes. We can offer suggestions & let them pick what works for them. Deciding what to eat, when to eat & how much to eat has so many influences. Be gentle & supportive.

  2. Mom, you are so wise. I hope some some of it rubs off on me.
