Grow your Hair, Trim Your Hair, Loose it

The hair is our crowning glory.  That is why people from all over the world do everything to make it look beautiful. They grow it, then trim it.  Not only that, they color it, they perm it, they rebond it, they treat it.  They not only wash and shampoo it.

Because of these complex processes, the hair follicles become weak.  The hair starts to fall, and worse, it does not grow back.  Then people starts looking for whatever cure for hair loss that could grow it back.  Sometimes there are successes, sometimes there aren’t.

We can relate what we do to our hair to what we do to our life.  The complexities that we let our lives experience causes its light to flicker and sometimes die.   The harshness we let our lives endure causes death.  Not in the realistic sense but implicitly.  Not in the truest form but pragmatically.

A Metamorphosis of Being

As one grows older, things seem to get slower than slow. It must be the physical components of the body deteriorating. The dead cells actually are not replaced by new cells when the body gets older. The reason for flabby arms and thighs they say.

Even with effort, like taking a weight loss pill to govern the growth of fat cells, the body sometimes do not respond. I know someone who, after taking these ‘wonder’ pills for years, remained a figure with a huge built-in belt bag. There is this other, on the other hand, who looks like a walking set of bones after taking the ‘wonder’ pill for months then years.

It is again being slow or the slowness that kills one’s desire to exercise. Exercise is the only effective but difficult way to cut fat and maybe loose weight and be transformed into a body of mostly lean meat. Or maybe it is the condition where a poor soul is overwhelmed with life’s crisis, difficult and tight situations, disappointments, or troubles that destroys inspiration and be able to regain or maintain the adrenalin.

Sometimes, some kinds of pain don’t heal easily. And one of them is to accept that old age is inevitable. The only cure is to have that metamorphosis of being by changing the way we have to look at life when growing old cannot be avoided. Acceptance is a positive way to start the leap to this phase and then comes the rest.

When There Are Only Two Choices

The first three questions were already part of an entry in my hosted site that got lost and the remaining three are new. In life, there are always choices to make and you can ponder on the choices in a happy way like answering a meme:

  1. Now, if you will be asked to choose, would you have a) a skillful teacher that lacks EQ, or b) a mediocre teacher who has that capability to connect with her/his students?
  2. Would you prefer food a) for its glorious appearance, or b) for its taste even without the glamour?
  3. If God asks you to give him back one of the two most important senses, would you rather give your a) eyesight, or your b) hearing sense? And why?
  4. If you are to choose between living a short but accomplished life and a 100-year life span without accomplishing anything, what is your choice?
  5. Would you prefer that your daughter loves you but does not heed your caution and instructions or your daughter does not love you but does every wish and admonition you give?
  6. Would you be a president who is popular globally but is hated by the citizenry or one who is less popular but is well-loved by every taxpayer or subject?
