Research article I am pondering: Biomechanics of Scar Tissue and Uninjured Skin
Corr and Hart: Feb 28, 2013 Advances In Wound Care, Vol 2, No 2.
“Skin exhibits direction dependent biomechanical behavior.”  This quote, states that the fibers of the soft tissues in our body align in a certain direction based upon how we move and our body position habits.  This means that when we provide our body with regular, (multiple times per day) full body range of motion exercise and chiropractic adjustments we allow the soft tissue to directionally encourage optimal performance.  If, on the other hand, we are sedentary, experience injuries that go unhealed or maintain poor postures we allow the soft tissues to directionally encourage further disease and lowered function.  Of course, as always, the choice is yours to either experience the discomfort associated with going after creating the life you desire, or the discomfort of slowly losing your freedom due to loss of health.  Choose wisely!

Video I am watching: Transform Yourself Into The Ideal Version of You by Jordan Peterson
Peterson, author of “The 12 Rules For Life”, is a psychologist who has a tremendous understanding of the nature of things.  In this video, in which he is being interviewed and speaking to an audience, he discusses how each of us must make a deliberate choice, despite unavoidable suffering, to work towards becoming who we are truly capable of being.  This can, if we select it, become our primary aim.  He also makes the point that if we understand the human experience, this will naturally be the choice for all people.  This choice is not a small one.  It will, however, change humanity for the good!

Quote I am pondering: “If you dare to do the most difficult thing you can conceptualize, your life will work out better than it will if you do anything else?” ~ Jordan Peterson
Working towards one’s primary aim is a righteous path.  It is littered with difficulty, struggle, heartbreak and frustration.  Naysayers, critics and the fearful will constantly attempt to cut you off at the knees.  However, if there truly is nothing better for you to do except strive towards the ultimate version of yourself, then despite the challenges, you may as well shoot for the stars. Upon making this choice the world will conspire in your favor to bring you the answers, materials, people and strategies you need to accomplish this path. The opposing view of this way of living would be to understand that life is filled with worthless suffering and therefore it is not worth living.  You must choose each day to live towards your ideal expression of who you are.  This week, make a deliberate choice to become your potential!

Have a kick ass week everyone!
