Life is Fragile

Leonard Fish      When I was 11 or 12 I was always inventing games to play with my brother Mel. One day we thought it would be fun to play tag in a large Chinese Elm tree. We were playing tag for only a few minutes when it was my brothers turn to catch me. I went way out on the edge of one of the branches where Mel was unable to tag me so he did what he thought would get me to climb off the branch; he started shaking the branch. The branch broke and I fell head first to what I thought was my death. Then another broken branch that was pointing almost straight up, but at a slight angle, caught my pants going through my belt, then poking through a pant leg with only a few minor scrapes on my leg. If I would have fallen one inch to the right I would have fallen on my head and most likely death or serious injury would have occurred. If I fell slightly to the left one inch I would have been stabbed by the broken branch with a much more terrible outcome. As a result of this predicament, I was hanging upside down unable to free myself from the tree. My brother Mel ran to get my dad to get me out of my unusual situation. The lesson that I learned from this is to never play tag in a tree and that life is fragile. You never know what can happen from one moment to the next. This is the first time I realized, we are not invincible.

The older I get the more I realize life is fragile. If you take care of your body you have a better chance of living a longer, healthier life. This is why I love using essential oils, because they help keep my body at an optimum lever of performance. Jumping in trees is just as dangerous for your body as people beating up their insides with bad eating habits, and taking prescription drugs with their terrible side effects. We can change. Lets go do the right things.
