I’ve been away from the blog for a while. We’ve been trying to finalize the move in a few months, nail down housing, and figure some details out about the future of the business. Likewise if you’ve followed us on Facebook than you’ve noticed the Facebook page is gone as well. There are a few reasons for this not least of all is that I get tired of wasting my time, breath, and energy trying to help people get healthy only to be ignored in favor of “some friend who saw a thing on TV or knows a guy.” The fitness industry is famous for its preference for rumors of easy tricks and quick fixes over the advice of experienced professionals.
I’ve also been thinking a lot about the future; specifically my impact on it. Not long ago I wrote an article about lessons to leave behind to my unborn children only to find out my fiancée was pregnant a few days later. Since then we suffered a miscarriage so that great adventure will have to wait awhile longer. Life goes on and we have to keep putting one foot in front of another until we get to the end; or the big coach in the sky takes us out of the game. Even though I’m not going to be a father as soon as I had hoped it doesn’t mean I don’t want to make the world a better place. In fact it’s becoming more and more of a concern given the dreadful content of the nightly news lately.
With that in mind I ask you; have you thought of where your food comes from lately? If you haven’t you should and I’ve included a little video to help spur the discussion along. Now bear in mind it’s just an advertising stunt to help promote Chipotle’s new mobile game, but it does have quite the impact. I have always been a fan of this eatery’s food though the customer service locally leaves quite a bit to be desired. Chipotle’s drive to stock locally sourced and organic foods is admirable though even if it is only skin deep. So go ahead watch the video and then I dare you to not think about the quality of the food making its way down your throat.
“Cultivate a Better World,” it’s got a ring to it doesn’t it.
