“Do the Work!”

Recently, a post on Facebook asked people to give advice in 4 words or less.  One of the replies was, “Do the Work.”  Wow!  That covers a lot of territory.  Too often I find myself saying that I want something to happen.  That’s a nice idea but what’s lacking is investing the time and effort needed to bring whatever it is into existence.  But, we all know, I protest, that time is a scarce commodity.  Or is that just more mindless, trendy chatter.

Carpe Diem, a book I talked about two posts ago, quotes some study about the use of time.  Seems that looking at the average amount of TV viewing most people indulge in, by the time a person reaches the age of 75, they’ve viewed an average of 9 years of TV.  What could I do with 9 years, besides get a college degree, become proficient on a musical instrument,  or get my body into awesome physical shape?  Food for thought.

So I’m talking about hair?  And yes, the part on top of my head was getting wider and wider, which could be a commentary on my health.  Seems there’s a boatload of information out there when it comes to hair health.  Silly? Vanity?  Trivial goal?  Good health is never any of these.  So I did the work.

Carrots were right on top of the list of things to eat for so many areas of body health.  I was not very good with carrots.  Then I made my Carrot and Celery Pate, posted December 19, and found a delicious and easy way to eat carrots.


Garbanzo beans are also suggested for healthy hair.  I can easily make or buy hummus.  The dish pictured above is some of my pate nestled next to hummus and topped with my favorite green sauce, added after the dish had been warmed in the microwave.

I’ve been eating lots of this, also using the pate instead of mayo in rollups, my favorite place to consume bunches of greens.

AND, cue the orchestra!!  The part in my hair has returned to normal.  My scalp no longer itches! It’s really not that difficult.  Just got to “Do the Work!”  Amen.  Thanks, Dan.
