A day in the life of Jayla
I am an African American woman living overseas, I am a teacher, with my three children. I want to allow my children to experience the world. I feel the world is a classroom for them. They have learned things other kids their age have no clue about. They have made friends with the poor children in Egypt, the Royal family in Doha and the beddou people in Kuwait. We have all learned so much from this life. I feel blessed to be living this way. I just need to get other parts on my life in order.
I am looking at my life and see the changes that need to be made but until recently I have not managed to take the steps to put my life in order.
I have been at this for a week now and I feel positive about being RAW. My goal is not to be 100% RAW. I know myself and to start off with an unrealistic goal would just be self defeating. My goal is to be 80% raw. I will eat store brought dressing, croutons, yogurt, and I like cheese in my salad sometimes.
I remember when I was pregnant I listened to my body. It spoke to me. funny thats the only time to listen. well this past week my body and I have been talking to each other. Its been talking to me for years but this week I finally hears what its had to say. I eat when it tells me to and I eat what it needs. Nothing more, nothing less,and its been thanking me by releasing the fat I dont want or need.
My goal is to listen to my body. I think if I do I will not be lead back to where I was a week ago. while I am not close to my personal goals for my body I believe I am on the right path and I dont want to find a go back to start card.
I am going to listen to my heart. Usually my problem is I override what my heart and mind tells me. This goes back to listening to me.
I will spend of what I NEED and not what my kids or I want. LISTENING is the key to everything
until next time
Love, peace, and self happiness
