Family and another shitty job...
I've talked to some of my family about being raw. What i've told them is that i'm doing a 30-day challange, but i have not yet spilled the (sprouted) beans about intending to stick to this lifestyle.
And, gosh, people who are normally very open minded turn around completley once this lifestyle is mentioned! My mother got angry with me, my sister is kind of reluctant..my father is on some sort of Atkins meat-only "to prevent diabetes" so i'm not sure how telling him will end.
When i mention how great i've been feeling, like i'm in tune with my self and doing my body the hugest favour, they act as if i'm attacking them and trying to make them feel guilty. And i was definitly NOT preaching, simply answering a question about how i was feeling. Jeez.
And, have you noticed after going raw how much time people spend talking about how bad they feel? I've really started to notice, and i just wanna scream "raw!raw!raw! heal yourself!!" but i don't. I'm not gonna preach raw until
a) someone asks me
b) someone pays me (haha, raw for pay!)(yeah, straight people might not get that one..)
The shitty job i mentioned... well i'm looking into getting a colonic Ok, so it freaks me out and intriues me all at once. I've read up on it, and it seems safe, and since i'm definitly going through my detox i guess a lil help from a cleanse could only help, right? I e-mailed the place that does them in my area, and *fingers crossed* they'll have an opening soon so i can get one before i chicken out...
