Back in Feb of 2006, I thought I had stumbled on to a life path...a raw journey that would last a lifetime.
And what I truly believe I've found is choosing life over death, love over hate, joy over sadness, and moments over things.
I will probably never eat 100% raw again. Not because I can't, but rather I choose not too.
I just finished watching Eat, Pray, Love last night and although I didn't like the main character of the story at all...or agree with decisions that she made, some thoughts resonated deep within me.
Such as, I'm sick of feeling guilty the next day after eating. The counting calories, portions, (or in our case eliminating all that is cooked). I loved the Italy part of this movie. This is where I feel the main character flourished the very most. This is the part that impacted me the very most.
I awoke this morning to a glass of water & Yoga. Followed by a hot shower with prayer; and a breakfast of tension easing herbal tea with raw honey, Ezekiel bread, raw coconut oil with a tsp more raw honey & four small slices of cheese.
I'm determined to find a balance between what I love to eat and what my body loves to be fed. My body loves raw, my heart and spirit still require social involvement with loved ones. Therefore I will not give up special moments in leu of raw. But I will prefer it when I'm by myself. I will chose the closest best option. I will not simply indulge in junk.
Healthy, life sustaining raw is my best option. I will seek it out.
Today's lunch will be lots of leafy greens.
But dinner may be lots of veggies steamed. Dessert of fruits.
I'm going to live...thrive...be happy. For we have but one life. One life. This is the thought of my mind these days as I age. One life. How will I live it?
How will you? (((HUGS)))
