The discipline that it takes to stick to a detox over a few days is an acquired task that you can only gain from experience. At this point I am at the half way mark of what I have been practicing and life's distractions have been trying to slowly creep in and change the dynamic of what I am attempting, yet personal growth is still taking place. Continue to read about my journey below.
I would love to report to you that I have been able to stay on top of every plan I have laid out for my detox but this past week has proven to be much harder than I anticipated. For me being a mother and wife makes it hard to find the time and space to work on my personal projects just because I have so many parental obligations. Also this week I plan to prep meals for myself because that will help me tremendously to not break my detox plan. The great thing is there are so many places in Dallas that I can go to that have healthy vegan choices and can help with my clean eating. As always I try to incorporate as many raw fruits and vegetables in my day to assist my overall mood and energize me. I usually can curb the cravings with a good smoothie, but this past week has been super hard to do that. Even though this has been the case I still have gained insight and knowledge on my healing journey. Part of these realizations are how much time and energy we divert in different directions by not focusing on our own healing and mental illnesses... ( yes I said mental illness, because any dysfunction within your life is by your own creation or acceptance of what is being done and anytime there is a known imbalance in the body it is know as a dis-ease.)
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."
So to recognize this within myself this week has lead me to want to work harder on affirmations. I have realized that in order to change my life I must change my mind. Through out the 33 day detox this has helped me to meditate and exercise, but now I need to work totally on my thoughts. For every thought that does not serve me in the present moment I must rid myself of it. I delete it and replace it with something positive or something I need to say aloud and affirm to myself. I find so much healing in that. I find that it makes me so much lighter to focus on what I can change than fussing, over thinking and complaining about what I can not. I can not wait to go live from my Facebook page to discuss these feelings with you all so that you can ask questions and gain more insight into how doing this has changed and affected my life.
