And sometimes you're humbled.

Sometimes you go through life so intent on finding balance, on combating the negative... and you realize you are lacking faith and positivity in a core part of life.

God reminds you.

Sometimes in a sickness. Sometimes through praise & worship. Sometimes through an intense work out session.

Sometimes.

You just hear yourself out loud. Complaining. and it hurts to face it. But you do. It's glaring right at you and you have no other choice but to face it. or go crazy.

So you face it. and you realize you need to take steps, real steps to combat this struggle you are having because you've learned enough to know that this is internal. This is emotional and this is mental and this is spiritual. And this one thing does not have to define you but you allow it to. So you need to fight back. not with anger, hurt, or even force, but to let go. To realize you are not the beginning and the end. That you are not the one in control. nor should you be. Whenever you try to take control do you remember what happens? yeah. I don't think you need a reminder.

But you'll get one. IF you don't stop trying to take the reigns.

This is God's thing. Let him have it.

Humble yourself and realize not everything on this earth will be perfect. How you respond to it will make all the difference.

Sometimes you have a catalyst. And realize that the only way to change things is to change the way you respond to life.

Whole30 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum. 
Leftover…
