Today marks a new beginning. And I’m highly excited…like can’t even sleep more than 5 hours excited. Today I embark on a journey of health and healing. How will I do this? Well, I am starting with a 40 day juice fast. Some of you may think I’m crazy, and I don’t care. If you feel the need to tell me what I’m doing is wrong, please make sure your comments are heavily steeped and backed by some serious research, because I have done mine for a long time and know that this is my next step. Or better yet, feel free to keep your comments to yourself. It won’t sway me and I don’t need the negativity in my life. So..now that the disclaimer is out of the way…I know this will be difficult..especially in the beginning. This is a cleanse of the body/mind/spirit. And I couldn’t be more ready.
This morning as I was laying in my bed pondering getting up or continuing to pretend that I was actually sleeping, I picked up my phone to glance at the calendar…and then realized the date. And then I laughed. Out loud. February 19th. What is the significance? On this day four years ago I suffered a traumatic experience that left me with PTSD and set off a series of events and health troubles that led me to where I am today…desperate for healing and change. I laughed because I didn’t plan on starting my fast on this date in particular…in fact it never even crossed my mind. What a better day to begin anew?! Maybe February 19th will no longer be a marker for how many years I’ve been in panic-attack-and-depression hell and will now be a marker for when my life began again. So I guess the date couldn’t be more perfect! Ready, Set, Go!!!!
