I saw a meme on Instagram this morning that inspired me, and felt very much in alignment with my journey this week.
Nine and a half months ago, I first experienced that sweet, gentle desire to take care of myself…leading me to make radical, and permanent, changes in my lifestyle. That truly was the beginning of a whole new way of eating and healing and being more in tune with my body and what it needed. I haven’t looked back.
Inspired by a strong and supportive health community on Instagram, I decided to experience a juice cleanse…seven days of drinking my meals and snacks…as a way to take nutrients to a cellular level, nourishing my body deeply while giving my digestive system a break.
Today was my first day of juicing and my creative side enjoyed trying out new recipes. I had fun combining a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs, and spices such as ginger, and running them through my juicer.
I feel energized, centered and excited this evening, as this experience unfolds. And I feel very tender toward myself as I allow that sweet, gentle desire to guide me into this, another beginning. These beginnings usher in powerful changes for me. I anticipate that juicing will become a vital part of my continuing healing journey.
Please join me in this adventure, by visiting my health blog:
For the first time since I began the second blog in January, I will be posting daily in both. I feel up to that challenge, and the seven day juice cleanse. Desire is sweet, gentle…and powerful…indeed.
