Three days ago, I embarked on a journey of self-care and introspection.
I chose to embrace a fast, bidding farewell to sugar, caffeine, and the digital world. As I find myself in the midst of day three, I must admit, it’s proving to be quite a challenge. You see, in my past experiences with fasting, day three has always been the toughest hurdle to cross. My body is courageously releasing toxins, and my energy seems to dance between moments of unpredictability and sheer exhaustion.
Amidst the discomfort, I’m trying to remember that this is all a natural part of the healing process. It’s as if my body is gently shedding layers of what no longer serves me. I’m feeling a blend of frustration, sadness, and a surge of emotions that ebb and flow like waves. Old traumas come to the surface, while others begin to fade in the distance.
I question myself, my motifs, my sense of belonging and being.
Yet, I hold onto the promise of what awaits me on the other side of this struggle. It’s not just about feeling incredibly vibrant and alive; it’s also about finding clarity in the midst of chaos. Those emotional tides that rise within me are not the reality of the present. They are echoes of the past, gradually fading into the distance. As I weather this storm of emotions, I’m granting myself the compassion and love I truly deserve.
In this temporary abstention, I’m gifted with the opportunity to recalibrate my relationship with sustenance, be it physical or emotional. As I abstain from certain foods, I’m allowing my digestive system to reset, paving the way for improved nutrient absorption and overall vitality. Just as my body is detoxifying, so is my mind, liberated from the constant chatter of social media, especially Facebook. This intentional pause allows me to regain focus, cultivate deeper connections, and rediscover the beauty of genuine human interactions.
And in the midst of these changes, I find solace in the knowledge that I’m nurturing a profound sense of self-compassion. This act of fasting serves as a reminder that I am deserving of care and attention, that my well-being is a priority. It’s a declaration of self-love, a courageous step toward becoming the best version of myself.
It’s not easy to put myself first and foremost with the demands of children, work, and life. It’s necessary to do so in order to bring more positive energy into my life. As the days pass, I will continue to embrace the challenges and the rewards that come with this journey. With each passing moment, I am inching closer to the radiant clarity and genuine exuberance that await me on the other side. My spiritual body is cheerleading me on the side lines to continue….
Be kind to yourself. I love you!
