I have completed one week of the cleanse and I have learned a great deal about myself. I've been able to deal with life, even though I cannot text or post on Facebook and Twitter. I am enjoying the food aspect of this as it really makes me think about what I am putting in my body. It is kind of scary to think of what I just ate without thinking about. It's not as hard as I thought it would be, the only thing I really miss is David.
He's been my support for nearly 6 months, he always says what I need to hear. Not what I want him to say but what I need to hear. Many people say they want this type of person in their lives but then when they have them there, they don't like what they hear. I am incredibly grateful to have him there and I completely understand that he is coming from a place of love when he tells me what I need to hear.
When we are ready to accept the truth about ourselves is when we are ready to grow. If we continue to hide and duck the truth about ourselves it means that we really don't want to succeed. When I finally came clean and told David about all my deep dark secrets, they no longer owned me... I owned them and moved on.
I also have found that I actually have time to clean and organize now that I am not on social media 24/7. I deleted all my apps of my phone, I have decided when my time is completed on this cleanse, I am still going to monitor my time on social media. I do not have to be readily available as I was in the past.
I need to continue to take time for myself, we all need to take a little quiet time without constant bombardment of social media. I allowed it to take over my life instead of using it for what it was meant to be, keeping in touch with family and friends.
So, I am on day 8 of my cleanse, continually learning which is exciting in so many ways and hard in others. The saying that goes something like this; 'Nothing worth having comes easy'. If it was easy... we would all have exactly what we want and we wouldn't be as happy as we think we would.
