I've sort of felt like I was in a race to get to the finish line with this cleanse. The past couple of days I've decided to slow down as David taught me over the holidays. Otherwise if I rush I could actually miss something important, something uplifting.
I am not the type of person that likes to rush anyhow, when I do I find I am out of sync which drives me crazy. For example, I get up at 5:00 am when I'm working, I don't leave my house until 7:30 am. By doing this, I can leisurely get myself ready, that way I'm not cranky or frustrated when going to wait for the bus.
I despise being late for anything so I leave a half hour early, that way if something happens I can catch the following bus and still not be late. I'm pretty sure I got this trait from my mother, my dad didn't care if he was late. I think it's rude to be late, it's like you think you're better than other people. My time is just as important as everyone else's time.
I have educated both my daughters the same thing about time. This is a learned behavior, a simple one that can be taught. Just change your attitude, no one should feel entitled to make another person wait.
Getting back to slowing down, I'm relaxing now and enjoying the last few days of the cleanse. Also, I am taking stock with what I want to keep up with the food cleanse, by keeping the best parts. This has really helped me to think about what I'm eating, I am way more organized so that I can have a healthy lunch. I never want to go back to stopping for quick meals, they are not good for me.
I also think that I will cut back my time with social media, there is no need to be active for hours. The only time I'll be on Facebook for any amount of time is when David is home, it's the way we talk to each other. I know we'll talk on Skype and the phone more but Facebook is easy for him.
I am going to take a Yoga breathing class, this will help to loosen me up more and with all the stresses we have in our lives, it's something we should do for ourselves.
I'm looking forward to the future with keeping the best parts of this cleanse. This has taught me what is important and what is good for me. It also showed me I was more than capable of doing this, all with a happy attitude.
