Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I've recently re-connected back here on Raw Food Rehab and have read so many blogs and posts, positives, struggles, and I've come to the conclusion that it really is a journey of progression, wellness and enhanced health and kindness and love to ourselves and no judgement.
No matter where we are on our life's journey, we should embrace everything without the need for beating ourselves up.
We will progress quicker. Even if we eat an apple one second and cave into something that we have been doing for so long the next, even if we are attempting to change past eating patterns and behaviours.
Everything always starts with 'a step', then another. If we start each day with our best intentions to eat more fruit, greens and other healthier foods and practices, then all we can do is learn to incorporate and form better habits that will make us happier and healthier today.
I find the more I focus on doing just one thing the quicker I progress. Sometimes if we attempt to change 'too much all at once' we are placing restrictions on our own self that for the most of us, are unable to keep.
So I've learnt to smile and be happy with whatever I do on a daily basis. This doesn't mean to say 'I'm a happy smiley person' at all times. Far from it - I always have to go 'into myself' and think all the time what I'm prepared to do to achieve my goals and I re-access all the time. But I stopped beating up, a long time ago.
What I find helps me the most is to keep learning, connect with other inspiring others and read a wide variety of books on subjects that you feel can help you achieve.
For me, I'm always drawn to juicing and raw, but I do have difficulty always applying and maintaining, but I still continue to progress with it all, even if I feel my progression is often at a snails pace.
And I'm okay with that! Follow what you feel in alignment with and your journey will be all the more happier for it!
