I know I should be more positive.Or rather, I should let myself be as positive as I am, and stop right there, rest in that space.In other words, I could practice being positive without the buts.None of that, “I’m really really grateful and fabulous — But....” stop at the good part.Stop at “Yay.”Notice when I’m overriding or keeping going right on through the tasty bits, and the nasty bits, notice when I’m moving it all along just a little too fast to notice much of anything.
I’ll admit that I had an avocado for breakfast and am currently drinking watered apple cider vinegar from a mason jar. But the smoothie blogging is over. For now. Now it’s back to the real nitty gritty, the Big Stuff: Brunch, co-hosted brunch.
Today: 1 bunch kale, 1 apple, 2 handfuls frozen berries, 1 splash apple cider vinegar, 1 handful of ground flax seed, 1 dash magnesium, 1 dash psyllium husk, 1 emergen-c packet, some water. Obvi AOAP (all organic as possible). I never thought I’d become a smoothie person, and maybe I’m not, since it’s only been four days after all. That said, today’s is a fresh, leafy, but surprisingly drinkable concoction and I am feeling better in my body and my belly. I don’t have to notice that, but I am noticing that.
2 lemons with rind, 2 handfuls of pre-washed super greens, 1 apple, 1 splash apple cider vinegar, dash of psyllium husk, dash of magnesium.Zoinks! This is a tart mofo today, with tiny bits of rind texture that aren’t a palate plus necessarily. But I’m drinking it.I had to add a glob of honey to cut the acid.
My stomach was jacked last week, unclear why.Not sick exactly, but not working optimally either. I did that “listening to my body” thing folks talk about, and my body, my belly, actually wanted a little time off from digesting. So I went juice, well actually smoothie.
A few of my peeps have some kind of comfortable quiet sitting morning ritual. During their morning sit sesh there might be some inspirational book reading, some pet patting, some gazing out the window as the morning light changes everything, and maybe even some gentle closing of the eyes while deep breathing in and out, listening to that, paying attention to that.
I’ll admit it, sometimes - ok oftentimes - a thought comes to me and I write it down before I really know what I’m going to say or do about it.Today is one of those days.And, what I’ve learned is, it’s ok.Or, “it’s all good,” as some would say.I don’t need to have it all figured out, every action, every plot point of every day or year of my life. I can relax and keep going at the same time.
