I finally got myself a copy of Anthony Williams' book 'Medical Medium' which was a fascinating read, especially his story. Since I don't know exactly which of the conditions he described I have (is it Epstein Barr, Heavy Metal and pesticide poising - very likely - or something else) I have been doing some detoxing because last month I was waking up in the morning with severe frontal headaches, which is unusual for me. Migraines I can recognize in a snap, these? Not so much. So I made up a formula based on his recommendations and have been treating myself for several weeks with as much of them as I can do right now. I am feeling much more myself now.
It is surprising (or perhaps not) how your moods and health are interrelated. I've been finding myself drawn back to creative projects that have long gone neglected and feeling very fulfilled and hungry to be able to do more challenging patterns of crochet. I just have to remember that my life needs more than projects and food to function. I can get a little out of balance sometimes when I'm enthralled with a project. Can you relate? Balance is so key to feeling fulfilled and your life maximized.
I've also been reminding myself more regularly that my life is truly blessed and abundant. We are driven by the Western idea of having more, more, more and living with the idea of lack and failure when we aren't one of the 'high achievers' of the world. But if we were to compare our lives to someone in a third world country they would consider us truly blessed and wish their lives could be so abundant. Remembering that we are where we are, and that it is all good, is the key.
So this week I want to encourage you to see where your life is blessed and focus on that and not the lack or failure of where you think you need to do better. You are doing the best you can for now and that's good enough.
