Drinking smoothies, juices, broths, teas, and waters for 10 days is going to be fun. So far, I am really positive and my body is feeling good, so we shall see what it feels like tomorrow. :-p
I've been trying to answer why I felt called to do this fast and there is not one definite answer. I want to try something I've never really attempted to try before because its fun and sparks my inner-warrioress. The word Clarity came to mind, so I am wondering how this word will weave through this fast. I have also been pretty unhealthy as of late and not taking care of my body as I should, so I hope this fast will be a reset button.
But most of all I want to prove to myself I can follow through with this. Show up for myself and the others in the group. I tend to start something but then move one fairly quickly, or lose the passion.
It feels like since the day I left home, it has been one transition after the other. I adjusted to a new place, changed majors multiple times, moved in with my love, and now I am ready to end this cycle. These next two weeks will also be concluding my graduate studies. I am leaving early. I am letting this go. I love museums and will keep visiting them, but I realize this path is no longer for me. I am ready to close the door of my college/school days and let this chapter rest. When I was growing up, my goal was to get out of my hometown and go to school. And that is what I did. I have two Bachelor degrees in Theater and Anthropology and I am proud to have earned them. However, I started letting the 'shoulds' and fears of being different hold me back from my true passions, and with student loans looming ahead, I started to use college as a crutch. I am ready to brave this new journey and fly out of the nest. I'm ready to create my own NEST.
This Fast is exactly what I need right now, and it also ends the last day of my classes. Coincidence? I think not. New Beginnings, anyone?
I also just became a Certified Holistic Life Coach, and my heart is bursting with possibilities. I am so excited for Moondaughter and where she is flowing.
So for now, I sip my tulsi/raspberry leaf tea and observe this flow of energy.
I may be more grumpy tomorrow.
Love and Blessings,
