If you’re wondering why you have not seen too many Nourish & Strengthen posts from me recently it’s because I’ve become totally obsessed with the health of the mind and have turned most of my focus there. That is not to undermine the health of the body one iota. I felt like I got the nutrition part down and was ready for more. For me, the next step was my mind.
For most of my life I have not really felt that happy on the inside. I had what appeared to be a happy life but I felt mad, bad and sad most of the time. I worked really hard, trying to be happy but there was just an undercurrent, actually more of a rip tide that kept dragging me down. I always felt there was somewhat of a tug of war going on inside me. The war was between who I was verses trying to be what I thought I should be. I totally tuned out who I was and was always trying, trying, trying to be the who I thought I should be. I refused to deal with my past as it was painful and just keep myself busy and successful. The side effects of this behavior was unhappiness and physical pain.
I reached a breaking point and wanted to run away. I looked and my life and was trying to figure out what it was I wanted to run from. From the outside my life looked pretty darn good. I had a great husband and children, a successful business etc. What did I want to run from? I wanted to run away from my feelings and I was assuming how I felt was based on my surroundings instead of looking inside. What I needed was to find myself. Thankfully, I was able to find myself without running away.
Who am I? What do I want? What do I feel? How would I rather feel? I learned a processes to change subconscious beliefs. The process worked so well that I sold my business and started a new one helping people with subconscious change.
I still love plant based nutrition and I might be the only person I know who never, never, never, never ever eats anything that is not plant based and I’m 99% oil free too. I’ve never felt better or weighted less which is always nice. Even more importantly, I have zero fear of cancer, heart disease, diabetes etc because I won’t get these diseases because I am not eating foods that cause them. My son actually asked me the other day if it was okay if he called me a “health nut” and I agreed that I was and I’d be happy if he called me that.
I have a plant based eating facebook page that I post on probably 4-5 times a week with yummy food I’m cooking and great whole food articles and news to share. If you have not read my book yet, please do. You can find it on Amazon, 101 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Fed My Children. The rest of my time is spent on learning about the mind and how we can change our lives by reprogramming our subconscious. My blogs and efforts have turned that direction so I hope you will follow me in both places. My healthy eating facebook page is @ NourishAndStrengthen.
