i overheard someone talking about fear the other day.
they seemed pretty into it, and i didn't want to eavesdrop tooo much..so the only full phrase of theirs i heard was 'to embrace fear'.
& you never know what battle someone is facing.
i was going to write this last year..obviously that didn’t happen. so here we are.
you know what i mean. those pesky habits, the ones that are so damn deep rooted that you don’t even realize you’re doing it.
quite possibly one of the most underrated practices even though it's gotten A LOT of press time lately. i say this because that’s true for me. i could use a damn wake up call sometimes to take a step back and realize what in my life i'm thankful for. i don’t know if it’s being in the city or social media or what, but i get in a funk or mood where i am definitely not grateful, or appreciative or realize how good i do have it. everyone has some struggle they’re going through and i’m not saying to compare your struggle to anyone else's, but instead realize your struggle and then take into account the other million things that you have to be grateful for.
plant based, animal based, no dairy, fight inflammation, no nightshades, gluten free, organic, free range, no added preservatives, no hormones, high fat low carb, macros, micros, keto, detox, alkaline, gut health, probiotics, low fodmap, no sugars, fermented foods, digestion, mediterranean, vegan, juice detox, vegan, and damn cauliflower pizza. what the health? no, more like WTAF (what the actual fuuuuuck). so what do you even eat?
i have definitely NOT been 100% lately. my routine & vibe are all freaking off & i need a major reset. make fun of me for saying vibe but it's so true. i think i just had absolutely way to much fun between best friends visiting, memorial day weekend, my parents visiting, & now the exhaustion is all hitting me.
so i ran for the first time in FOREVER yesterday over the williamsburg bridge and i realized that i’d like this to be a ritual of mine. i live suuuuper close to the bridge and to run over is about 1.5 miles, which is definitely my max distance. i’ve decided to *try* to run saturday mornings and try a new coffee shop every time I'm there.
honestly if you’re a girl, you’re always bloated. it comes with being a girl right? there are so many articles telling us what to eat, what supplements to buy, how to keep the bloat to a minimum, that should make it all better right?!?! it’s normal. which is exactly what i thought.
so maybe the title to pt one of this -- getting your mind to shut the f* up -- wasn’t exactly the right one for this post.
i say that because after a straight 30 day meditation practice, i realized that’s not what meditation is ALL about.
why am i not a changed woman yet!? shouldn’t i see an immediate difference? a 100% change in my outlook on life, internal thoughts about myself, and desire well-being for all of humanity? The solution to world peace!?
