Words: Only You Decide What Can Enter Your Mind & Body

words-onlyyoudecidewhatcanenteryourmindbodyAre you a people pleaser? I know I am. I avoid conflict whenever possible, often defer to other’s wants and needs before my own, and don’t like to be a bother.

Well, when you’re on a very specific diet, making exciting life changes, or working toward goals that you’re excited about, you’re bound to upset some people in your life.

I’m about to attend a meal with family this weekend where I’m sure there will be nothing that is appropriate for me to eat. I spent a few minutes thinking I’d just eat a little and not say anything, but then I realized that would be sacrificing all the purifying I have been doing over these past few weeks. These days, it is a temple, I am feeling amazing, and I am not about to give that up to make those around me more comfortable. Instead, I’ll bring food I can eat (with enough to share, of course). I am not about to go through gluten headaches just to avoid attracting attention to myself.

All that to say, do you, dear readers. And don’t let anything unwanted into your temple.

    I think the real question is::what would you like to eat? If you wouldn’t like to eat what is presented, then don’t eat it. But also do not deny the food from a defensive standpoint, because then all you are doing is rejecting what others offer.
