Okay, I think we should take a moment to take a big deep breathe.
Now that we’ve taken a breathe, my life is taking me on quite the journey right now. My house may have mold, or something in my house is definitely perpetuating my health issues. I need to decide where I’m going to move now that I’ve decided I’m going to take a semester off from school. I’m currently feeling the deep repercussions of not taking care of my burnout and am currently learning how to ask for help when I can longer “push harder”. I’m feeling a life-calling coming on in the form of educating others around the effects of living in a world of toxins and in a society that refuses to acknowledge systemic issues. So, yeah…meditate on that, folks.
I have been drinking a smoothie that has been fueling me in this time of serious adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalance, digestive distress, and just a general state of being inflamed. It contains collagen powder, matcha powder, moringa powder, frozen pineapple, chunk of ginger, grapefruit juice, and a touch of almond milk. It’s packed with micronutrients like vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, and many other antioxidants. It’s so anti-inflammatory that I’ve felt a physical difference from drinking this smoothie throughout my week. Sometimes I’ll change up this smoothie by adding a chunk of turmeric or using blueberries instead of pineapple. As you see below, I’ll drink a smoothie in rain or shine (or snow!). Obviously, the focus is not on my smoothie, but that I’m drinking a smoothie when there is snow outside. I’m sure y’all have seen enough spotless pictures of green smoothies, but how about a blurry picture and SNOW!
“Don’t look for any other state than the one you are in now; otherwise , you will set up inner conflict and unconscious resistance. Forgive yourself for not being at peace. The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace.” The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle
