I remind and read this quote quite often:
"If we want to reconcile with our family or with friends who have hurt us, we have to take care of ourselves first. If we're not capable of listening to ourselves, how can we listen to another person? If we don't know how to recognize our own suffering, it won't be possible to bring peace and harmony into our relationships" - Thich Nhat Hanh
My healing is both inside and out. I have learned that one does not happen without the other. If stress continues to be a factor, then so will sickness in my body. If I continue to distract myself from past hurts, then my present will constantly involve trips to the doctor. It is just that simple for me and I am learning to balance it all out.
In other news, I have finished MY Whole 30. I did not do a whole 30 days, but I thought I would end it today considering this was my anniversary and all. It was rough for me, but towards the end everything balanced out. I lost 2lbs, which isn't much to me, but it was never about the weight anyway. I celebrated today with some primal zucchini brownies and they were delicious, but too sweet. I did not overindulge either, which I credit to my Whole
30 (26). That's all for now.
Breathe and Listen
