New Year's Cleanse

laugh, learn, pray, do what you love
Taken from
It is already January 4th and I have meant to write a blog post for the past 9 days. I am continually amazed how time gets away from you when you are not intentional with it. I can be too intentional and schedule my family to death though. I have to try to find balance in that this year. I feel like 2012 was a bit of a loss in this department. I am looking forward to 2013 with great intention. LOL!

As you know, I am facing 2013 with a renewed desire for health. I want my days here on Earth to be energetic and full, not tired and lazy. I want to help people make positive changes in their lives and learn how to live a full life. With that goal in mind I started the year, a little early, with a cleanse. It was time to clear the toxins out and start fresh. Without being too graphic, I will say, there must have been many toxins!!! This has been the hardest cleanse ever!!! I have been sluggish, weak, exhausted. . . how many more words can I come up with to express how tired I feel? I am on day 9 today and cannot wait to eat. Do not get me wrong. I am happy I saw it through. It reminds me I am strong and can do anything I put my mind to. This has taken so much mental strength. I can tell the toxins are releasing because my back pain has subsided and my joints feel much better. There have been many positives. My biggest battle has been my mind; wanting to eat, not because I am hungry, but because I want to sooth myself with food. I am tugging at that root again and it hurts.
Only two more days and I can drink Orange Juice. I do not remember having such a deep longing for OJ before. LOL!
Here’s to living 2013 with intention!!
