Yesterday I talked about how making changes can be easier than living with them. Today I want to talk to those who may be feeling forced to make changes for health reasons that you really don’t want to make. Maybe your doctor says you have to lose weight. Or that special diet to treat or prevent a medical condition is just too drastic for you to want to consider. Well I have experienced this one
Confession of a Drama Queen
Before I began the gluten free lifestyle I was convinced there would be nothing left to eat but twigs and tree bark. In fact there is a rumor going around that I was spotted in the front yard threatening to eat a tree. But the last 10 years of living gluten free have taught me that attitude really is everything and can turn what at first seems a huge negative into something that is actually positive.
Looking for the Good
It took awhile for me to see that not eating certain foods helps me live a happy and healthy life. It is a good thing. While learning the gluten-free lifestyle and making it my way of life took time there is no way I would cheat now. No bread, cookie or cake is good enough to make it worth the price of poor health.
Staying on the Path
Looking at my way of life as the way to healing and wholeness keeps me on the path. Focusing on and being grateful for the good in life, even if it means looking really hard to find one good thing, will make it easier to see the good that still exists in our lives and in the world. We may even be able to see what we saw as “bad” as stepping-stones or lessons.
