Living Changed Pt. 2 and Free Book Day

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.

Now for the free book  — FINALLY!     The Gluten Free Good Life focuses on keeping a positive attitude and gives tips for making adjusting to gluten free living easier.  And today January 21st only, it is FREE!  Yes, I said free.  So go to the Amazon Kindle Store and get your copy.

If you have read the book, please consider leaving an honest review on Amazon.  Remember to mention you received the book free if you took advantage of a giveaway.   While you are there, click on my name and please take a look at my other books which are at regular price.

Stay Calm, Be Safe and Enjoy the Eclipse

Happy Monday.  Today is the big day — the Solar Eclipse of 2017. Here are a few tips for you concerning the eclipse.

  1.  If you are traveling today, please drive safely.
  2.  No driving with your cellphone out the window trying to take pictures and no stopping on the side of the road  to view the eclipse.
  3.  Be aware that there may be more traffic on the roads today and drive accordingly.
  4.  If you want to watch the eclipse be sure any eye protection you may be using will actually protect your eyes.
  5.  Consider making a pinhole cardboard device to view the eclipse, or better yet watch live news coverage of the  event.
  6.  Watch out for soothsayers and false prophets trying to instill fear in people over this natural (albeit rare)  occurence.  For more information on this please refer to Bob’s blog post   https://espirational.org/2017/08/14/its-your-choice/

So what are Bob and I doing today?  Well we tend to stay away from large crowds, especially where an outbreak of mass hysteria could possibly occur.  It is also very important that we both protect our eyes right now.  So we are staying off the roads, for the most part staying in and enjoying the NASA TV coverage of the event.  https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-announces-television-coverage-for-aug-21-solar-eclipse

Whatever you are planning to do regarding the eclipse, remember, stay calm, be safe and enjoy!
