We’re All Teachers

Copyright 2016 by R.A. Robbins

“I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.”

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.

Ends are Not Bad Things…

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“Ends are not bad things, they just mean that something else is about to begin. And there are many things that don’t really end, anyway, they just begin again in a new way. Ends are not bad and many ends aren’t really an ending; some things are never-ending.”
