I don't believe that I've ever felt the desire to change as much as I feel right now. A total recharge of my mind, body, and soul is so necessary at this point in my life and I can no longer ignore the call to make those changes immediately. My body has been telling me for over a year now to change my diet. Our physical man depends on certain vitamins and nutrients to stay healthy and ward off diseases and when there's a lack of those, we feel it. We feel exhausted, grumpy, bloated, hurt, tired and the list goes on. Instead of stopping and taking the necessary steps to give it what it needs, we complain about the ailments that we develop and continue abusing ourselves over and over again.
Our mind and spirit work the same way. When we become over burdened with things, it tends to affect us in ways that we can't image. Our basic day to day task become obstacle courses, boggled down with a fleet of unnecessary thoughts and worries.
Well this is what my life has been feeling like lately and I just can't do it anymore and if you've been feeling this way, you shouldn't either. I've decided to go on a 21 day fast from all processed foods and meat. Basically, I will be consuming only raw foods. Although I've made several attempts in the past to do this, now it's no longer an option. I don't think that I can another week causing anymore harm to myself than I've already done. We have to take accountability for some of the ailments that we have because of our way of living. Our lack of discipline has created a personal environment of pleasure seeking. We fill ourselves with unhealthy food, thoughts, and wonder why we lack peace. Emptying ourselves of the toxins that we've accumulated overtime will begin to free us in all kind of ways.
I can't wait to start this journey tomorrow and if you've been feeling as bad as I have lately, I'm hoping that you'll walk this path with me and document it. I'll be posting regularly on how things are going so stay toned.
Peace and Love folks

As I take this journey, I constantly find myself doubting if I'm taking the right steps. Nothing has to be going wrong when these thoughts of insecurity arise but I still allow them to steal my focus away from the thing in which I'm trying to accomplish. In this, I know I'm not alone. Many people who have started their own businesses or set their minds to accomplish a goal have experienced this same kind of doubt, but instead of calling it doubt, I will just say fear.
Often when we step out on faith, we start out strong and courageous. Then somewhere down the line we start to feel anxiety. Is it possible for me to actually succeed? The answer is Yes! The fear and anxiety that we experience is due to us finally breaking away from what others have told us we could do. So when we're faced with an opportunity to excel beyond that point, we self doubt. When those feelings arise, it's up to us to speak life and affirm within that "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13). We have the power to take control over our thoughts and turn them around for our betterment.
So as we take our separate paths, remember that doubt doesn't mean stop. Keep going, keep pressing. You're steps away from living your purpose.
Please remember to share. Thank you.
