a squirrel told me i must be more careful of the way i eat.
wait, i’m not crazy. let me explain.
last night i had a crazy dream where a squirrel bitten me (first time as a dreamer. ok, on this lifetime).
and that image was so present in my mind that i had to look what that meant.
the web said i had some relationship problems, or that i was pursuing the wrong things. that didn’t feel right.
so i went on for other explanations and somewhere i found that the best way to know is by meditating and asking our animal totems. (i’m a big fan of journaling and i know meditation works so…)
well, i don’t know if you believe in spirit animals. i don’t know if i do, but i gave it a try.
i asked my totem what that image meant and instantly i felt a bad sensation on my stomach.
i felt the answer was given: i wasn’t treating my body the way it should. i need to be more careful of the way i eat.
and that’s true, lately i’ve not been eating intentionally. just what comes easy at the time. but it’s never easy to mistreat our bodies, is it?
remember my #aweekwithnomeat challenge? do you want to know how it went?
don’t be too excited. i fell miserably.
right on the second day, i ate meat. and couldn’t get back on track because i was too ashamed.
but i did learn an old lesson: i wasn’t prepared. i had the idea and jumped right away without having all i needed at the reach of my hands.
to avoid pitfalls, i’ve done a week list worth of meals. and all the ingredients i need for them.
all in all, i got 34 of them. including spices. there’s no meat, no fish and almost no animal products (i still use milk and eggs on occasion).
i don’t know if i’m being too harsh on myself.
but at least now i have a guideline that i can follow or change as needed.
no one said going vegan, or being healthy, would be easy. but it’s way more painless than not enjoying what you see on the mirror, or how you feel in your body.
now that summer is over for some of us, what are you doing for your health? share on the comments!
