I had a rather sobering day today, and for those of you who want to curl up on my proverbial couch and listen, mug of tea in hand, you are more than welcome.
Today I was in a car accident.
It wasn’t a big deal, just a fender-bender, and everyone involved was fine. It’s just that those kind of moments make you examine your life for what it is. It made me think about my job as a receptionist. It made me think about my family and friends. It made me think about my dreams of being a mother someday to a little curly-haired boy who looks just like my husband. It made me think of my faith in my God. It made me think about just how fragile this body really is.
Why does it take something ‘earth-shattering’ to make me think about important things? It’s generally not until I’m sick, or see a threat, that I think about the importance of my health. Please, dear friend, don’t wait to think about these things.
“Rhed, you’re being such a downer!”, says Brain.
“We were just in a freaking car accident!”, answers Adrenaline.
Adrenaline wins. Muahahaha.
Ok. On to food:
Day Two of “Raw Vegan” is as follows:
handful of Snap Peas
Salad made of spinach, yellow peppers, almonds
Organic Peanut butter
Day Two food-wise has been delicious…and yet I want a Panini. I miss hot food. I am really loving all the flavors of the fruit, and I feel great when I’m full, I just don’t think I’m eating quite enough fruit yet. Today I didn’t pack as much for lunch, and when supper-time rolled around I was ready to eat anything I could get my hands on. Thankfully, all I had was organic fruit and veggies- Success! I think I need to research some different raw vegan recipes though, because I can see myself quickly becoming bored. I tried some raw Asparagus. Boy did that leave something to be desired… On the plus side, my teeth haven’t been sensitive at all today.
Stay awesome, folks.
