It’s New Years Resolution Time!


I LOVE New Years.  Not for the parties or the dresses….and certainly not for the drinks or the food…..I love New Years resolutions.  This year will mark 19 years of no alcohol, 12 years of no cigarettes, with a few exceptions, about 8 without the gum, 7 years of no sugar/no flour, coffee is out of the picture….and so much more.  They didn’t all go right at New Years…alcohol did and the other things on many occasions, but may not have stuck until later in the year…but so what?  I love to improve, I love to be free of addictions, I love to make lists of goals and check them at the end of the year and now it’s that time again : )  We have a group doing a 21 day cleanse that will begin on the 9th.  I’m going to start on the 1sth though since I’m the leader and want to be at my best for the other people….a good leader : )  This year I’m going to crank it up a notch.  I’m going totally raw for the 21 days, maybe for more, but definitely the 3 weeks, and I’m jazzed.  What I really enjoy about the New Years cleanse, or Daniel fast is the clarity I get, the surrender and  closeness to God.  I’m not sure why what I eat or don’t eat has such an impact on my emotions, mental state and spiritual state, but it really does.  Earlier today I realized that I don’t think that I could have stuck to the no sugar/no flour eating without a guide….that way of living was foreign to me and would have been temporary….just like raw food has been, I get to my goal, then go back to the way I was eating before, so does that mean that I need to stay raw?  I don’t know, but I’m going to ask for clarity during this cleanse.  I have gotten to a higher level of trust with God  and if I feel that He is guiding me to do it, then He will show me the way and I will.  It seems so radical….but so did living without sugar and flour.  I always feel so good when I do the cleanses, a heightened awareness, more energy, a calmness and security that is deeper than normal….so it does make me wonder.  For now, I’m committing to 3 weeks…and looking forward to it….of course I will let you know how it’s going : )  What are your goals for the year?  Are you as excited as I am?  Oh, I almost forgot!  Last year, I was so hooked on Pepsi Max that I didn’t let go of it for the cleanse/fast, but I put it on my list asking God to remove it from me…..Thank you God, I haven’t had any in several months : )
