i am truly so thankful that i am sitting here, the first day off of my ultimate reset, feeling so motivated, energized, light, and at place of complete and total peace of mind.  i had no clue going into this that it was going to cause so much growth.  and with growth comes discomfort, inevitably. and I'm finally starting to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.  it's the only way I'm able to become a little bit better than i used to be.  it's just the only way. i feel like my growth isn't this steady stream.  rather it grows in one area while lacking greatly in another.  i feel mature in my finances for the first time in my entire adult life, yet immature when i hear words like fart, penis, and poop.  i laugh like at seven-year-old when i hear those words.  then you have seasons where your past can play a huge role in your ...

oh my gracious.  this has been amazing.  but the amazing didn't come without a climb.  it started out with headaches, extreme fatigue, and strength like a lion.  it's ending with natural energy, zero crashes and zero fatigue, but i'm still holding strong with strength like a lion because it takes a strong will to eat 100% whole, clean, and raw while omitting coffee. but it's my last week and i'm in-it-to-win-it.  this has truly been a beautiful journey and i have already noticed some bad habits break and some new habits that are here for keeps.  i will explain that more on a different blog post because it's deep and this post isn't about deep, raw, and vulnerable.  this post is just for sharing a few fav recipes. first up, my fav breakfast, which might seem boring, but after one week of nothing but whole, raw, and zero processed or sugary foods, ...

this is me. a mama trying really hard, daily.  yet falling short every day.  in between the messy and busy I often fall very short.  patience is sheet thin and my voice lacking love and warmth.  those are the days that i am left no choice but to give myself grace and chose to do better tomorrow. and when tomorrow comes, i sip off of that new cup of grace and do just that.  better.  i love harder.  laugh longer.  hug tighter.  and make many deposits that will keep from over-drafting their love accounts. this mama business is about the hardest thing I've ever done.  but it's without a doubt the best part of my life.  i can't imagine not having this kind of love in my heart. this little note is to all you awesome mama's out there who are just really trying your best: while wiping up pee puddles on the floor because you are knee deep in potty training, ...

are you sick of hearing about my ultimate reset journey yet?  i can't help but document it because it's a huge part of my life right now.  in order to fully rid my body of anything toxic and icky, it will undoubtedly come with great sacrifice.  i love that every single thing on this plan is from the earth. meaning: it's from our father in heaven.  the bible says in Genesis, that, "God made the earth, and it was GOOD.". again i say...IT WAS GOOD. then man comes and processes, alters, changes, and chemically tweaks everything.  i believe wholeheartedly that food heals all diseases.  even cancer.  and if you disagree then i totally respect your decision and only ask that you respect mine.  we can totally agree to disagree and still be dudes, right?   this cleanse has me thinking about what goes into my body and my into my children's little ...
