We become what we think

I’ve gone through ups and downs in my life and every time I’m in a low, it’s because I’m too in my head and thinking everything negative will happen so it does. Time and time again, the universe has proven to me that when you think positively, good things will come. Because of this, I truly believe that the energy you put out into the world determines the type of energy you receive.

Life is a compilation of experiences

Life is made up of experiences, good and bad. They’re what shape us and make us who we are. Everyone’s journey is unique. It’s easy to get caught up in work, or life in general, that you forget to take the time for the experiences you work so hard for.

What impact do you have?

The impact you have on others or the world can be large and/or small. The most important thing to having an impact is to be authentic. You don’t know the level your actions, or non-actions, will have on another person which puts a lot of responsibility on you to always strive to make your impact a positive one.

My biggest problem: prioritizing my career over health

Deep down, I know I really should take the 30 days off to get healthy and it’s sad that I put my career first. Even as I write this, I don’t know if I’m going to take the time I know I need. Part of me wants to prove I can do it all but who am I trying to impress? It’s only me who truly knows the pain and struggle I’m going through.

Food as medicine

The universe works in mysterious ways, though. While waiting for my Postmates order Wednesday, I was searching Amazon for a food competition show and one of the options that came up (because I only searched “Food”) was Food As Medicine which immediately caught my attention. It’s a documentary about the use of food to heal chronic illness and disease. Not even 30 minutes in, I sent a text to my sister and step-mom to check it out.

If you’re not worth their time, don’t waste yours

This is a lesson that has been really hard for me in both friendships and romantic relationships. One of my biggest pet peeves is having someone flake and for some reason, I never set this boundary with others. The more I learn about how to love myself, the more I realize that my need for validation from others is the reason I’ve allowed people to disrespect me and my time.

Be happy and be mindful

When I woke up this morning, I was in a great mood. Had I not done this self-reflection before going to sleep, I know I would have been in a bad headspace today given the spiral of negative thoughts I was having.

Had wine, bread and avocado. Oops!

Almost immediately after my first few sips of wine, I could feel my stomach begin to turn. An avocado toast I used to eat regularly (sometimes 2 orders in 1 sitting), I was barely able to stomach half and the BLT, only a few bites. It’s only been a few days of low-FODMAP and my body is already rejecting some of the high-FODMAP foods I love.
