Mary lived on a farm with 3 horses, 5 goats, 2 dogs and 5 cats. It was a peaceful existence, but highly isolating. She hardly ever saw her friends and felt lonely. For two years, she pondered a move, but felt terribly guilty about leaving her animals and fearful if her life would actually end up better in a more urban environment.
Change is extraordinarily difficult because it causes a loss and a fear of the unknown. Most people decide to live with the discomfort of the known than to take the leap of faith to a situation that can potentially cause more pain and suffering.
When I heard Mary’s story, it made me think of the hundreds of people I know who were afraid to do a raw juice cleanse because of their fear of the unknown. What is a raw juice cleanse? Would I starve? Is it just a fad? Do I lose control of my life? How much discomfort will this cause me?
To answer those questions: if done the right way, you will not starve and you will feel energetic, balanced and in control, finally!I love when people complete it they feel such a sense of accomplishment from sticking wiht a healthy eating plan and a sense that they can achieve their life goals, whether it be to lose weight, continue to eat a plant rich diet, take a step back to slow down and enjoy life.
Take that leap of faith! It may be the best gift you could give yourself!
