I have to be honest with you guys. I get people asking for help every single day, and I love hearing from my readers and helping whom I can, but I’ve also noticed a common trend among many people who contact me. So many have the desire to get better but never act. So many people can’t give up bread, or their morning coffee, or their weekly splurge on doughnuts. They don’t believe they have to follow a certain protocol, or believe they are exempt because of a special situation, but then they beg me to tell them what they need to do to get better anyway.
The problem with this is, 1. The info is already there, and 2. You are never going to get better if you let something (yourself) hold you back.
We live in an age of technology. If you want the answers to your specific problems, you can find them! I found mine without the help of my own website (ha) and was able to heal COMPLETELY. I promise, if you’re going through something, someone else has gone through it too. That’s a huge reason I’ve created this website, but I also don’t know the answers to everything and don’t understand everyone’s specific problems. That is why you need to trust yourself and trust your body to tell you what it needs and to heal itself, and you will find everything you need to get better!
Now, on letting things hold you back, DON’T. Don’t let something you like hold you back from something you love! Or even more, don’t let something you love hold you back from something you LIVE for! And the easiest way to determine what your priorities are is to look at your actions, or what you spend your time doing.
If you love diet coke more than your health, you will take diet coke over a healthy life. If you aren’t willing to learn how to cook healthy meals, you will eat unhealthy meals your entire life. If you are unwilling to take the time to heal, whether that be time away from your job, school, social life, television, Facebook, whatever it is, you will never find the time to get better. Some people simply have so many questions about their problems that they never take the information they already have and act on it. You already have the information you need to heal. So many people make excuses, and that’s why so many people don’t heal, but YOU CAN BE DIFFERENT.
Here’s the thing, you are only going to get better if you do something about your situation. Nobody is going to spoon feed you. Nobody is going to come in and do everything for you, or provide every unique answer to every single question you have (unless you pay lots of money). Only YOU can decide if you’re going to get better or not, and how you decide is where you place your priorities. If you make getting better a priority (which it should be), you will find the time, means and information you need to get better. If you don’t place healing as a priority, or never take a step towards getting better, you’ll never get there!
Getting better comes by taking small (but visible) steps toward your goal, not dreaming about the day you will.
Here’s a story: When I began my healing process, I was on scholarship at my dream university, and I practically stopped going to classes, used a loan to pay for my food and supplements, learned how to cook, and did a lot of research to get better, spent time dancing, journaling and meditating, and made getting better a priority! I realize that if I wanted to get better, I had to take healing into my own hands, so I did! I found the time, means, and ability to get better because I wanted it bad enough.
I know so many people have so many responsibilities, but look at how you spend your time and you’ll find you probably spend a lot more time watching tv or on social media or doing something that’s unnecessary that instead you could be using to ACT on your goals. I know you can get better, now all you have to do is DO it.
SO, today, you are going to take a step towards getting your life back. Whether that’s deleting your favorite tv show and replacing it with wholesome ingredients in your fridge (so you can learn how to cook and eat that yumminess!) or throwing out the soda in your pantry, you start today. Stop surfing the web for gritty details and ACT on what you already know.
Stop making excuses and just DO.
