I have been on this detox now for 8 days. It has gone really well so far – I can’t believe that I have lost so much weight on it.
A detox is meant to really clean out your system. I feel like my body is a bit like a sponge.
A sponge absorbs all the liquid it comes in contact with and to get rid of it you have to give it a good squeeze. The detox is the squeezing and it’s hard work.
I find that I am not only cleaning out my system I am also cleaning out my emotions, my character, my general demeanour too.
Yesterday it was said while I was at church that our future starts with a small step but it means that we need to dig in order for it to have the right foundations. We can’t let anyone else do it – we need to do it ourselves. To dig can be really hard work but if we do it gives us the foundations for our future.
I find this year that is what I have been doing. I have been making lots of small steps that is leading to bigger steps but it hasn’t come without me digging deep.
Also I feel like a sponge absorbing all the things around me and I find that what comes out after the squeeze is affecting all those around me.
I didn’t plan it but if what I am doing helps others too then it makes my journey totally worthwhile. And that’s a great big bonus!
