Did you know that a celery juicer costs over $300? Are you aware or are you part of the celery juice craze? Please google it, apparently it is way beyond just green juice, and good for almost everything! I am always in awe of what becomes a part of something that we not only want, but need in our life. As we get older, we really cannot ignore our body, because if we do not address it immediately, it may get worse. For me worse is not an option, I want to feel and look my best, why not have it all?
This has been a whirlwind week, ever since the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashana, we all went back to work and school, but are preparing for Yom Kippur that starts tonight, and soon after Sukkot, where we eat in our outside huts built with our own hands. As a Doula, I never know when a baby chooses to come into this world. Sunday evening I was needed, birth takes time, it was beautiful, it is my purpose, I feel recharged and naturally high. It does take me a couple of days to recover and get fully rested, but luckily with my flexible schedule I squeeze in a nap and make sure I go to sleep early. In California we had an election, I choose only to vote in person, I want to see my vote cast, so I picked up my youngest from school, we ran to the voting site and got our sticker. Then I had to take my husband to an appointment, pick up my other kids from school, and deal with everyone’s energies. Honestly a 30 hour labor and birth is more relaxing than family dynamics for me.
How I function, how I manage, and how I stay sane is to be grateful for all the good in my life. It is really the only way to see the pros versus the cons. Life is going to keep moving, look at this past year! Nobody could have predicted it, and I was one of the people with my positive outlook that never realized how it changed the world until it did. I still choose to be present, have faith and trust, and to revel in my blessings and beauty in my life.
Why choose the alternative.
Why live in yesterday and tomorrow?
All we have is now.
Wishing all my brothers and sisters a sweet year full of happiness, health, success and love.
May you be signed and sealed in the book of life.
Am I going to buy the celery juicer?
I have to weigh the pros and cons and see if any of my other gagdets will do the trick.
I deserve it all.
I work hard.
I give my all.
Repeat after me:
I love myself, I am amazing, I am doing my best, it is ok where I am, I will trying moving in the right direction, learning every step of the way everywhere I go.
