Happy fall everyone! It’s absolutely beautiful here in Nebraska. Very autumn-like. I can’t wait for the leaves to start changing.
I keep mentioning something shifting in my last few posts and I still feel it. Maybe it’s the change of the seasons, maybe it’s just that I’ve opened my mind and my perspective on a lot of things has definitely changed. I’ve become willing to open my mind and my heart to a lot things I never dreamed I would before.
I’ve decided to look into holistic healing for my schizo-affective disorder. I’m not necessarily going to go down that road, but I want to know more. I found a place here that does a lot of work with the mentally ill. The woman I’m meeting with on Monday even published her findings in an international journal. Sounds pretty good to me.
I’ve also asked my chiropractor to help me research links between diet and mental illness. I’ve done some searching on my own and I’ve found a few things, but I can’t make much sense of it. I’m sure she’ll have a field day with that subject and be glad to help. (I haven’t heard back from her yet.) I’m definitely ready to make some changes to how I eat. Now that I find myself picking up fast food more often than not… It’s just bad. I used to eat very well. Now it’s just unhealthy food after unhealthy food.
I’ve been looking up information on eating organic/natural foods on a budget and I’ve found some really fantastic information. And I’ve found some really fantastic coupons. I think I can accomplish this. And this time I’m doing this because I want to, not because I feel like I have to. And I’m not going to try to force these ideas on the rest of my family. They can eat what they want, I’ll eat what I want. I’ll be doing most of the cooking anyway. And I am so excited to cook!
My two week shopping fast is almost over. I’m not saying I’m going to go crazy or anything. In fact, things are going to be pretty tight in October. But it’s okay, I know the universe has my back. I already have everything I need. The rest is just details. But I’m really looking forward to going back to the grocery store and pricing some things, making a couple of shopping lists, figuring out coupons… I’m going to have a plan instead of just blowing all of my money because it feels good to get that rush. I’m not good at math so I got a couple of apps on my phone that will do a budget and a shopping list for me.
Change is in the air. And for the first time, it isn’t scary. I’m not going to resist. I’m just going to move with it.
