Lust for Life

“Curiosity is the lust of the mind.” ― Thomas Hobbes

So much ENERGY in me today!

I heard this song on my radio this morning, and it has completely pumped me up. I feel so renewed these last few weeks.

About 4 weeks ago I started seeing a nutritionist/lifestyle coach. Clean eating – and binging on happy tunes. That’s all I’ve been doing…so far. In those 4 weeks I have lost almost 13 lbs and gained and enormous amount of energy! I am loving the food I am eating, and even my pain is reduced. Funny what eating unprocessed, sugar free food can do for a body…

The first week was a bit miserable – coming off a sugar addiction, coffee, and bad fats, plus a gastroenteritis bug thrown in for fun (good times, not). But since that all finished – my brain fog is less and less, my sleep improved – even my eyes look clearer to others! My skin tone is more even.

I knew all this was possible, but having someone guide you makes all the difference in the world.

I’m not going to fool myself – I know with my MS and depression/anxiety it will always be a battle for me; but I’m armed now and ready for combat.

Curiosity is what lead me to this wonderful person who is helping me. I constantly love to learn. For years that desire took a backburner while illness and responsibilities came to the forefront but man – oh man – am I ever ready to dive back in head first and with all the lust for life that I can manage!

I’ve finally learned to live in the now and it is amazing!

The Child Inside

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Pablo Picasso

We all have a child inside. Some are buried deeper than others. Some bubble to the surface with joyous abandon only to be told by society that they are inappropriate.

We need child like awe and curiosity. We need child like reverence and love. We need child like ability to see no colour and befriend those who need one. We need more exuberance in life, more thrills of the happy kind.

We need more people who throw caution to the wind and dance to their own drums. Those who embrace their inner child with reckless abandon, whilst understanding the needs of others.

We need more Jimmy Fallon playing classroom instruments with bands…this is freaking hilarious.
