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!

To live

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” Oscar Wilde (Source: Goodreads).

I wonder sometimes if I am truly living my life or just watching it go by, existing without knowing I am just existing. Oblivious to true life, to sense and abilities.

I see some people and they seem to have such a lust for life. Everything they do is filled with passion and fueled by an inner fire I can only imagine. I want to feel that fire and let it burn through me.

I think I used to feel it. It was a long time ago. Whenever I dreamed of being an archaeologist or working on a dig. Sometimes when I dreamt of writing, any kind of writing. But my fire is a barely glowing ember that loses itself with every passing year.

Maybe I can still ignite it. Maybe…
