Love Note to Self In Moments of Victory

love note to self - remembering the victories of chronic illness

When you are in the joy of victory, take a moment to write yourself a love note. When we have moments of victory during chronic illness, we can use that for days to come when it is not so glorious. Chronic illness is not one big victory, it tons of smaller ones. The victories are hard to remember when we are in the really bad days (or weeks, even months or years) of illness. Love notes to ourselves is a beautiful way to remember, to feel the hope of past victories to help us keep walking through some of the darker days.

Flying Above the Impossibilities, for the Bumblebee and the Chronically Ill

If a bumblebee can fly, so can the chronically ill.

Supposedly the bumblebee’s body size, shape, and weight make it impossible to fly. Being ignorant of those aeronautical facts, the bumblebee flies anyway. There is bumblebee wisdom in tuning out the rumble of the impossibility of flight. Let’s apply that wisdom to the chronically ill. The fortitude of flying above the circumstances, that appear impossible, allows us to focus on the possibilities. Let’s fly, no matter what…

New Year, New View

new year, new view

Every January I am reminded that I get a new chance, kind of like a reset button on my views. We need a lot of new chances because being so ill for so long is such a bizarre experience. You know what it is like, we can easily get lost in the trees and not see the forest. The beginning of each year is like getting to pull all the chaos of chronic illness into meaningful movement. Come on, let’s find the light of hope and move through the trees of chronic illness…

Addicting Avocado Matcha Ice Cream Recipe

Addicting avocado matcha ice cream, dairy-free and sugar-free

Creamy and sweet and seriously addicting. Dairy-free and sugar-free makes this enjoyable for the chronically ill that have so many food restrictions. One of the best things about it is how many different flavors you can make it. I chose to go with the green of the avocado today so I made it Matcha green. But you can use this recipe as a base for any flavor.

Avocado addict, real food, a fruit

Avocados are more of a texture than a taste. The creamy healthy fat can enhance everything from smoothies, to brownies, to spices in guacamole, to dressings or salads.

Full Moon Challenge January 2020

full moon challenge - parasite cleanse

Time to get ready for the Full Moon Challenge. The next full moon will occur on January 10th, 2020 at 2:21 PM ET and is called a Wolf Moon. Parasites have become common because toxicity is more common. Parasites thrive in a toxic body. Parasite mobility is increased during the full moon allowing the cleanse to be most effectively timed. With a decrease in melatonin weakening the immune system and an increase in serotonin enabling parasite mobility, it’s the perfect time to provide your body with extra support to maximize true detox results.
