I want to talk about something pretty real with you guys today. I want to talk about how healing takes PATIENCE.
I know many of you are frustrated with your skin, dealing with chronic acne, as well as so many other symptoms that have stripped your confidence.
And so you start this healing diet full of fruits and veggies, you have high hopes, and you’ve been working sooo dang hard to stay on track!
And yet, days, weeks, and months pass— & somehow nothing seems to be changing. In fact, your skin is looking even worse than it did before.
This must not be working, right!?? You start to question yourself & this information.
You get frantic and start looking for other answers.
But wait. Please— stop right there!! I know this process. I’ve been there. I get it and want to help you understand what is happening.
Your body is working hard to clear out all the toxins which is why things seem to be worse.
Take the image that Anthony William uses of the dirty fish tank. When you start to clean it, the water gets stirred up and things seem even dirtier!
Or the visual that Whitney DeMaria uses of remodeling a house! And how as you begin this process things get MESSY. You work, room by room, ripping out old appliances and replacing them with new ones. It takes time for this house to feel like home.
Please, don’t give up. I have experienced firsthand how slow this can be— but how over time it dramatically changed my life for the best. Slow things down if you need to. Fruits especially, are very powerful!! Add more steamed veggies in if it’s too much.
Because healing takes time, it’s vital to keep your vision of your future-self strong. She/he is the one who will be thanking you for sticking it through the hard stuff! Hang onto that vision with all you’ve got. The journey may not be easy but you WILL get there.
I am rooting for you all the way!
