Having a Support System

Today’s Intentional Transformation: Every time I choose, that choice is an evaluation of myself. I choose love.

Dear Diary and Friends,

Today was fruitluck day. I love love love getting together with other fruit lovers. People who eat a high fruit diet have a different way of thinking. They are putting a lot of beautiful vibrant energy into their bodies and people that eat that way tend to be calm, peaceful and loving. So we all get together and give each other encouragement and love, accepting each other where we are. It’s when I refill and spend time with my tribe.

I’ve found over the years of being a raw vegan that having a support system in very important when making big changes in your life, like changing how you eat. I talk more about it in the video below.

Breakfast: celery, cucumber, apple and bell pepper juice.

Lunch: fresh squeezed oj, grapes, watermelon and cherry tomatoes.

Dinner: banana strawberry coconut water smoothie.

I appreciate fruitlucks.

I appreciate support.

I appreciate friends.

I appreciate growth.

I appreciate watermelon.

I appreciate celery

I appreciate love.

I appreciate dirt.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

I appreciate you!

Lovingly yours,

Victoria

Clearing Out The Greenhouse

Today’s Intentional Transformation: Through faith I give myself the gift of freedom from the past.

Dear Diary and Friends,

We are about halfway finished clearing out the greenhouse. I’m really excited to get everything planted into my yard and show it to y’all. I’m also looking forward to stepping outside my door and harvesting fresh food. My friend and roommate Charlie does work for partial trade and partial rent. He had been working way more than expected getting everything moved out of the greenhouse and planting it in the yard. I am incredibly grateful to have his help. There is no way I could get everything cheated out by October 1st on my own.

This morning I dug up the rest of the trees in the greenhouse and put them in pots. I also dug up all the herbs and got them ready to move. When I was leaving the greenhouse I noticed that the alignment o had gotten done on my daughter’s car a couple months ago hadn’t worked. The brand new tire I bought was almost totally bald on the inside. I was immediately irritated. I drove to the shop but the owner wasn’t in and I was told he would call me within a half hour. I came home and noticed that Charlie had cut up and eaten some of my watermelon. I knew that he had gotten confused about the watermelon that was already in the fridge that I had told him last night he could have. Since I was already irritated I decided to add this to my list of irritations. I sent him a message and then decided to call him. He told me he had gotten confused and I decided that I wasn’t really irritated with him after all, he has been nothing but honest and helpful since he arrived 3 weeks ago. I told him I understood and later messaged him that it was all ok and that I hadn’t communicated clearly.

I laid down for a while and  relaxed by reading and resting. Then I remembered that I was supposed to get a call back from the mechanic. I chose to be briefly irritated again, though I didn’t really have the heart for it. I know that everything happens because it is supposed to and that thought comforted me. I called the mechanic but there was no answer. So I loaded Angel up and drove to the shop. The owner was there. He looked at the tires and said to bring it in on Monday and he would fix the alignment. Great!

We came back home and I had a good phone conversation with a friend. Then I drove to George’s. We all went swimming at the YMCA. This was our first time going swimming with George and we all had a lot of fun. I took a video of Angel playing in the water to have a lighthearted video for today. We got back, I cleaned the bathrooms and front porch while Angel played with George. Then I watched “Daniel Tigers Neughborhood” with Angel and George while I wrote my blog. I stated an hour later at George’s because his girlfriend is out of town.

Now it’s time to head home.

Breakfast: banana strawberry smoothie

Lunch: banana strawberry smoothie.

Dinner: a handful of raw peanuts.

I appreciate coaching clients.

I appreciate love.

I appreciate flowers.

I appreciate clouds.

I appreciate swimming.

I appreciate gratitude.

I appreciate trees.

Enjoying Friends at Games Night

Today’s Intentional Transformation: pain is deception. Joy is truth. I am joyful. I live my truth.

Dear Diary and Friends,

Tonight was game night at my house. I love having people over to play board games or card games. A new friend I met out here in small town Texas joined us for game night. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer and is changing his life to heal. He is going vegan and is already noticing the health benefits. I am so glad he came so he could connect with other vegans and hear there heal stories. I fed him a raw vegan spaghetti with zoodles dinner and gave him a book to read. I posted a video of everyone sharing their health journey below.

Breakfast: 2 blended sugar kiss melons.

Lunch: 8 banana, 1 peach, coconut water smoothie.

Goodbye Beloved Greenhouse

Today’s Intentional Transformation: Time has no anxieties or worries. Time is perfectly calm and only happens now. Live peacefully in the moment.

Dear Diary and Friends,

This morning I decided to give up having the greenhouse. I had been thinking about giving it up for a while and this morning the thought felt so light and freeing that I went ahead and made a final decision. I called the owners and told them, they understood and were fine with it. Now I’m going to start pulling the trees out and planting them in my yard. I am very excited about being able to focus on making my yard a tropical paradise.

I explain more in the video below. I am too tired to write it all out tonight, I have been up since 4:30am and my mind is falling asleep. Lol

I appreciate the greenhouse.

I appreciate clarity.

I appreciate meeting new people.

I appreciate early bedtime.

I appreciate bananas.

I appreciate the color pink.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

I appreciate you!

Sleepily yours,

Victoria

Forgiveness

Today’s Intentional Transformation: Illusions do not battle with truth. They only battle with themselves. I choose truth. I am peace.

Dear Diary and Friends,

Forgiveness is important because it is about ourselves and never about the other person. It’s about the energy we choose to have inside of us. When we choose to carry anger, bitterness or resentment inside of ourselves then we are not able to be the love that is who we are. We are in a state if resisting love. Resisting love is really quite silly if you think about it because it causes suffering within oursejves. Does it make sense choose to continue to suffer because of an act committed by another suffering person? It doesn’t really add up but choosing to forgive and end the suffering inside ourselves makes a lot of sense. Choosing not to forgive doesn’t hurt the other person, it only hurts ourselves. Love yourself, have peace and harmony within yourself and thrive.

Today was my day off. I read to myself, read to Angel, took a long nap and had a wonderful meditation time.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner was cooked lentils with cabbage. Once in a great while I eat cooked food but then I’m always reminded of how much lighter and vibrant I feel eating raw and that eating fresh is my truth. I like reminders! I’m looking forward to getting back to my beloved fresh fruit and veggies tomorrow.

I appreciate the color red.

I appreciate pomegranate blooms on my tree.

I appreciate cabbage.

I appreciate naps.

I appreciate help with the greenhouse.

I appreciate Savana watching Angel.

I appreciate music club.

I appreciate forgiveness.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

I appreciate you!

Delightfully yours,

Victoria

Fear of Failure

Today’s Intentional Transformation: perceive all things with love, appreciation and open-mindedness.

Dear Diary and Friends,

I learn a lot from Angel baby. She has absolutely no fear of failure. I watch her practice learning how to do things, she fails time and time again but continues to practice until she succeeds. Then she yells…”I did it, I did it”.  I’ve started doing that myself, every time I succeeded at doing a handstand, I yell, “I did it, I did it”. Every time I choose to eat food that my inner voice tells me is going to allow me to thrive, I yell, “I did it, I did it”. Every time I choose to take time to meditate every morning, I say, “I did it, I did it”. I’ve learned that celebrating my successes, even the small things makes me want to keep succeeding. The only way I ever even succeed in the first place is because I am willing to fail. I keep practicing, I keep trying, I keep telling myself I can do it. I don’t get down on myself for making mistakes. I don’t get down on myself for not following my inner voice all the time. I simply keep trying and whatever we practice we get better at. I accept that I am imperfectly perfect and life is a journey. I will fail and I’m ok with that because I wouldn’t succeed without it.

Today’s food: breakfast: 8 banana/strawberry/coconut water smoothie.

Lunch: 4 banana nice cream.

Dinner: a handful of pecans that gave me a tummy ache so I didn’t eat my usual salad.

I appreciate failure.

I appreciate success.

I appreciate morning, afternoon and evening walks.

I appreciate bananas.

I appreciate breath.

I appreciate whistling.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

I appreciate you!

Successfully yours,

Victoria

Facing The Fear of Rejection

Today’s Intentional Transformation: Health is the result of relinquishing all attempts to use the body lovelessly. I am love.

Dear Diary and Friends,

I’ve been enjoying facing my fears lately. It is invigorating! Today I focused on facing my fear of rejection. As I thought about the fear of rejection, I could clearly see how silly it is. There is no way to expect to never be rejected for anything or by anyone. Not every person is going to like us all of the time or want us in their lives all of the time. To expect to never be rejected is setting ourselves up for needless suffering. When we are fully living our truth and have confidence in ourselves then rejection does not stop up from following our inner guidance. Rejection just means that the person or situation is not meant to be the door for us at that time. It means we are meant to go a different road or have access to different people. Rejection is a tool for clarity. It is never personal. It’s about what the other person or people are allowing into their life experience. Anytime you are rejected in anyway, simply accept that person or position or whatever is not meant to be at that moment. Continue on, following your truth and going through doors that do open up. Those are the ones meant for you.

Today was fruitluck day. I woke up at 4:30 and then went back to sleep at 7am. I woke again at 8:30am and rushed around getting ready to go to the fruitluck, trying to not be late. It was exhausting and even though we were going to be late, I took 5 minutes to be alone and meditate before leaving.

On the drive there, I had my friend and roommate Charlie drive, we listened to “Change your Thoughts, Change your Life”, by Wayne Dyer. I didn’t feel very well. I felt nauseous and tired. When we got to the fruitluck, I went to the bathroom and had a big poop. All of a sudden I felt better. Yay! The fruitluck was amazing as always. I had great conversations, ate lots of fruit and enjoyed swimming.

Then I went to work for George. I thoroughly cleaned the floors while I was there and drank a 64oz. banana/strawberry/coconut water smoothie. After work, Charlie drove us home and we listened to fun music. At home I ate a smallish salad with one head of red leaf lettuce, cherry tomatoes, a few pecans and lemon tahini dressing. Airbnb guests arrived. I got them settled in and went to bed.

I was a beautiful day!

I appreciate swimming.

I appreciate fruitlucks.

I appreciate persimmons.

I appreciate poop.

I appreciate meditation.

I appreciate connections.

I appreciate rejection.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

I appreciate you!

Gratefully yours,

Victoria

Be Confident Because You Are Imperfect

If you feel called to share a gift because you enjoy this blog and feel it has transformed your life. I will receive it humbly and with gratitude. Your gift will be blessed and come back to you multiplied.

Today’s Intentional Transformation: when I judge others I lose myself. I am love and have no need to protect myself with judgement.

Dear Diary and Friends,

There has been a big shift in me. For the first time in my life I feel fully confident in myself and I trust myself. I saw how I had been using my past as an excuse to not live my truth fully. I had been feeding the fears of having an imperfect past and allowing that to stop me from embracing my greatness. Then an awareness of that shifted me and I dropped the fears. I firmly decided that nothing is going to stop me from following my intuition. I will allow my creative flow of ideas to be put into action fearlessly, even if this means stepping out of my comfort zone, which I have been doing. I am willing to stand on the edge and jump knowing without a doubt that I will catch myself. It’s envigirating to live like this. I feel so alive and inspirational.

Today’s meals: breakfast 16oz. fresh squeezed oj and one sugar kiss melon.

Lunch: 64oz. banana/strawberry/coconut water smoothie. Drank slowly for 3 hours.

Dinner. A head of romaine lettuce. 1/4 head of green cabbage. A small package of mushrooms. 2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes. 2 tablespoons of lemon tahini dressing. Io

I appreciate salad.

I appreciate a long nap.

I appreciate Charlie.

I appreciate a big order for cinnamon rolls.

I appreciate grocery stores.

I appreciate time with Savana.

I appreciate singing.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

September 14, 2017: Living My Truth

If you ever feel called to share a gift of appreciation for my daily blog. I would be honored. Everything that comes to me is truly a blessing.

 

Today’s Intentional Transformation: Have faith in myself. I have all the answers inside of me.

Dear Diary and Friends,

I am feeling back to my inspirational self today. I knew that cutting out caffeinated kombucha was going to take my health up to another level. My inner voice told me it would. I also knew that resting during the detox faze and trusting my body to heal in its own time was my truth. So I did just that. When I was going through the detox I didn’t have the creative inspiring thoughts that I usually have. My mind was in rest mode and not creative mode. I found myself attempting to feed depressing thoughts at times, such as, “I’m never going to get better” or “I’m not strong enough to make it through this”, but I knew those thoughts were lies and not my truth so I gave them no power. Then this morning I woke up feeling my inner purr going full force. My creative mind was giving me all kinds of fun thoughts and my body had the energy to put those thoughts into action. Yes! Yes! Yes!

After taking Savana to school, eating a breakfast of 2 sugar kiss melons and biking with Angel Baby to a well child appointment, (where she was pronounced to be in astounding good health), I headed to the swimming hole with Angel Baby and my new roommate Charlie. The water was high from hurricane Harvey and it was absolutely delightful to swim in. It was cold and fresh and felt invigorating. We skipped rocks, meditated and had splashing fun. I practiced hand stands underwater to feel my balance point easier. Beautiful, colorful dragon flies were all around and sometimes would land on one of us and say hello. We played for a couple of hours before heading home.

Back at home, Angel napped and I made kale chips, zucchini chips and I tried out a new recipe for dehydrated cookies. I will find out tomorrow how they turned out. So exciting! It smelled so good with all the yummy snacks in the dehydrators. I juiced a bunch of oranges and got 64oz. of juice. Yay! I cleaned up the kitchen, then I sat down and made some phone calls while I drank a 9 banana, strawberry, coconut water smoothie. Angel Baby woke up and ate some raw oats with raisins. Then she played outside in the backyard with the cats for a while and I made a couple more phone calls.

My friend Bebe came home and my other roommates all came out into the kitchen and we all had a really fun time talking and laughing. I just love to laugh, it feels so good! Better than sex! Lol. I made 4 banana, 4 strawberry nice cream for dinner and ate it while we all chatted and goofed off until it was bedtime. Then I took a cold shower with Angel Baby…yes she loves cold showers too..lol. We went to bed and Angel nursed but didn’t go to sleep and I wrote my blog.

It was a delightful day.

I appreciate rivers.

I appreciate friends.

I appreciate hand stands.

I appreciate laughter.

I appreciate poop.

I appreciate bicycles.

I appreciate dragon flies.

I appreciate the color purple.

Thank you for being a part of my life.
