September 13, 2017: Low Energy

Today’s Intentional Transformation: be ok with doing what makes me uncomfortable in order to live my truth.

Dear Diary and Friends,

I have had low energy the past week. I stopped drinking kombucha because I felt like it was a stimulant. Sure enough, my adrenals are healing big time. My joints ache and I keep getting mild headaches. Exactly like when I quit caffeine and I’m sure that kombucha has caffeine in it. I have felt frustrated off and on because it’s hard for me to be ok with resting. I keep catching myself resisting what is. I want to do!! Then I remind myself that rest is a luxury and enjoy it. It’s been great to get in a lot of reading and meditation. I clearly have been told by my inner voice that sticking to fruit and salad is what my body needs for food and to not fast. I tried overriding the fasting part, thinking that fasting would be the best thing to healing my adrenals but my inner voice said no and my inner voice never leads me astray.

I’m very grateful I have help with the greenhouse right now and that gives me extra time to rest. I know this is temporary and will pass. I will feel so freaking good when my body finishing its healing process. I bask in the feeling of vitality and wellness, even if I physically do not see it, I can still feel it! I know what I feel like when I am thriving and I feel that feeling, it makes me smile.

I appreciate adrenals.

I appreciate healing.

I appreciate bananas.

I appreciate storytime.

I appreciate early bed times.

I appreciate listening to my body.

I appreciate honoring my inner voice.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

I appreciate you!

Vibrantly yours,

Victoria
