This week I am scheduled for jury duty. You know the drill. Call each day to see if you have to go in. I called Sunday and they said to call back on Monday at noon. I called again, they said to call back later today at 6:30 pm. Oh the agony of not knowing! I am a person who thrives best on order and schedules. This not knowing how my week will play out is pure torture. But then I pause for moment, take breath. Why am I so afraid of being in limbo with my schedule? Is it the not knowing? Is it the fear of the bad weather expected the next few days? Is it how am I going to going to eat? To drive there? It is all of it! But, what it really boils down to, is being afraid of not only not knowing, but the lack of control that I have in this situation. Again, I am a woman who likes to be in control with all my boxes checked off or scheduled! So, how do I deal with this situation? I reminded myself of how I felt about 6 months ago when I started working with my nutritionist on healing my gut. And how once I let go of my fear, I was able thrive on the program and learn so much about food.
This afternoon I realized that having a change in my schedule is not so bad. This will teach me to go with the flow and know that I am safe, grounded and still in control of many things in my life.
Perhaps this week of jury duty will help me to let go of my dependence on my consistent schedule. To let go of my need to be in control of the flow of my life. Because in the end, fear just paralyzes us and keeps us from growing, evolving and progressing.
Next month I am giving a workshop on Food & Nutrition and it’s effect on inflammation in the body. This is a hot topic right now. Many people have been asking me questions about what I am doing and what am I eating. I am doing this workshop to not only educate you on this topic, but to help you take the fear out of changing your diet. Trust me, I know change is hard, but imagine the possibility of having less joint pain or tummy pain by giving up dairy, gluten and sugar. I know, I said the “S” word! Really give up sugar??? Enter in the fear….. LOL!
But I will make you a deal. I will work on letting go of my fear of schedule changes if you take a moment to consider a change in your diet to progress into a happier healthier you. To blossom into the person you are meant to be.
Take it one step at a time. One change at a time. Let’s let go of fear and see what the flow of life brings us.
