Changes

Slowly, my mind, body, and spirit have started to heal.  I find myself different once again. I try to pinpoint the change, but I cannot.  It wasn’t any one thing. I only know that I have let go of something very heavy. Something that I could no longer carry.  Maybe it was all the rules, the requirements I had for myself, maybe it was my expectations.

Our Food Matters

Want to help someone with illness and especially cancer?  Ask yourself why won’t I change? Why don’t I want to believe?  If there is even a chance that this information is true don’t I owe it to them and myself to find out?  Maybe you lost someone to cancer in the past and if this is true than maybe it could have been avoided.

My life ended up on the line. I don’t want yours to. … More Our Food Matters
