Things Have Changed

Well my life is in the Vita Mix these days.  Everything is different from just say, a month ago.

My beloved boyfriend has left me for someone shiny and new.  I was in the middle of a relationship, who knew he was at the end?  I am grief-stricken but getting through.  I have always loved him, and always will, forever.  Love of my life, that one. 

Ah well... so on it goes. 

So needless to say, I'm in the midst of huge changes and sudden crying jags.

But good is emerging, too.  (By the way, I mentioned this 'shit-storm' to a friend, who said, "Remember...shit is fertilizer...")

So the good:  I start a new, full time job on Monday at Organic Lives raw food restaurant.  What could be better?  I went in for a meal and came out with a job.  Right in the midst of all this chaos, I was given this gift.  They said I'd be doing them a favor, too.  Bonus. 

I will get a smoothie for breakfast there, and a raw meal for lunch, which will go a long way to help my food bill, not to mention to entrench me once more into the raw lifestyle and head space. 

I've been eating really well, (raw organic) since this separation (all three weeks of it.)  I'm losing weight which is a nice side-benefit, but I figured it was a smart move to take care of my health during this time of extreme stress.

I'll report back in after I've started work.

My heart goes out to you as your journey follows a different tack. As we remove things from our lives there is more room for the unexpected blessings we never saw coming. May you appreciate every minute for the opportunities they are! Much luck!!!

I was wondering where you had gone. Despite your heartache your writing is still beautiful and you're able to take care of yourself -- so important. I'll have to remember your friend's line about shit being fertilizer.

I wish you the best. Keep on blogging and thank you for sharing.

I am so sorry for the pain you are feeling. Yours was the first blog I found when I started on raw and I drop by every so often to catch up. I find your blog such an inspiration to keep me on raw (or more often, come back to raw). I like to read about your personal life too. You are so multi-talented. I wish you many, many blessings now and in the future.

I'm sorry, dear. : ( I sometimes see life as a marble track...we roll until we hit an obstacle, we roll around the obstacle and continue on until we run into another obstacle, and on and on. The most important thing is to keep rolling! Take good care of yourself
