I do not feel deprived by watching my intake of sugar. Instead, I feel empowered because I am consciously making the choice. This is vastly different than how I behaved last year. I can now see that the majority of 2014 was spent under a cloud of resentment and sadness.
I made healthier choices and let go of the resentment and sadness which I was carrying for the past few years. I stopped fighting the grief of multiple miscarriages and the deaths of close friends and family members. I embraced my own life path which can best be described as "unique". This simple act opened a huge space in my soul.
The weight started falling off and this opened me up to see that there were other things in my life that needed to be upgraded.As I write this, I am working through a list of dreams which were put on hold back in 2011 and now are being revitalized.
