Feel Good Project day 82
Tonight I was jokingly called a ‘show off’ by the cute elderly couple in front of me in line at the grocery store.
What they were referring to were my organic items (2 cucumbers, 2 zucchini and a green apple), as they compared them to their two bags of goldfish crackers and a tin box of altoid mints.
These people were so darn cute, and they joked about the healthy choices I was making compared to their items-which they swore were for their grandchildren at home who they said LOVE those crackers.
I found myself slightly embarrassed as the people in back of me were peering over to see what I was buying, as the conversation made me sound like some sort of freak of nature.
Took me back to the days of junior high when you are not quite comfortable in your skin yet, and I found myself making a mild excuse as to why I buy these items and that I ‘try my best’ but believe me I think goldfish crackers taste darn amazing.
I walked away asking myself why I had to make them feel better about their choices, as they clearly already knew they were not making the best, otherwise they wouldn’t have even brought it up. I guess it was just another way to make themselves feel a bit better about their decision, so a joke lightened the mood.
What was strange to me was feeling like I needed to have an excuse to make them feel better!
I have changed so much these past five years in particular, that it’s surprising to me to revert to ways I was more so in the past. I always want everyone to feel loved, accepted and worthy, which is NOT a bad thing in and of itself.
My food and lifestyle choices are nothing to make myself feel bad about, leaving me feeling like I have to make everyone around me okay with my decisions as well.
The fact is, all of us are going to go through many phases in life, both physically and emotionally. I want to be aware of never becoming prideful in the phase I happen to find myself in.
Never say never.
I like to think that knowing what I know now, I would not down a whole bag of goldfish crackers like I once did, but I cannot say with 100% certainty this would never happen because I have no idea what the future looks like.
I hope and pray my future decisions don’t involve gluten, processed foods or GMO’s, but I all I have is now, and right now I am making the decision to eat as clean as I can and plan on doing so for the years to come.
It is rather sad though when I looked at all of the people’s shopping cart items tonight while they checked out-I just wanted SO much more for them. I want to yell from the rooftops about how STRONGLY food affects us. Then I remembered that I too, had my own journey that has led me to this point and I am all the better for it.
FEELING very very thankful for Extreme Health Radio though and that I DO have a voice in hopefully introducing new ideas about health and wellness to a large amount of people worldwide. This is why we do what we do over here-we hope to encourage people to choose bigger and better things for themselves!!!
Although the ‘show off’ comment was made in jest, I still felt a bit like a prude when it was said. I realized I didn’t want to be seen as a show off, but rather be used to show the truth about what real food looks like, by living by example. People DO pay attention, that’s for certain.[spp-tweet “We are speaking all the time, even when no words are used.”]
FEEL GOOD MOMENT OF THE DAY: Receiving a gift in the mailbox today from a dear client of mine. Upon retiring, she gifted me with a beautiful gold Mexican silver necklace of an angel from when she went to New Mexico awhile back. It is heavy and beautiful. The note that came with it was thanking me for being an ‘angel’ in her and her daughter’s life all these years of doing their hair.
