One more month until the end of summer. It's time to start thinking about what I plan to grow in the fall. I stopped to reflect on my summer gardening experience. I didn't grow food with the intentions of becoming healthier. It's deeper than that...
My friend Jemilah has been always known her to be, graceful, humble, beautiful, and especially wise. Her status post made me pause: "this is a great weekend to write a plan for your family( [focusing on] financial spiritual, health, and education)- things will not go back to being the same, be open to doing things differently." I sat down with her to talk in detail about what she meant.
Living a healthy lifestyle should not be hard or confusing. What started as a food frustration has become an awakening. The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan has been there for me in this time of food “awakening”. This book deals with the complexities of the food on our plate.
It can be tempting to become absorbed in the dread of this Pandemic. Rising numbers, long waits for testing, and capacity filled hospitals are enough to overwhelm the most stable minded person. So, what keeps people hopeful? Is that even possible? We should not wait for everything to go back to normal but use the time RIGHT NOW to discover something new to love.
