...And then I remember, it's a cleanse. It's about quieting the mind, healing the body. Why in the world would I want to get frantic???

There is something about this diet for me that allows for a lot more self-love and self-acceptance. It's all good, once I'm there, and I have everything under control. Probably why what was supposed to be a 3 month cleanse turned into almost 2 years of meat-free goodness. Despite my love of cow, of bacon, of In-N-Out burger (I know it's cow, but it's so much more than that too), I learned that I loved myself more, and I felt better when I left those things for sparing treats.

That's what I'm most looking forward to -- not the possibility of weight loss, not the vitality, the energy, but the encompassing sense of wellness it brings.
Have you ever felt this? Ever found that one thing that makes your world snap into focus and just start to work perfectly? What was is?
