This week I decided to try and purge the negativity from my body after impulse buying a juice cleanse (it was half off...I couldn't resist). After being explained the intensive process of no eating solid foods for a whole day (which was not so great granted that I love food), drinking one of six juices every two hours, and having lots of water, I was prepared to take on the day. When I woke up, I could tell that I would have a good morning. That is most likely because the juices were a type of memento to me that I would get the chance to flush out all the toxins in my body. I paralleled that idea to getting rid of negativity from my life. Don't get me wrong, it is a nice thought, but it takes more than one day and a few drinks to do that; It is a whole process. Anyway, the morning went smoothly as I did not pay much attention to peoples' complaints. But after I had my third and least favorite juice, everything got mediocre from there and life became the same old same old it had always been. That feeling of having a good day just vanished. Afterwards, I realized I could not hold one item or thing accountable for how I feel. Instead, it needs to be on me.
It needs to be on ourselves to make an effort everyday, even when we do not want to, to make each day a little more extraordinary. That can being in the form of spending some alone time with yourself, having a bubble bath, enjoying nature and going on a walk, or reading a portion of a book. Find one thing in everyday that make you smile. Find your silver lining. That way everyday can be a special one where you do not need to count on anyone or anything to make your day better...like juice.
