Knowing that even when we are hurting beyond the deep,
In the dark you weep,
There will always be spells of rain,
A heart of gold,
A story untold,
The world can be cruel,
You try to keep rule,
Your time here,
Has left you wanting to disappear,
You see love spread it’s magic you see,
Praying one day it will set you free,
Maybe one day you can feel,
A love for yourself so real,
The love you give out as a gift all the time,
The clock continues to chime,
Life moves on,
Time is lost and gone,
People walk in and out,
Many never knowing what your struggles are truly about,
Self-love is a gift we must give ourselves everyday,
So much easier said that done in every way,
Today is an excuse to begin,
A war between self love and hate you want to win,
Let love be,
Love is worth more than a day,
It’s the best medicine the world has at its finger tips some would say.
Remember the battles you have won,
The fight has only just begun,
You hide so much within,
You punish yourself for a sin,
You lose track,
To pick up the slack,
You give love out for free,
People accept and rarely see,
The love you give to them is more than they will have know,
I hope to continue as a person to grow,
I will glue the cracks in my heart,
But it keeps falling apart,
One day soon maybe peace will be my friend,
To you all I will love you until the very end,
Be my valentine and I you can see this year my valentine has to be me.
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
