Poetry -24

January 9, 2019

 

This time last year, 

I wanted nothing more than to simply disappear

The failure I had become was a constant fear, 

I didn’t know what lay here, 

As time went on,

I didn’t want time to be gone,

I had to start living for me,

The person I wanted to be,

I had to shake off the person I thought I would have become,

Embracing the new path with a welcome,

I learnt the art of gratitude,

That really is the attitude

Life is what we make of it, 

It never goes to plan - one bit, 

I began to gain knowledge and learn,

The fire inside me still did burn,

No illness could ever take that away, 

With life I decided to play,

To face fears,

I still shed many tears,

I realised that it is all part of the story by which we live,

It was important to forgive,

Espeically yourself. 

To be more at peace with myself, 

We have to chase dreams, 

No matter how crazy it all seems,

They keep us real, 

They heal, 

It was important to really be inspiring and not just say it,

On our backsides we can’t just sit,

We control our destiny’s and the story’s that are left to be told, 

We want them to be a bestseller as it’s sold, 

Tomorrow marks the end of the beginning you see,

The year I thought I had lost it all but I had really found me, 

To adding sparkle where I go, 

I just want you to know,

It’s a journey with no road signs in sight,

We give our best fight,

We only get one shot at this game,

So don’t go insane,

Despite your health we can be on top form for it all, 

Nobody has a crystal ball, 

So we have to live for now and make our mark, 

Looking back I hope I have started to make my mark,

Even when it is so dark I’ve learnt to see the light,

Always continuing to fight,

24 you have taught me so much about me,

I hope you are proud of the person you have shaped me to be, 

Finally thank you,

I have loved you!

COOKING TIPS

#1
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.
 
#2
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.
 
#3
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.
 
#4
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.
 
#5
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.
