Poem- You Are Meant To Be Here.

August 31, 2019

 

 

You are meant to be here.

For now I see, 

The damage within me, 

The dreams I let fade, 

As I sat in the shade, 

Rocking in fear, 

That I have lost all those so dear, 

The pain that never ends, 

To cherish our friends, 

As I write, 

I take back my right, 

To be brave, 

To never cave, 

Despite the tears, 

Over many years, 

I am still alive, 

I fight to continue thrive, 

I must learn to let go, 

Of the hurt I really do know, 

To help heal, 

To know that what is real, 

Is the heart inside, 

That keeps you fighting and taking on the ride, 

The fear that makes me run, 

Should be seen as a challenge and good fun, 

We make mistakes, 

Creating many retakes, 

For what I see, 

I have always been me, 

Through the bad and the good, 

I always act as I think I should, 

Towards the pain that I face, 

I must handle myself with grace, 

This is me you see, 

The perfectly imperfect person I have fought to be, 

Please follow me, 

On a journey to feeling confident with me, 

There is a long way to go, 

I walk with you  - I'll have you know, 

To pick you up when you are down, 

Tonight our souls take on the town, 

Whilst we sleep and rest, 

So we have the energy to give our lives our best, 

Hey little fighter I want you to hear, 

You have a purpose to stay here.

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.
