I am on day 7 of the Medical Medium’s 3.6.9 day cleanse for yet another time around the cleanse and my son asked me this morning why? “Why mom are you doing it again when you just finished it before the holidays?” I had to stop and think for a second before I answered him. There are so many reasons why. Better sleep. Improved energy. Less brain fog. Less anxiety. So. Many. Reasons. But ultimately my “why” is my children. I want them to have a mom that can play with them without feeling like she needs to go lay down on the couch after 20 minutes. I want to be able to take them skiing, hiking, sledding, swimming. And not dread it but truly enjoy it with them because I feel good. And I want to show them that chronic illness doesn’t have to be life limiting. That you can overcome it with persistence, the right diet, supporting tools, and the right mindset. When I finally looked up at him I just smiled and said “so I can be the best mom I can be.” He just smiled and went about his day.
Having a really strong “why” is so important in whatever you choose to do. It provides you with the backbone you’ll need when you begin to waiver, which we always do, when it’s something that pushes us out of our comfort zone. It’s also the first thing I ask my clients now when we begin working together.
What’s your WHY?
