The 100 Day Reality Challenge

Hey all,
I have wanted to make a video update but I've had a ROTTEN cold! I am not resisting it, but it sure isn't fun... I am still having Raw smoothies and staying away from junk foods, but soups are definitely on the menu. And a few cookies. I've needed the comfort. I have not had the best 7 days, and I am working on staying positive despite the circumstances. I haven't really known what to say on my blogs, as I've not wanted to come on here and be a Big Bummer. But today I thought I would at least tell you all what is up.

Well, last Friday was the BIG "4-O." and I wanted to THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for all of the wonderful greetings and videos I got to help me celebrate. I feel truly blessed to be part of such an amazing community here. I have to tell you, I may not have gotten through the birthday without you!!!

One big reason is that my Grandmother (the one who has cancer) had a stroke on Friday. Yep, on my birthday. I wasn't quite in the mood to celebrate after that. She is 100% alert, though she is struggling to talk and to eat and has little use of her left side. We spent all of Saturday (Valentine's Day) with her and family. She is doing okay, but not great. We are frustrated and feel helpless. As if the cancer isn't bad enough. She was set to go home from the hospital the day of the stroke, but now may need to go to a nursing home...

I hope you don't think I'm having a pity party, because I'm really not. I have OUTLAWED them from my life. Moments of sheer despair? Oh, I still have those--I'm only human! Sunday I had a baaaaaad day, was very grumpy and weepy. Monday I got myself out and took care of myself! Tuesday I woke up with this cold...

I've been writing, reading, and thinking a lot. I am staying positive, despite everything. I am well. I am connedted to Spirit. I am reading the book "The Live Food Factor" and I am DAMN SURE that I am going to eat as much LIVE food as possible. I want to have HEALTH. I want to be around for many, many decades to come. There is so much I want to accomplish and share with the world.

I haven't got much to give this week, but next week will be back with a a Smile and a bit more to share.

Here is one favorite prayer.
For Today
God Grant Me The Serenity To Accept Those Things I Can Not Change,
Courage To Change Those Things I Can,
And The Wisdom To Know The Difference.

So Sorry about your seemingly crumbling world right now. I am in the midst of a baaaad day right here and now. My daughter (19) is in 6 minutes boarding a tin can plane to fly across the Lake Erie to go play with her friends on an island she has no business being on. It is like 13 degrees outside today. I do not like her friend and right now I do not like her. I love her ,I do not respect her choice on this. I am trying to be present and turn it over but right now, BUT; right now ,to me, it translates as appathy and I am not an appathetic person. So I feel like shit and don't know which way I will Be. Blah blah blah I think though and believe All Is As It Should Be and if I can hold on with acceptance and gratitude for what IS I will survive and maybe even thrive. I do hope with all my heart that your world gets better and quick.oxox Dawn

Happy Belated Birthday :) Thank you for the kind words on my video. I really appreciate it.
Sorry to hear about your Grandmother. She is truely blessed to have such a caring family. I was a cna for a short while and took care of the elderly in their homes. It was a very special time in my life.
You talk about raw foods and your new website. That is great I will have to go see it. You know I found this website through the raw food community. From Lilou. I eat mostly raw also, and drink a green drink everyday. Well thanks for sharing. Shelly

Bless you Clarissa and your Grandmother. I know just how you must be feeling as I went through a similar thing with my dear old Mum prior to Christmas. They thought she had a stroke but luckily after tests was given the all-clear and is now back home after a 7 week stay in hospital. It is such a worry when our relitives grow old and frail with illness. I am sure your grandmother is comforted by knowing she has a loving family around her. I hope your cold is better. love and Hugs. Elle

Sorry to hear about your grandma but it sounds like you are handling things really well. I hope we hear more from you soon. Thinking of you.

Sorry to hear about your Grandma. My heart goes out to you and your family. It's difficult to watch people age. Sometimes all the negativity out there feels like it gangs up on us, but the sunshine willcome out soon. You will be feeling good pretty soon.

Clarissa-have you read the book My Stroke of Insight-watch my video i will put here-it may help you with your granmother. So sorry to hear that. It would not be normal for you to not feel icky after that-it's ok and would be bizarre any other way. Feel those emotions because they are real too and you don't have to dismiss them just because they are not happy.

Glad you have joined the 4-0 Club-i have been a member for 2 years if that makes you feel better!!!!! Love you lots-Megan xxxxxxxx
