Hello, dear readers! How has your week been? Mine has been pleasant, but extremely busy. I intended on writing alot sooner, but the week sort of just flew by after I made my last post. I've been finalizing my Spring schedule, getting my finances in order, and starting the FAFSA process, which is absolutely crucial if I want to go back to school in the Fall. But speaking of my last post, I just have to sincerely thank you all for your support, kind words, and encouragement. You guys have no idea how many times I cried reading your emails and comments. I wanted so badly to comment back, but I didn't know what to say. Seriously. You all literally left me speechless. So much that a simple 'thank you' wouldn't suffice.
All I can say is that you are all such amazingly wonderful people and I'm so appreciative to have you in my life. Your inspiring comments keep me going when I want to give up, they give me hope when I'm close to losing it, and they reassure me when I'm in doubt. I wrote that post because, since I was in the process of cleansing the toxins in my body (I'll come back to that), I thought it was time to cleanse the toxins in my heart and soul as well. In writing that letter to my emotional and physical abusers, I was hoping to free myself from the resentment and animosity I feel towards them. And you know something? It actually helped. Though it'll take me some time to entirely forgive them, it felt good to "directly" address them and tell them how I feel.
So, you guys may or may not be wondering how my Master Cleanse went. I'm quite proud to say that I successfully completed it! I honestly thought I was going to fall off a few times, which was why I didn't want to keep a day to day diary lol, but I never did. I stuck it out and I feel better than ever. My energy level is crazy high, and I feel lighter, healthier, and more alert. I purposely didn't weigh myself before the cleanse because I didn't want it to be about weightloss. But I will say I definitely dropped some pounds and inches, and I can't complain about that. I won't go into the gritty details, but I really suggest that everyone does at least a five day cleanse twice out of the year, because you'd be surprised what accumulates in our bodies after a year of malnutrition and abuse. It's not unsafe likes some people think, but a very beneficial detox and I definitely recommend it. I'm not saying it wasn't difficult because, trust me, it was a mental challenge. But if you have the discipline and motivation, it's definitely worth it.
This will probably be the last entry I make until Sunday, when I move back into my dorm, unless something significant goes down. I can't WAIT to get back to my own computer and privacy. Once I'm back at school, I promise to post more often. It's just been a little tough considering my limited internet access.
Soooo, check out my new tattoo:
Just got it today! I absolutely LOVE it. I made in entry a while back about it's meaning but I'll copy and paste it again:
Pretty awesome, right? It's really crazy how perfect the timing was. I had planned on getting the tattoo during this break but couldn't for lack of funds. And then out of nowhere, this guy contacts my mom the very day my cleanse ended. I knew I couldn't NOT get the Cho-Ku-Rei.
Anyway, I just want to thank you all again for being so supportive. You don't know how much I appreciate each and every single one of you.
Loads of Love,
