A box is a funny thing. A cardboard object made of sides with a top and a bottom. Cats love them. I’ve never known a cat that wouldn’t jump into an opened box - full or empty its fair game.
I think it’s fair to say that a box can hold just about anything - clothes, dishes, books, anything perhaps, except liquid. I hope you’ve never made the mistake of haphazardly putting a container of liquid dish soap in a box on moving day only to have it tip over. Even the liquid detergent from Vitacost has the bottle lids taped shut and the bottle itself wrapped in a sealed plastic bag. They know what liquid can do to a cardboard box.
And as I think of liquid in a cardboard box leaking all over the place, it reminds me of our thoughts and the phrase “thinking outside the box.”
I love food and as much as I try to eat healthy, I do miss the mark sometimes. I mean, ice cream is a gift from the gods is it not? 😊
In my quest to eat healthy foods, I've found there's one thing that really gets me a bit riled up and that is how much stuff that’s sold to us as food really isn’t food at all.
We eat to nourish our bodies so they can have the energy they need to function – for cellular growth and repair and all the bazillion things a body does.
Your body can’t get that energy on its own, you’re the one who needs to supply it.
Not all foods are equal though and looking at a nutrient label may not give you all the information you need.
Here's an affirmation you can say out loud in front of a mirror as you gaze into your eyes or quietly in the car when you're driving to the grocery store. The important thing is to say it like you mean it.
You ARE strong, you ARE powerful, and you ARE beautiful beyond measure.
Sometimes as I say this affirmation, I visualize myself like Wonder Woman in her power stance, minus the bikini shorts and halter top shield. I'm more of a jeans gal But the tiara is kind of cool.
As you say this affirmation and feel into it, you're affecting the community of women.
We're all in this together and as one of us rises, we all rise.
