I decided to start the New Year out with a cleanse in both the figurative and literal sense.

I started the Advocare 10 Day Cleanse on the 1st. I am not sure why they call it a cleanse. It really isn't. Basically it is some fiber drinks and probiotics to help get "things" on track (regular)

The required "diet" is really nothing more than a whole foods eating plan consisting of whole grains, lean protein, veggies, fruit and healthy fats. It is pretty much how I eat anyway or rather how I ate before the holidays came with their candies and cookies and other assorted junkie deliciousness.

So now that the physical part of me is on the right track, I decided to cleanse the mental part too.

I was spending too much time on people who didn't deserve it. Those people are gone from my life and won't be reappearing any time soon. Instead, I am focusing on people who show me the same love and respect that I show them. I am focusing on my family and those friends that have stuck by me through all of the B.S without judgement or expectations of something in return.

I have also decided as part of this cleanse to stop being so hard on myself. Instead of focusing on my failures or shortcomings, focusing on my accomplishments. This is working out so far, but is going to take some time. This isn't something that comes in a box and will be fixed in 10 days, but I am doing better. It helps that I have a lot of great people (see above paragraph) that are awesome and help me along with this one.

I hope all reading this had a wonderful New Year!

    Awesome cleaning house figuratively and physically, I'm working on that currently because negative people can surely be a drain. Keep up the good work.

    Wow I love your mental rearrangement! I have done that in the past, but not so much recently. Maybe I should think about mental and relational space too. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I totally understand the mental cleanse as well as the physical one. Toxic people can bring you down so quickly if you let them, and they never understand boundaries. I have had to cut out a lot of people in my life, and while it was difficult to do, I have no regrets :)
