Yesterday I just once again realised that I prefer my own journey in my own shoes and even my own big stick that I use to beat myself up with.
I popped into a friend’s business for a quick chat and I only left 4 hours later but people I was almost in tears when I walked out of her office. She is only 47 but she is so so so sick. She has always been big but now – her weight is out of control and all doctors say to her is that she should go for a gastric bypass operation and all her problems will go away. How can doctors be so insensitive – there is obviously so much more wrong with her than being over weight. She has so many problems – I so wish I could help her to get better. She is basically bent double from osteoporosis and she walk with a walking stick.
So yes today all my complaints and worries look so small in comparison to hers.
And now for the rest of my rambles.
I spoke to another mutual friend about how sick above mentioned friend is and she said that all we can do is pray for her. OK yes I agree but I just feel that to sit back and say let’s pray is not right. Surely there should be some action as well, research, alternative healing, support groups etc etc. Am I wrong – I feel so frustrated when people just say – all we can do is pray…. Maybe my type A, OCD, personality can’t just let go and let be….
Have you ever tried http://www.faithfultonature.co.za? When we started on the LCHF journey lots of the products were not available in stores and I ordered a lot of the flours and oils from them. They are prompt in delivering and there is always a little sample of something in the package. Such amazing service.
Now I’m a Clarins girl – I don’t use make-up but I feel quite strongly about a proper cleanse, tone, moisturise regime for my skin. My Clarins was getting quite low and on the exact day where I was bemoaning the fact that I have to go and buy everything I got an email from faithful to nature about a special they are running on the Esse skincare range. It is organic and green and not tested on animals and local etc etc etc. So I ordered the whole shabang for the same price as just a Clarins moisturiser. And all I can say is that I’m pleasantly surprised. My skin feel so much softer and people actually comment on my the difference in my skin’s appearance. So I’m a convert.
I hate completing forms – and today I’m sitting with 5 forms from Statistics South Africa that has to be completed – I’m not even half way with the first one. Can somebody do it for me? Pretty please?
So sad – a little boy in Zoe’s school was killed in a car crash yesterday – his stepmom was also killed and the 3 other siblings are all in a critical condition. A few seconds and so many lives changed for every.
Let’s try to finish on a more positive note. I’m taking Zoe to the chocolate and coffee show on Friday – well I suppose a better way to say it is that I’m dragging Zoe there because I really want to go.
Have a good day!
