I receive a daily email from a wonderful gal named Jinjee (isn't that just the cutest name evah?)
Her husband and her are living and raising their family on a 100% raw food diet.
These folks are amazing.
He is amazing.
He's somewhere in his sixties and looks not a day over 30
You really have to see this, if you haven't meet them already.
My email today was about her own discoveries with self discipline.
It really was a bonsai moment for me too because I have been growing and accepting the reality that self discipline is going to be my "make me or break me" point in all avenues of my life .
I read it and had a loud BONSAI!! inside!
YES! YES! YES!
I want to be there too!
Not just with my food, but to have that satisfaction in every area of my life.
I'm ready to jump in!!
I have been wondering why we are all so addicted to different foods, even when we get as far as becoming raw vegans; we are addicted to raw cacao, addicted to overeating, addicted to msg. In the store, I was tempted to eat raw cacao, but I didn't. On the way home I felt a bit strange, not having an addiction to satisfy. It felt kind of empty. I am addicted to addictions. What could I replace that feeling with? And then later I felt it - a sense of satisfaction that I had been able to use self-discipline. And then I realized the answer to my question - that discipline is the new satisfaction, replacing the satisfaction of our addictions! Not only is discipline the cure for addiction, it is also the replacement. Not only is it the harsh reality, it is also the soul satisfaction.
