Dear Older Me,

When you read this I want you to remember how empowered you felt after you finished the Clean Slate Cleanse. Before this 21 day challenge you were always the BEST at talking yourself OUT of whatever you had started. You really believed that you didn’t have self control – but now you know that you do…and a lot of it.

Remember the two long and brutal days that you were detoxing from #allthethings. I don’t want you to go to shame, because, shame is lame, but I want you to reflect on how you chose to use food, and sugar, and especially wine to numb out or even reward yourself. Instead I want you to remember that food is created keep your beautifully and wonderfully made body functioning optimally. It is not a bad thing to celebrate with food, but be intentional when you do.

You have so many wonderful tools to help you when stress comes knocking at your door. You no longer have to stuff (emotions or food). You can use your mindful eating exercise to really check in to what your body is actually needing. Maybe its water, maybe its rest, maybe it is food – and then when you eat you can chew and appreciate and check in to whether you have had enough – enough to continue thriving.

I know you were not prepared for alcohol to have such a hold on you – but I am proud of how you reached out and you reached within. You wanted to go to shame – because that is a well worn path to some broken places within – but you are strong at the broken places and you have strong and beautiful truth speakers in your life who helped you when you needed it. You didn’t stay in shame long. Good girl.

You already knew that we are better together. You value community immensely. I am so glad that you got to experience it in a new way. Many truths were confirmed: Reaching out and being seen works much better than hiding in isolation. You are not alone. Gratitude goes a long way. Social media can be used for so much good. The power of community is limitless.

Remember how good you feel right now. Look at how beautifully your body is working. You lost some weight and your skin cleared up and your digestive system is FINALLY working – but the real prize is at a soul level. You are filled with hope and truth and the evidence of a promise kept. You have a greater appreciation for what it means to be made in the image of God – you understand beautifully and wonderfully made in a whole new way. Eating God-created food can be an awesome way to worship.

Keep up the great work Rosy – you are so loved. I am proud of you. You are going to love this new way of living and eating.

Love, Wholehearted Rosy
