Total Health Makeover by Marilu Henner--which literally changed my life. It took me from a wanna-be vegetarian to a full fledged, no preservatives ever, healthy eating, vital feeling young woman. It also peeled about 30 lbs off my frame--which was a great thing.
Last weekend, John and I went to see the movie Forks over Knives. I didn't realize how far I'd drifted from that initial ideal to where I am now. Slowly, but surely sugar, dairy, processed foods and far too much coffee have all found their way back into my lifestyle. Leaving me to ask...how did I get here?
I think drift is something we all encounter. Subtle things distract us to remove focus from our initial trajectory. Sometimes this is good--like when we abandon frameworks that are no longer serving us well. But when we drift away from something that we enjoy. Something vital to us. That's a different story.
This concept of drift is connected to relationships, ideals, goals and maybe even the core of who we are. It is probably a good idea to check our compass sometimes. To correct for drift.
