It's a Funeral and a Party!

Yes. I will be having a funeral on April 30th.

This is no ordinary funeral, because I am, in fact, alive and kicking. But, for the month of May, I will be laying to rest my unhealthy eating habits.
 
This was inspired by Dr. Kelly Brogan and her book,  A Mind of Your Own.

Dr. Brogan started her focus on the impact of food on your health and well being after being diagnosed with postpartum thyroiditis, or Hashimoto’s disease.  After making significant changes to her diet she was able to dramatically improve both her physical and mental health.  

I saw her on an interview with Marie Forleo and she said something that really got me thinking.
 
In all the months of your life, can you take just one and try a clean eating plan?
 

THE GAUNTLET HAS BEEN THROWN DOWN


Truth be told, I have been thinking about cleaning up my diet for some time. I have made a lot of wonderful, healthy changes in my life, yet I still have some areas that I believe keep me from fully living my Soul's Mission.

I am tired of knowing I could be stronger, more energetic and healthier but choose not to make the needed changes.

A funeral seems like the right thing to do.

Will you join me?


On Sunday, April 30th at 6:00 pm, you can join me LIVE on Facebook and I will be burying sugar, coffee, bread and dairy. (Be sure and like my page so you don't miss out.)
 
I invite you to join me and have your own funeral.
 
Cigarettes perhaps.
 
Saying goodbye to complaining, worrying, self-doubt or fear.
 
Maybe burning that credit card is in order.
 
Perhaps, letting go of those old files that have been cluttering up your basement.

Pick something you are ready to be done with and have a funeral for it.
                 
Won’t it be great to have one month out of all the months of your life where you did something you know you have been wanting to do but have been putting off?
 
It is like New Year’s Resolutions and Lent rolled into one BIG FUNERAL PARTY every day in the month of May.

Let's put the FUN in funeral and make a party of it!  Here is the video of my funeral: 

 
MAY we become people who bury bad habits and choose healthier ones…at least for the month of May.
 
If you want to further support on putting down behaviors and thoughts that no longer nourish you and are ready to begin living your Soul’s Mission sign up for the next session of The Now Life starting on May 24, 2017.
