The truth is this article initially aimed for a body detox, until I realized, for the body to get a real detox, the mind needed to get it first. 2017 was such an amazing year because I invested many months detoxing my soul.
The steps are simple, and if followed constantly, you will benefit from a life filled with peace, nights with better sleep and happier days. The final result will have a positive impact in your body, you will then be ready to target a physical detox.
Step 1. Make peace and love to your past. Don’t allow your past to interfere with your present and future. Start closing circles, accepting that your decisions in the past were not good or bad, they were just the best decisions you could have taken back then.
Step 2. Other people opinions are none of your business. They can say or think whatever they want, they are entitled to it. You are not defined by what others think of you. They are not walking on your shoes nor paying your bills.
Step 3. Stop comparing yourself. Yes, do so right now!, stop that thing of making comparisons of your life with the life of others, or yourself with other people. You and your life are unique, comparisons will take away the joy of your uniqueness.
Step 4. It’s okay not to know. You don’t need to have all the answers or understand everything that’s going on. It’s okay to be clueless, it’s perfectly fine not to understand why that someone ended the relationship, just accept it. Don’t over analyze things, just be fine with not knowing.
Step 5. Time is your new best friend. You see, time heals almost everything. If you are in the middle of a storm, give it time. This, I think, has been my biggest learning in life. Time is your friend, the best one.
Step 6. Take responsibility. You are the only one responsible of your life. Not your parents, or significant other. Only you can solve your problems and, most important, only you are responsible for your own happiness.
Step 7. Use the best curve of your body. Smile baby!, as bad as it looks, believe me when I say, someone, somewhere is having it worst. Smile, every time you can, for little things and big things. Make sure you always have a big smile on your face.
Step 8. Be grateful. You may not be in the place you want to, but you have the courage, the strength and the power to start walking in that direction. Be always grateful for your journey. I truly believe that if you are always thankful, life will start giving you things to be thankful for.
At the end we are souls with a body, not all the way around!. Author unknown
