Day 15 - I Believe

You may be finding yourself feeling a little bored, a little antsy, and a lot ready to be done with this experiment. That’s not uncommon – the initial discovery phase has waned, you’ve made it through two full weeks and now your freedom is just seven seemingly endless days away. But remember that it takes 21 days to learn new habits so there’s a reason we’re still at it.

Why not make this last week something special? Try some new recipes, give yourself a reward, make a plan for what you’ll do after the cleanse is over. And know that this is temporary – if the cleanse feels a bit like a prison right now, know that you’re going to be paroled very soon. Hang in there – you’ve come so far!

I found a greeting card one day when I was slightly down in the dumps. Now it's on my desk. I just read it this morning and thought about how it applies to all of us. We're two-thirds of the way done with the cleanse, and that's a fantastic accomplishment! Here’s the card…

I believe in mind over matter.

I believe in the human spirit to prevail.

I believe in miracles and blessings, both great and small.

I believe in possibilities.

I believe that hurdles in life are meant to be jumped over, not as something to stop us.

I believe in you.

Be proud of what you have accomplished and have a wonderful Day 15!
