I've been enjoying the time inside as winter comes into full swing. I have been asked if the winter makes it too difficult to be 100% raw. Things are made difficult by our outlooks. Haven't you ever had a terrible day? A few days later you can be in the best mood ever and those exact same things could happen to you and it wouldn't be a terrible day then. It's all about perspective. I believe that if we ARM ourselves with positive conditioning I can honestly say that I am NOT at all cravings/thinking about/wishing about super hot or cooked foods. I am enjoying all my new dishes and I've been experimenting a ton in the kitchen.
I have been going out to the library as often as possible....just plugging away at the thesis......arduous, yet rewarding. I am feeling blissful inside....accepting things and walking into change with wide open eyes.

Oh the Christmas spirit. One of peace...patience...joy and love. I am so happy that my daughter is "engaged" this year. So into things. I am not doing the Christmas list and OUR Santa doesn't check to see if you've been naughty or nice. He asks if you've been kind and giving. Even then, the judgment doesn't come in terms of the amount of presents that you receive. I will NOT be passing those traditions down. I am starting my own.
