Struggle vs. Challenge

August 2, 2008 at 4:17 am 5 comments

I really liked this article on struggle vs. challenge by Dhrumil…lots of great stuff to think about.

Here is one paragraph in particular that really resonated with me::

“Yeah.” Nature continued, “And there have been times that I’ve wanted steamed vegetables since I’ve been raw and I have no problem having them. It’s not that I crave them, I just enjoy them. It may be once a week, but even if I wanted them more often I would have no problem with that either. And if I wanted anything else that’d be fine too.”

“You don’t feel bad that you’re not eating 100% raw?”, I asked.

“But that’s never been the goal for me. The goal is to have a beautiful relationship with food and feel joy. And I feel because I do, that’s why I been able to come this far without a struggle. I’m healthy and happy. Food isn’t my focus, it’s my nourishment.”

    Love the goal of the relationship with food instead of a percentage!!! It would suck to be 100% raw and hating every minute of it. Good post for this first day of RawFu!!

    Yes-1/2 banana, 1 orange, and lots of baby spinach are my favorite green smoothie ingredients!

    thats awesome thanks for sharing! that is why I hate labels! we fight so hard to not conform but in reality we are conforming by following a different path, and calling it nonconformity when in fact we are JUST like everyone else aorund us…does this make sense?

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
