Relax my internet loves: this is not where I tell you that we’re only drinking juice (although I am a fan of the green juice and have been trying to include a few more in my routine). But they seem to be everywhere, and in all forms, right? It’s the season of cleanses, closet-cleaning, clutter- fixers, new diets, and in general detoxing. And I’m not mad at it- of course to your own level and need, I like the ideas of stripping things down and only adding back to your life the things that you truly want and need. Again, I’m not just talking about juice.
I am drinking more juice- I try to eat moderately and clean throughout the year but after the holidays, it’s nice to reset my diet. I’m cleaning out my closets- eliminating things that I don’t love or wear, making space for things I will. But more than that, I’m trying to sit still some- to look at my life, stripped down and making sure that the things I add into it are only the things that I love or need. You can call it mindful or focused, use the word detox, but I’m making a conscious effort to take this time of “stripping down” and making sure that the building back up results in a life I’m in love with.
No form of detox is easy- there are scary questions like: what do I want my life to look like? Where do I want to be? What do I need to do to get there? The answers aren’t always easy- but they aren’t always awful. Like that green juice, I’m taking this time to enjoy doing things that are good for me.
I’d love to know: are you detoxing (in any form)? What are you letting go of?
Wishing us all a week of easy letting go and amazing shoes!! XO RA
