Learning to Trust

To start, I must admit it has been a difficult two weeks for me.  Both my physical and emotional health have been a battle.  However, I am taking new avenues to try to get back to my healthy self.

With that being said, while talking to a close friend last night about some of my “worries” with starting some new products that I will post more about at a later date.  She said to me, “I think you have learned how to mistrust everything in your environment due to TJ’s allergies.” 

This is soooo true! This past year has opened my eyes to so much knowledge and thus, it has empowered me but also has made me super vulnerable.

One of the topics that is often in my thoughts these days is GMOs.   Check out the following article regarding this…

My friend went on to remind me that I need to learn to trust again which is what I am trying to do with the new products and resources that I have reached out to.   To start, a few nights ago I started to meditate and last night I began using essential oils.

Anxiety is such a tricky battle as it can manifest in so many different ways.  The reality is that we must do whatever it takes to ensure the health of our family.  However, we must also remember that comfort and peace in found in trusting God.  Therefore, we smile on trusting that God is leading our steps…

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You,

Because he trusts in You.”

    I’ve had a bit of the same trouble. The last couple months have been a little better, as I’ve welcomed foods that shouldn’t have any egg in them … but which I’ve eyed warily, thinking, “But I wasn’t there to oversee! How do I really know for sure?!” So far, nothing untoward has happened, so I’ll keep on stepping.

    The Biggest Loser’s yoga/pilates CD was surprisingly anxiety-relieving for me when I found it a couple years ago. I’m not surprised, then, that it had the same effect when I brought it out last week. I’ve got to keep it up, and make time for stretching and breathing exercises. It can feel so hard to make the time, but overall, I feel much, much better (less anxious) when I do. Good luck!

      Thank you so much for sharing this. Yoga is always something that I have wanted to try and still haven’t. I use to take a Pilates class sometimes before my son. However, your comment was another reminder to me that I should try out yoga. It is definitely worth the time even though time is often so limited. I am glad to hear that you have had a good couple of months and I hope that that continues for you. Thank you for your encouragement, suggestion, and sharing your experience. It is much appreciated. =)

      Thank you for sharing that. It is exactly what I need to be doing. Trusting in God even when there are so many worries and fears. Trusting Him. Thank you again for sharing and I wish you the best of luck with everything.

    Time and experience will help the whole family reduce their anxiety regarding this important issue. You have certainly done your due diligence and must slowly integrate a lifestyle that provides a healthy outcome in an unhealthy world. TJ’s immune system will continue to develop and strengthen by implementing the tools available to you. I encourage you to redirect your focus from “fear” to “living.” This certainly doesn’t mean developing a cavalier attitude about a serious condition. It means making life and its wonderful experiences a more central theme while keeping a “radar” out for any unusual reactions or responses. The whole family will likely benefit as a result. Wishing you and your family the best this holiday season.
