A Great Life Lesson
by Josh Mitchell, Grandville Michigan ©2007
During the waning years of the depression in a small Idaho community, I used to stop by Mr. Millerís roadside stand for farm fresh produce as the season made it available. Food and money were still extremely scarce and bartering was used extensively.
One day Mr. Miller was bagging some early potatoes for me. I noticed a small boy, delicate of bone and feature, ragged but clean, hungrily appraising a basket of freshly picked green peas.
I paid for my p ... read more
Day 8 and I feel g-g-grreat! 14 y
La la land
Woo hoo!! Iím almost there!! I feel so much better than I did last night. I actually had a surge of energy last night around 9. I woke up this morning and felt even better. I know this sounds weird, but I like it when I feel like crap, it lets me know something is happening.
Itís the final countdown (I thik I hear Europe playing) and Iím so excited!!!! I know some people feel sad about it ending but donít. Iím stoked!!! I canít wait for some beautiful, delicious orange juice. OOHHH. O.J.
Alright, enough of that, or I wonít make it.
I went to the store today and picke ... read more
Day 7 14 y
Here we go again.
I have been sooo tired today. I pretty muched cat napped all day, even after sleeping in. I really had a full agenda too, but I decided to listen to my body and just chill.
Iím still nursing my b/f back to health, which has been a blessing. I know that sounds terrible, but itís the truth. Ususally around this time we go into relaxation mode. Which consists of cocktails and smoke. With him sick, heís not doing any of it, so less temptation around. YAY.
All in all, today was boring. I feel tired, cranky, slightly ill and un-motivated. I guess thatís to be expected o ... read more
Meditation 14 y
Meditation can be used for a variety of things. It is beneficial for your health, both mentally and physically, to clear the mind at least three times a day. Sit for a minute or two and totally empty your mind. Let all of the dayís stress, worries, and thoughts flow out. Once the mind is clear, fill it now with positive thoughts. If you do this three times a day, your life and your health will greatly improve. Nothing comes overnight, however. One must always keep in mind that nothing is Ēinstant,Ē and that the benefits attained from doing anything good are not immediately apparent.

Day 6 14 y
Better be careful what I wish ......
Today, I am still nursing my b/f back to health. I went to the store and got all kinds of fruit to juice and cut up fresh for him. It was hard when I was making him a huge fruit bowl not to pick up the fruit and eat it. MMMMMM.
Also, I have been debating on how long to do this cleanse. I kept going back and forth from 10 to 15 days. Today, I decided. My b/fís family will be coming into town from NY on the 16th and I donít want to be on a cleanse while the are here. Also, My b/fís grandfather will be here on the 16th for one day only. Itís my first time meeting him and I am goin ... read more
Motivation 14 y
Some thoughts that keeps me inspired.
If you can keep your head when all about you
are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
but make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
or being lied about, donít deal in lies,
or being hated, donít give way to hating,
and yet donít look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream-and not make dreams your master,
if you can think-and not make thoughts your aim;
if you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
and treat those two impostors just the same;
if you can bear to hear the truth youíve s ... read more
Thinking ahead.... 14 y
I finished my walk and never got to my yoga. Instead, I find myself thinking ahead....
My b/f is sick today so I am nursing him back to health. I made him my special chicken and rice soup. He re-named it Ēget naked soupĒ. He says it is so spicy that it makes you take all your clothes off. I must admit, depending on the weather, it does. I have several varieties I like to make. I have the one I made today, spanish chicken soup, or this other asian one. Both are great for colds and both can be made VERY SPICY or mildly hot.
Anyway, making the soup got me thinking of what I was going to m ... read more
Day 5 on Cinco De'Mayo
Am I out of my mind?
I had no idea that my fast was going to run through Cinco Deí Mayo!! What was I thinking??
I love Mexican everything. Enchiladas, margaritas, tacos, margaritas, Corona, strawberry margaritas, guacomole, watermelon margaritas. Damn. Here I am saying ĒI love being preparedĒ. Uh huh. I wasnít really, now was I? What a chump.
Just kidding. I really do love Cinco De Mayo though.
I used the last of my lemons this morning and I only have a smidge of maple syrup left. I debated on going to the store or not. I was going to wait and just go in the morning but I wasnít sure what tim ... read more
What the @#$% ? 14 y
This is so scary.
I was surfin the web and I stumbled across this website.
Has any one else heard of this? I am so furious right now. What is this, Russia? Shouldnít we all have the right to choose who, where and how we get our treament?
Like I JUST SAID in my last post, the doctors were making me sicker and sicker and sicker. Robbing me blind all the while. Iím disgusted. I have to do more research on this. If anyone reads this and knows anything, please advise. We CANíT LET THIS HAPPEN. read more
What a wonderful feeling!!! 14 y
Day 4 brought an un expected joy.
My girlfriend says we are on a divine path and that everything has already been planned out for us. She also says that if you want something just think about it and it will happen. My gilfirend says a lot of things.....
Today was a weird day for me. I donít speak to my parents. I havent spoken to my parents since a little before my first fast 6 months ago. Well that said, my parents introduced me to a holistic woman a couple of years ago. She helped me battle a problem that I had been having for years. I constantly had urinary tract infections and yeast infections. When I say con ... read more
Day 3 14 y
My bootie makes loud doodie.
Early this morning my worst fear happened. It was around 3 a.m. and I woke up with the urge to go. Yippee. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to have explosive b/mís with the whole house so quiet you could hear a pin drop. I had to go so bad I didnít have time to turn on the shower or anything. So... I woke my boyfriend up. He was laughing hysterically, and with no shortage of funny remarks. That only made it worse because I was laughing and making my stomach clench even more. Jeez. Why donít I hear of other people going through this? Is my house the only house so immature? Probably so.

My "black heart"
My "black heart"
My "black heart" 14 y
Can I cleanse it?
When I was 13 I was dating this boy whose Mom was a psychic. She told me that she could see that I had a Ēblack heart with good intentionsĒ. Iím not sure what that means to this day, but I still think about it from time to time. I want to be a good person but I have so much anger. Iíll ge mad at something and Iíll say to myself Ēlet it go, just let it goĒ or Iíll even try to meditate or pray. Nothing seems to work for me. Iím hostile and I hate it about me. If you knew me, youíd think I was Ēthe sweetest girlĒ but if you REALLY knew me, I donít know what youíd think.
I am reall ... read more
Taking Time for Myself 14 y
Do I need It!
Iíve noticed that when I am fasting I take better care of myself. I mean to say, I take more time for myself. Why is that? Itís not as if I have more time, I just take it. Why canít I do that in my everyday life. Itís like me not eating, drinking, or smoking gives me the right to take the time for myself I need. Weird. I guess thatís why I called this a vacation, because I actually give myself little get-a-ways to do the things that make me happy (i.e body brushing, masks, oil pulling). Itís nice and Iíll have to try to do better in my everyday life. Like maybe when I go to the fridge out ... read more
Day 1 14 y
I love being prepared
Today, Iím happy to say, was a great day. My preperations started yesterday, I had a salad last night for dinner. And before I went to bed I was very careful when I made my laxative tea. Sometimes I forget and let it steep too long which sucks because I think it causes cramping. More than anything though, I knew what to expect, so it was much easier this time. The last time I was woken up at 4 a.m. to terrible stomach cramps and the quick realization that I HAD TO GO!! It scared me really. I sprinted to the spare bathroom because I didnít want to wake my boyfriend up. My goodness am I gla ... read more
Well today is the day!! 14 y
Have a Great Day!!
This is my second time doing the Master Cleanse and Iím really excited. Iíve decided that this time, Iím going to try and make it not just about cleansing my body, but also trying to cleanse some of the anger and hostility Iíve been feeling lately. I really enjoy life and all that it has to offer. I guess thats why I started fasting to begin with...I want to be here for a very long time. Happy and healthy. As of late though, I donít feel as though I am either. I am un-happy and therefore doing un-healthy things.
SOOO, today is the day for me to start my personal journey. My vacation from ... read more
