Why so much talk of change? What else is a fast supposed to be about?
I do write a lot about change. I’ve always been very positive and I do chase after change. I spent a lot of years waiting for something to be different in my life when I was younger. That was a different time. I wasn’t on my own, and I wasn’t independent yet to make my own decisions. But as life becomes such where I can stand on my own two feet and I have a job to support myself, I really have no excuse but to live positively. Maybe things weren’t as I wished growing up, but I’d only have myself to blame if things didn’t change to as I see fit.
That’s why this fast is so necessary for me. I was facing a problem again. I don’t want everything I’ve worked so hard for to disappear. If we mess up, things can slip away very quickly. Think of it as a drug addict or alcoholic. If they’ve been sober, that next drink could mean ruins. It only takes one. That’s why recovery is so important. That’s why we need to stay a step ahead of ruin. I don’t want to be dragged back into my eating disorder. That’s what started to happen. Sadly enough, I was back on that road. Luckily not long. It’s a sick life to lead. It’s controlling and becomes more important than anything in life. It completely takes over everything we do.
Fasting will mean something different for each of us. What’s your medicine? What are you looking to heal? It’s usually about something very important. Fasting has a significant meaning. Don’t take it lightly. Use it as the wonderful tool it is. That’s why I suggest reading books on it. See why others are doing it. What’s their experience? How difficult was it for them? What can you learn through their stories? Then if you do it, you should pass along your story too. Your words can mentor someone. They can offer encouragement. For whoever needs to fast for their own reasons, they can hold onto your story each step of the way. That’s why I mention so much of change. It’s one of the great life processes.
