Making Room For Time
I also feel like I have more time to think, do and just be. It is a very peaceful feeling. The one regret our son has is that I got rid of the bread maker. He knows that means no more homemade pizza crust. We don’t really eat pizza anymore and the bread maker was taking up a lot of space. Our son realizes that the grain stage is over. We now eat more meat, fat, and even more vegetables than before. In some ways, I think he actually prefers it. Though at Grandma’s house, it is always pizza and macaroni and cheese. So he still gets to have his favorite “junk carbs” sometimes.
It is nice to sit and have a cup of coffee by myself. It had been crazy during the holidays. We also had a lot of dance functions to go to on top of the already busy season. We are still trying to figure out what things clutter our time, money, and space that we could part with. There are some decisions that are harder than others.
Our son is beginning to understand the importance of donating and letting go of things that are not that important. Giving up grains was the beginning of my journey by letting my body dictate what I should eat and not the world. Though my husband is upset that we have less choices if we wanted to eat out at a restaurant. I don’t mind as much because we weren’t eating out very often anyway. I also prefer to eat at home because I know exactly what I am eating. I just wish I knew what I was doing.
