Have you ever found yourself crying salty tears in a tub of chocolate ice cream?

I recently took my eyes off all things positive; all things true and real; all things healthy, mind, body, and soul. I was focused on all things; not about me. Disillusioned on how this could even happen to me, to those close to me. It is a terrible unfortunate turn of events involving someone close to my heart.
Before long this Natural Health Consultant naturally or unnaturally  ~ for lack of better understanding here ~ found herself staring at the bottom of a chocolate ice cream container, crying, playing and listening to one sad song after another. When that didn’t support my personal pity party I turned to Youtube, called up a Cher Concert. Did you know she is 72 years old? This didn’t help at all. I just started feeling sorry for myself even more but now for different reasons, different scenarios.
OMG Stop I said to myself. After coming to my senses, I purposed in my heart to look at was true and helpful.
This was my wake-up call
Seeing the bottom of that tub of ice cream; I had just violated my body, I allowed my mind to be assaulted by thoughts of worry and fear, and my soul as well as my heart were/is broken… to cap it all off ~  I was letting it happen.
What to do when you are completely undone by troubles no one knows anything about. You wonder, what will everyone think of me, of that person?  When you hurt, link arms with family and friends. Sometimes you just need to weather the storm together—you are not alone.
Remember ~
  1. this is not about you
  2. pray and when you can’t find the words, no worries ~ God will understand your every sigh
  3. keep things that matter in focus
  4. forgive them, forgive you. forgive, forgive, forgive
  5. acknowledge your sadness, your pain, your sorrow
  6. give it to God… let it go and move on
  7. think thoughts of love
  8. love conquers all
  9. send light and love their way
  10. step away from the tub of ice cream 🙂
  11. do not allow guilt to set in
  12. get up dust yourself off and go forward, my friend
  13. get back in the race
  14. continue the good fight
Trust in the One who can do miracles, the One who can change a heart and a life, in a flash. Turning what seems to be an impossible situation into something beautiful in a twinkling of an eye. There is always hope.
My heart is still broken but God…

  1. As a health coach myself I can tell you: it happens. When I have a pity party I like to invite friends, surrounding myself with women who understand and relate makes all the difference. And ice cream is great! I make mine with frozen bananas, raw cacao, stevia and a little nut milk or even grass fed cream. Yum!

    I love your line, “Turning what seems to be an impossible situation into something beautiful in a twinkling of an eye.” It’s important to feel what we feel in the moment we feel it. Thank you for sharing your experience. You are an incredible woman. Remember, life is an amazing adventure.

    My dear Edna, my soul sister friend, your heart has expressed a realness I have wrestled with many times as well however, my self- indulging pity parties have become shorter. Less eating of ice cream.. lol . I not only understand BUT appreciate you sharing. This helps me to remember that I’m not alone and that some ONE just may be needing a for REAL friend as well.
