Hello Lovelies! It’s a gorgeous sunny day today and life is good. Acne is not good, but acne is not life. (Note to self, read that last sentence when doubt arises.)
Today I want to talk about a magic pill that will heal you in just 7 days!! You will be acne-free, lose 10 pounds, have boundless energy, make loads of money, get married, have 2.5 kids, a dog, a house – the whole nine yards.
Just kidding. I want to talk about how there is no such thing as a magic pill or a perfect diet and lifestyle that works for everyone.
You are unique. No one else has your body, your mind, and your particular needs. You are an incredibly complex being and every experience you have had up to this very second has shaped you into who you are. When it comes to you, one size does NOT fit all.
So why would you think that what worked for someone else is going to work for you? It’s so easy to fall into the trap that “this NEXT diet or pill is the one that is going to work! If I follow this protocol to a T then I am for sure going to be healed.” Believe me, I’ve fallen into that trap at least a hundred times.
I don’t want you to be hopeless! There is hope! And I don’t want you to become a critical pessimistic person. But, I do want you to be discriminating. What works for someone else may not work for you. If I had never discovered that I had PCOS I would keep on trying these different diets and supplements that, in retrospect, would have never worked. I have no doubt that the people who created these programs were indeed very successful on them. But they are not me.
With that said, I do believe there are incredible health protocols out there that take your unique body into account. They are flexible to your needs and allow you to actually discover what works and what doesn’t without a rigid “my way or the highway” point of view.
When it comes to your health, consider yourself a scientist. I encourage you to experiment. Mix and match to find what works. If you decide to try something new, go full out and be smart about it! If you make 10 changes at once, you’ll never know what made the difference.
Be precise. Be objective. And (this may be the most difficult part) be patient.
You will discover your own “magic pill.”
Today’s affirmation: I am filled with hope.
