Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.
(Swedish proverb)
Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
(Sicilian proverb)
Your friend is that man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
(Elbert Hubbard)
You can always tell a real friend; when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
(Laurence J. Peter)
Friends are family you choose for yourself.

If you have been a raw foodist for a while, chances are that you will have to face some old addictions and deal with the issue of emotional eating. This is something I am going through right now. Suddenly, issues with salt have surfaced and I have realized that this is one issue that I have not resolved yet. I've heard from fellow raw foodists
how salt induces cooked food cravings, and how good they felt after getting rid of salt in their diet. I have not taken a step yet to make permanent changes in this direction yet. However, I am acutely aware of the issue, and I know I've got to do something to break the cycle. On top of that, I have not been in my best mood recently, to which a number of things contributed, partly too much work and not enough rest. I have succumbed to emotional eating, and on occasions, my healthy eating patterns flew out of the window. I am feeling rather miserable today. My other, determined (as always) part, drives me in a positive direction. I look forward to moving to the new home. I use this opportunity to rearrange things. For example, TV is planned not to be a part of the loungeroom anymore (use only for making home-movies is anticipated) . Cooked-food gadgets and other never-used items which clatter the space, will find their place in a shed, before being disposed off completely, I guess. Cleaning things inside out. I suppose this relates to my self as well.

"After every night, a day comes.
After every storm, a silence.
Suddenly, birds wake up and fly."
