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.

OK, so according to today's triple-J news, researchers have discovered (wow) that adding vitamin A and zinc supplements reduced the number of incidents of malaria by a third. I ask, don't we
already know that good nutrition would protect against diseases? And, wouldn't an overall healthy diet be a better option than pills? Of course, I see why giving pills to malnourished kids is a cheaper option than feeding them...  :( 

My dietary patterns ARE forever changing. My recent pattern is: first meal after noon, two (mono) fruit meals, in the evening mixed vegie juice and apples. I continue skin brushing, but it seems to me that it is my recent diet (no overeating anymore) that plays a major part in me feeling better and better. I do begin to see some signs of change. If it is of any significance, I might share some photos later.

Some thoughts of mine that I would like to record:
I still believe that when our body lacks something, it lets us know. I think that the main cause of all health problems is denying the biological instincts while relying solely on mind.

I think that human body is very vocal in expressing its needs. One has to work very hard to supress these signals. In fact, probably most humans do. Hearing one's biological instincts can be effortless. Supressing them is a hard work.

I must say that I learn to let go (off old energy-consuming habits), gradually.

Luke has told me that he is noticing a remarkable transformation. My friend I met up with yesterday has told that I do look better. I am (scientifically ha ha) sceptical. But I must admit, there is something going on. Like, I seem to be getting leaner, my face seems to be getting clearer. I lost desire for overt fats. I enjoy dry fasting. I enjoy eating when really hungry.

Now, I must say something. When I created this site, I meant to focus on the diet. By now, it is painfully-and-releasingly evident to me that health is not just about the diet, oh no. Yes, the old list: exercise, rest, sunshine, blah blah blah, too. But, above all, it is allowing myself to live , without denying myself what I love. I realized that I paralyzed myself by denying myself that love. When I am finally beginning to allow myself to be who I am, I feel like life is filling my body again. I want to play the music, dance in colorful dresses, and love again people that I let go. I cry. I am blissful.
