Living Life to the Fullest....Regardless {Psalm 150:6}

So my temporary lactose-free diet has turned into more like a not-so-temporary dietary restriction, and now includes: soy, citrus, soda, whole grain, and just about any vegetable besides avocados... Now. I'd be lying if I said this wasn't limiting in someway, BUT, I would also be lying if I told you the overall quality of life is diminished because I cannot eat pizza, cookies, or ice cream. It sucks, oh trust me it does... but I do not base my life's quality on the foods that I can and cannot eat. Now yes, I have lost some weight.. 11 lbs. and counting, but I am doing what I need to do to either maintain or gain... No bobble head here!!! :)

All in all, it has been an adjustment, but a good one. I watch what I eat and I take tons of vitamins. I learned that hard way about not taking those. Apparently not eating vegetables or fruits for a month straight will leave you weak, fatigued, and faint.. lol. But all in all I am thankful. Thankful that I am building memories despite the abdominal pain, continual bathroom trips, and constant fatigue.

Today I learned to drive a stick shift! Yet another thing to cross off of my list. Yesterday I reserved the rental car that Anna and I will take to the beach next weekend, I painted a "farmer's apple red" accent wall in my living room to add a pop of color, my laser hair removal treatments are going wonderfully, my portfolio is almost complete, AND I am making provisions for Ciaro (my pit bull) to be brought to Milledgeville in the event that the house at 1148 sells before I graduate again in May.

These things go to show that life keeps moving....regardless.  Everyday is a gift, every life is precious, and every memory should be cherished.. From my "me" time, to my family time, to my friend time, I get on my knees every night and thank the Lord for it. The people in my life have all been strategically placed in my path and have all had a part in God's plan for me.  This UC has a part as well. Maybe to show me how strong I really am, or make me appreciate what really matters, or to make me want more for my life that to just slum through it... Whatever his plan is for me, its gunna be a doozy! I am thankful and excited about what is in store, and blessed to say that even though I have only been on this earth for 22 years, I am living life to the fullest!
