Way #43: Forgive that Depressing Depression to Find a Way toward Gluten-Free Simplicity

  I have been doing really well with my gluten abstinence for the past couple of months.  I have fought off several relapse temptations and some really cool and effective pro-activity has kept my belly pretty happy at the same time.

  So….. why then am I soooooo depressed today?  

Logically speaking: There have been a couple of things in my space for just the past few days that have been somewhat intimidating, ruthless and unforgiving of me for who I am.

Emotionally speaking:I whine because  I figured that if I were Gluten-Free… like totally G-F>>>> then I would not have such troubles.

  OK … So… wake up.  Yes… being G-F is really super good for me.  AND… there are likely to be occasional moments of depression, particularly when faced with certain super negative energies….  Sooooo I guess… I can make the Gluten go away…. But I cannot always make certain other things go away.   Bummer?

  Meanwhile… I can try to forgive my moments of depression for now.  And I can dig my toe into the ground in order to push off and move on down the road again.  And best of all… I can do so with the confidence that builds each time I go through such junkyards and still avoid a pity party which can lead to a Gluten-Relapse-Fest….

  I forgive myself for feeling depressed this time.
