Ingredients: one avocado, assorted frozen fruit, honey, Greek yogurt, almond milk, apple juice, ground flaxseed, tumeric, NutriBullet’s SuperRed SuperFood, MegaFood’s Daily Energy, MegaFood’s Daily Purify, and your appreciation.
Gratitude comes from within. Write down two things about yourself that you are grateful for and a third thing about yourself that you see as a negative, which you are not currently grateful for.
Pour some frozen fruit into your blender. Now, add three spoonfuls of Greek Yogurt. Cut the avocado and add it into the blender. Pour in your powders and top with a layer of honey. Fill in the empty spaces with almond milk, and then pour a splash of apple juice. Blend!
Recognize that these ingredients were initially separate, and acknowledge that you are combining them all to become one. Think of the third thing you wrote down, which you are ungrateful for. As the smoothie blends, accept that part of you. How has that made you a better, stronger, more complete person? Let go of the negativity and recognize that you are one; a oneness which includes positives and negatives. Consider how your wholeness can grow from each and every today into all of your tomorrows. As you accept your flaws, you become grateful for the complexities in a simplified unity of your self.
Gandhi spoke of this unification when he revealed: “I honor the place within you where the entire universe resides; I honor the place within you of love, of light, of peace; I honor the place within you where, when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us.”
Honor the place within you where the universe resides. Honor the place within you of love, of light, of peace. Honor this same place within others where, when they are in that place, and you are in that place, you become one. Your belief in outside forces are less important than your own belief in yourself. Believe in yourself.
