10: Relationships are (usually) built around food

In honor of my final 10 days, I will be atempting to blog my top 10 thoughts/lessons/ramblings about my juicing fast. 
To begin, at #10, let me just briefly discuss what I have discoverd about food and relationships. It has become glaringly obvious to me how much of my social bonding has revolved around food! So much, that at first, I couldn’t figure out how to spend time with friends while juicing. I was resigned to living a life of solitude for 60 days because my brain could not comprehend how to socialize without a meal being inolved. 

Thank GOD I am surrounded by people who appreciate quality time and just want to spend it with me! I have been overwhelmingly excited to learn the depths of true friendship when I have watched people go out of their way to plan events with me that do not involve eating. So even though my brain was struggling, I am glad close friends around me are far more creative than I am! I have been able to experience some very fun times and make great memories without eating one single thing. 

So,  special thank you today to those people who have made me feel more special than pizza and chicken wings: you’ve taught me more than you know!

I am a 32 year old teacher in Georgia, originally from Ohio (Go Buckeyes!). I am also a singer and I recently taught myself how to play guitar. For fun, I enjoy reading and lots of Netflix binges, which is my American right! I have also been known to cycle, run half marathons, and do just about whatever I set my mind to. A charming shepherd-mix dog named Kingsley lives with me and keeps me laughing at his antics at every turn. I am learning how to love the life I live with each passing day. Sometimes it's easy...other times, I write about it.
