You Get What You Send Out
Dear Tonya (and research assistant Kelli), this is an email responding to your March 2012 newsletter. Mostly the “What you need to learn from people you disagree with” section. I think it’s interesting that you say that a “raw food lifestyle makes you deeply aware that you get what you send out”. I have been trying to eat as much raw foods as I can, and the more I do the more I’m aware of my own actions. I still feel the need to every once and a while indulge in the warmth of a cooked meal with meat especially when it’s cold and blustery out lol . That being said I really appreciate hearing that words only carry a hurtful meaning if you yourself allow them to. I’ve been experiencing a lot of negativity lately from outside sources and instead of being hurt, I’ve turned them into learning tools. To hear someone else confirm my recent discoveries is uplifting. I don’t know if I will ever be able to completely shut out meat and cooked foods but cutting out nighttime meals and eating mostly raw is certainly do-able for me! Thank you for your kind spirit and informative ideas. I will continue to put out only what I want to receive in return!
