WHEN I STARTED THIS PROCESS, I HAD NO IDEA HOW IT WOULD ALTER MY LIFE
Several years ago I purchased a beautiful cottage situated on a farm in Red Hill. It was my ultimate passion project. The plan was to get it completely off the grid and self-sufficient for many years to come.
It has a beautiful big patch full of different fruits, vegetables and herbs. It is my absolute pride and joy.
The entire redevelopment of the property was due to start and the unthinkable happened; Jake had his accident and both of our lives took a turn no one expected.
I believed the best thing was to move back to the city, sell my beautiful property and let go of all the plans I had for it, and for myself. What I didn’t know at the time, as I was throwing in the towel and withdrawing from my passion that I was actually experiencing the effects of PTSD.
Once the official diagnosis came through, things started to look up. I begun to see that my dark thoughts were just thoughts and I was not a slave to them. Despite these small realisations, the farm was due to be put on the market any day. I still didn’t think I had it in me to oversee this massive project.
Jake’s survival became the number one priority for me while my passion project was put on hold, indefinitely. After Jake’s miraculous recovery, my passion for the property didn’t return with the same fervor. I felt overwhelmed by the sheer ambition of it and my ability to see it through while working and appearing on The Real Housewives of Melbourne.
WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH A TEATOX, I HEAR YOU ASK
I’m no stranger to a teatox and neither is Jake. We have done them for years with incredible results and last March was no exception. We did something slightly different that month – not only did we drink our Detox AM and PM blends daily we also completely cleaned up our diets to get rid of everything disruptive.
For the month of March we cut out sugar, fructose, wheat, grains, nuts, seeds, dairy and alcohol. It was a next level detox and the results even more so.
The clarity of mind I experienced is something I struggle to put into words – all I can say is, experience it yourself. My zest for life came back and planning for my future became an exciting process, instead of a daunting one.
During the teatox I was able to calm down, relax, rest and reassess my life. What did I truly want to do in 5 years time? Well, I wanted a little self sufficient farm, growing my vegetables and living off the grid. That has not changed. How convenient that I already had one.
SUFFICE TO SAY, MY PROPERTY NEVER GOT A LISTING AND I FEEL LIKE I GOT MY LIFE BACK
Jake, myself and the whole Raw Essentials team are about to embark on another teatox in June. This process altered something huge in my life and it could alter something in your life – we would love for you to join us and share the journey.
