This is a very easy question to answer when you think of what you know about newborns. Let’s, for the purpose of expanding our thinking, elaborate on this question and it’s answer.
Babies in general are perfect. They arrive in pristine condition with little to no toxic baggage. They exist on milk made by their mothers or factory made substitutes that are, in all honesty, not the best second choice but, that’s a topic for another time.
They are clean.
Then, we begin to feed them solid food. Very slowly we introduce nutritious and wholesome foods. This is where we’d like to get you thinking.
Would you purée a cupcake, potato chips, a candy bar or pizza and feed it to this immaculate being?
Would you fill their bottle or sippy cup with cola, milk shake or energy drink?
Would you pollute this perfect piece of human amazingness with garbage food or would you feed it smashed up apples, squash, pears and…kale?
What we’re saying here is that you are amazing. You are a perfect being. You are immaculate. The only toxic thing about you is likely what you choose to put in your body and the attitudes you choose to adopt. These things are a product of choice. They are not you.
Choose to treat yourself like a precious baby. A perfect and complete being. You are truly that. Under anything you’re hiding inside of, you, that amazing fresh being, that person is there. The rest is a story.
Reach in, find that perfect baby. Nourish it. Feed it. Create an experience for yourself that demands respect for that flame, that being, that perfection.
Because, damn it, you are worth it.
