You say tomato…

It is amazing how the smallest and most insignificant things trip us  up and cause us to react.

It is a well known fact that I have a serious aversion (or maybe even allergic) to tomatoes.
Yes–tomato sauce, paste, puree, powder, and pixie dust sprinkled onto food to add flavor!
This means that I can not enjoy foods like pizza, salsa, spaghetti, lasagna, BBQ sauce,  most marinades, and -GASP- DORITOS! Nope! At the slightest touch, taste, and probably pjstomatoinhalation of this beautiful vegetable I will have grave reactions that usually ends in tears, high-doses of benedryl, and/or a swift jab in the leg with my epipen. It took about a year for me (and my husband) to learn all of the 1001 tomato-laced foods and remove them from my diet. I have narrowed the foods down to one thing- Everything!

It is amazing how the smallest and most insignificant things trip us  up and cause us to react.

Wait! Grab  that thought, hold it up to your eyes and take a look at your personal life. Gaze at the areas that you find most challenging. Are there some “tomato-laced relationships” causing anxiety and strife? Do you see areas in your life where you are stuck or moving too slow? Look more closely! What are the small and seemingly minor things that trigger inconsolable emotions and painful thoughts or memories?

These are the “tomatoes” in your life that are causing physical, emotional, and social reactions. Ponder them, decide what to do with them. Are there some things or people that must be removed from your “diet”? Make a choice and–Live free!

Be well and keep #Grinding
