There is something I’ve been really tested with during this whole skin detox: remaining happy and upbeat! On certain days, I’m filled with next to no energy, and my skin continues to take quite a beating. Even though I’ve read that severe skin detoxes can take anywhere from three to four months, or in some cases, even more than that, I’m ready for all the toxins to leave–once in for all!! It’s only been six and a half weeks, but I’m ready for everything to clear out now, so I can go back to my regular, happy self.
Not being able to train my daily martial arts has been quite an adjustment, but I got to keep telling myself this too shall pass, and I’ll be right back in class like it was only yesterday. Throughout the past two weeks, one particular documentary has been my go-to source of bringing back my smile; it’s entitled Happy and for under twenty dollars , you can see all the ways to keep that smile going from ear to ear for yourself! I’ve watched the film almost a dozen times in less than six months, and it never seems to get old for me; you see people, with little to no money or other physical issues, making the most of their time on earth being happy, loving, and most importantly, ALIVE…
Another wonderful aspect of the Happy film is that it puts everything that is going on in my life in perspective. There are people basically living in dirt, with limited, or no, access to the basic necessities and resources to living life, so my skin issues drop significantly on the ol’ what’s more important scale. It was amazing to see these people from all over the world living very simplistic, healthy, and active lifestyles, without obsessing about money, or having more fancy clothes. Thanks to this documentary, I plan on living the same approach a lot of these people exhibited in the film–nice, simple, active, and loving! Without giving you the whole premise of the movie, I would highly suggest getting a copy and watching with your friends and family:)
Before I go, I’d like to hear your opinions of the movie if you’ve seen it, or what you do that brings you happiness and back down to center?
