There Are No Accidents

I dropped and broke my coffee pot on Saturday. As soon as it happened, I knew the universe was trying to tell me something. They say there are no accidents in life. I've had an addiction to caffeine ever since my high maintenance daughter was born 14 years ago. Throughout my 5 year journey, the only thing I haven't been able to give up is caffeine, despite the fact that it makes me anxious and irritable. Listening to my body, I know that caffeine doesn't serve me, but I was holding onto it for some reason. I took this accident as a sign and have taken the plunge. I now see why I didn't want to give it up. I don't like who I am without it. I feel tired, barely able to make it through the day, and I experience miserable tension headaches. The body is amazing at adapting to imbalances, and if you don't pay attention, you could miss these compensations. But the body also has an incredible capacity to heal despite years of abuse. In 3 days, I'm already feeling more energy in the mornings as I bring in more nutrients and water to replace my fix. I'm still not free of it as it is a work in progress. I'm getting comfortable being uncomfortable, and step-by-step I know I will gain more energy back naturally. What is the universe trying to tell you?
