I can’t stop thinking about it. All day long it has been lingering at the front of my brain;
It will be good for you…
and then the doubt sets in:
What if it is horrible after the first day– and then you still have 20 days to go!
What if you go out to dinner, or you take a trip and can’t have any of the delicious food?
“Vegan, but with more restrictions”– does that sound like fun?
And then the other side pipes back up: It’s not supposed to be fun, it is supposed to be hard, a struggle, a sacrifice. It wouldn’t be a fast if it were easy.
I am telling myself I will start Monday, January 13th. Part of me is bouncing up and down going, “START TODAY! START TODAY!” like a 4 year-old, while the other half of me hurries to warn, “Well, you haven’t quite thought this through. Weigh the pros and cons”
So I Google “Daniel Fast Pros and Cons.”
The internet seems to think it’s a good idea. Should that make me feel better or worse?
