Well, what do you know – another season, another diet. This time though, my motives are much purer; I’m following a detox diet that is supposed to help remove toxins from my body and leave me feeling energized. And if I’m going to do this for three freakin‘ weeks, I really hope it does just that! It’s not so bad as far as detox diets go – I’m actually allowed to eat stuff unlike some other diets that have you drinking water with cayenne pepper. But, needless to say, Cheerios are not on the list.
As I sat at my desk at the end of the day today, I laughed to myself when I realized that diet or not, my little O’s of cheer had still found a way into my day. A while back, my sweetie the Acadian gave me a little gift. He called it The Stress Box. When I pulled it out of the gift bag, I realized it was a miniature, vintage Cheerios box. I kid you not! As I opened it up to see what was inside, he explained how he made it himself and filled it with oversized Cheerios. Each one of them had something different on the back that he knew would make me smile; photos of us, my family, Garth from Wayne’s World (come on, Garth makes us all smile!) and even one to honor my hatred for Coldplay. He told me that whenever I felt stressed, I should give the box a good shake, open it up and pull out a Cheerio. I’ve found that it works well for stress, but also frustration, writer’s block and even boredom. Best of all, it’s a sweet reminder that I am indeed a very lucky girl.
