Living...LIVE!

A few months ago, I read an article from the Huffington Post titled How to Get Flat Abs, Have Amazing Sex and Rule the World in 8 Easy Steps. I assumed it was an article similar to the ones you see on the cover of Cosmo (of which I haven't read in years), so I ignored it when my friends first started posting it on Facebook.

When multiple people posted it and started leaving comments alluding to their being more to it, I decided to break down and read it. I have this secret hatred of all things Huffington Post, and I'm not sure why. I think it has something to do with something I heard they stand for a long time ago, but I honestly have no idea what it was or if I should actually despise them. At this point, I'll occasionally read their articles, but I always keep in mind that they might be slanted or have misinformation or do something else that will tick me off.

I am incredibly grateful that I read it. Not because it was something I necessarily needed to hear because it is how I prefer to live my life anyway. (Did you break down and read it yet--if not, I encourage you to do so.)

If you were to apply these things directly to the gluten-free diet, you would have my outlook on it. Stop believing your BS that you can't do this. Stop with the crazy making: "Life is full of obstacles; we don't need to create extra ones." Stop making things so hard. Stop complaining for the sake of complaining. Stop thinking the waiter/waitress is going to hate you for asking a million questions. Stop assuming your family will hate you for bringing your own food/asking questions/doing whatever you need to do to get a safe meal at family gatherings and the holidays.

So tell me. How do you truly LIVE?
