Weekend a little stressful converting Gracie to a raw food diet.
She didn’t care for raw organic turkey recommended by our holistic vet, nor did she like the raw frozen duck I purchased either. Spent a fortune at the pet food store for various raw foods, hoping a few would entice her to eat as well as at Whole Foods for organic meat.
Yet…I am talking about what felt like drastic change. From cooked chicken, a little canned food, raw food, a little grain-free kibble to all raw in several different forms.
She’ll live, will I?
I found myself thinking about how I give everything all the meaning it has for me, my thoughts about this are meaningless.
HOW I was creating a story of awfulness.
HOW I was feeling hugely stressed out that I had to change her diet and get her to eat, feeling badly for her that she wasn’t going to “ever” get her favorite foods again.
To compound it, Bill and I ate some chicken for dinner, her favorite, so we kept her on the family room sofa, she cannot jump off of it, until we finished. That was very challenging for me.
Bill was non-plussed about it, he knows it’s best for her.
SO…bottom line, I intellectually know this regimen is better for her in this illusion…but do I have the strength and trust to just roll with it and not worry about getting through it with drudgery?
She won’t starve, right?
She’ll eat if there’s nothing else available.
A forgiveness opportunity I can welcome if I keep my heart and mind opened!
Not trying to define what I am experiencing it, just continuing to ask for help to navigate through this change which is the definition of the ego thought system.
Just a wonderful chance to choose again!
Have a lovely day!
