Dear Sweet Goodness,

I first off want to let you know how much I miss you. I remenise about the times we shared and how I had to have to with me wherever I went. You were refreshing on hot summer days and I even risked my life for you in the cold wintry storm.

I am sorry I had to let you go but it is good for me and my health. You have been awesome to me and I appreciate your goodness.

Farewell Sweet Goodness...

I know it's crazy huh? I have been in love with my sweet tea a.k.a. "Sweet Goodness" since I can remember. I never thought I would see the day where I had to farewell it but it has come.

After experiencing panic attacks and learning how to avoid them (caffeine and chocolate), I am learning that it wasn't so hard to let go. I began seeing the trigger signs and had to come to a reality that the "bad" things won't help it.

I haven't gotten this whole thing called "Life" down yet but I am learning. I am learning that like the sweet tea that can contribute to panic attacks, there are things in our lives that we could trade in. I could let go of bitterness towards some people and show some love (He loves), a heart full of want when I have what I need (He gives), and control over things I have no control over(He does). Like I said, I don't have it all figured out but I am learning and I think as long as we are doing that, we can't go wrong.

What can you trade in? Is it leading you to a life of unhealthiness? Something will always contribute to something. I want my life to contribute in a rewarding positive way. How about you? Are you willing to give up that "Sweet Goodness" that looks good but in the long run isn't?
