Day 38 Juice Feast -- The Return of a Childhood Nemesis

My showdown? The hiccups.

I've had them sporadically on this JF--and they try my patience to the limit. Today they returned all afternoon and early evening. As an adult they have come and gone but mostly gone from my life. As an adult I have completely stopped trying to suppress them or find a solution to stop them--I just let the hiccups run its course. As I drove home from work I took several deep breaths, this by no means stopped the hiccups but it did bring my awareness back to practicing acceptance and lessened my growing irritation.

When facing my former nemesis if I choose to not draw but practice steely-eyed acceptance the loss doesn't seem so severe.
