When it comes to food allergies, I question if there is a reason as to why one would develop allergies as it changes your life forever.
I’m a strong believer of “everything happens for a reason.” I think that when you look at the big picture and look at the events that happened in your life, it all makes sense, it all connects, and it all leads you to where you are now.
In regards to my food sensitivities, although it can be challenging sometimes, I’ve accepted my sensitivities and I’m okay with the fact that I have them due to where it has lead me now. Everything has changed for the better. I have a different outlook on life and more respect for my body. I eat a lot healthier now in hopes for a healthier life and a healthy body. I discovered so many new foods and allergy-friendly products that I get to enjoy that I never would have tried if I didn’t have my sensitivities. I have so much respect and am so thankful for these allergy-friendly companies. I now read the labels of everything I buy and have a better understanding of the foods I have been eating and putting into my body. I’ve gotten rid of the bad foods with added sugars, artificial ingredients, and unnecessary ingredients food doesn’t need and replaced them with more natural, organic, and allergy-friendly foods. I have a better understanding of food allergies and what people go through living with allergies. I understand how tough it is, how frustrating it can be, and how you may think having food allergies sucks.
I’m now able to enjoy my love for writing as I have my own blog/website where I write about my experiences and what I’ve learned in hopes to share my stories with others for awareness, a better understanding of food sensitivities, intolerances and allergies, and the daily struggles millions of people experience.
I started college majoring in Baking & Pastry, but didn’t like it and had to switch majors within the school I went to. I then found Media & Communication, which sounded interesting, but was unsure what I wanted to do. I did an internship in blogging, which also happened to be baking related where I wrote about recipes and allergy-friendly sweets as I was just developing my food sensitivities. I then found my love for blogging, which is where I am today as well as my love for baking where I baked some of the allergy-friendly recipes I found during my internship. Also in college, I had Fridays off where I got to babysit for a family I love, which started my love for kids and working with children. I now have a job I love working at an afterschool program where I get to spend time with kids as well as blog on my time off, workout to stay healthy, and bake/work on my baking and decorating skills. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I never went to the college I went to, developed my food sensitivities, and started babysitting. It all connected and worked out in the end even when I thought things were going bad.
So, when you are having a bad day or think things aren’t going your way, just remember that it all could be happening for a reason to make you a better person. Maybe it’s a lesson you need to learn to change your ways. Maybe it’s something that happens that helps you realize to get rid of those toxic people. Maybe it’s something that happens that helps you become aware of other situations and be involved in other things to spread more awareness. I think that in the end, it will all help you out and make your life better because everything happens for a reason.
