I've been quiet on the interwebs. Perhaps that's because I am writing? Not exactly . . .
I have been hanging out in the world of willingness and grace. Mostly because I don't know how I get out of personal ruts and change for the better. How I let go of self destructive behaviors.
But I get out of them.
However, even though I've let go of a lot in my life, there always seems to be a lot more to release.
How does one become willing to change for the better? Change is scary, even when (especially when?) it's for our own good. Our flawed thinking has served us in some way.
have struggled with some form of anxiety for most of my life, which is
why I am so grateful that I have the practice of writing as the
cornerstone of my Life Survival Kit. I have been writing, but I haven't
been sharing, as I have been exploring the vicissitudes of life in
regards to . . . my body and self-love.
Nothing earth-shattering to the outside world, but to me - oh yes. Another layer of the onion has been peeled, a new awareness has been birthed: the food industry has hijacked my taste buds and turned me into a zombie.
And I KNOW you feel me. Who doesn't have food issues? (Okay, some of you don't.) The battle starts early.
had beat myself up for as long as I can remember, and had supported the
diet industry for just as long. I had become addicted to "diet" foods:
sugar substitutes, low-fat this, no-fat that and wonder why I gain
weight. I lost weight on Weight Watchers, but only if I was willing to
be obsessed with food. I could never keep it up. I gained weight back,
and more weight.
I need to make peace with my body. I
need to practice mindFUL eating and break the cycle of filling my body
with addictive foods. I need to look at a shift in lifestyle that helps
me love and feel good about myself.
So back to willingness and grace.
have never tried cutting out gluten, dairy and sugar (and sugar
substitutes) before - in fact, that always felt too deprivational and
extreme to me. But seven weeks ago, I did just that. And yes the first few weeks were rough, but now I feel TERRIFIC.
found the willingness, the open-ness to try something new, and I'm so
grateful. I hope that I continue to have the willingness to sustain this
huge lifestyle shift, but for now I am grateful to be free from anxiety
Now to take this energy I've used to focus on my health and reflection and put it back on my writing . . .
Awesome to hear! Hope you continue to live well and healthy--and write/share more!ReplyDelete
Thanks Carrie - I almost feel like I've been taking an intensive crash course in nutrition, and reflecting on my relationship with food in my journal. But it's good to let y'all know where I am in my head!Delete
