Today I’m really tired.
And I just want to eat chocolate.
Or cake covered in chocolate.
Basically, I want to stop feeling what I’m feeling and eating sounds like a mighty fine idea to me.
But then I stop.
And I think…
As good as chocolate covered cake sounds right now, will it REALLY give me what I’m craving?
Will it bring me the soothing release that my heart is crying out for?
Will it hug me and tell me that I am loved, no scrap that… ADORED?
Will it kiss my forehead or hold me until the tears that shudder by aching body become gentle sobs?
No. It won’t.
Emotional eating is like living in a glass cage.
You can see the rest of the world, but you don’t want to be a part of it until your thighs are slimmer.
So in an effort to bring 2015 to a close with ease, grace and flow, I have decided to open my heart and allow my own love in. I have decided that if there is one person I deserve to show up for, it’s me.
I am worth it.
Not because I’ve earned it. Not because my thighs are the size of pencils. Just because I’m me.
And that is reason enough.
