You know those moments when you hear a song or see a movie and it wakes up some deeply stored cellular memory within you? This happened to me the other day. I was watching the movie Enough Said and the main character was saying goodbye to her daughter as she boarded the flight to head off to college. Before I even realized it my eyes flooded with tears, and I started sobbing with this immense sense of grief.
Health & Well-beingSpirituality
Sometimes we stay stuck in a fight with our weight or health or food because we are afraid to own what it is we TRULY desire. Our weight and wellness goals become a distraction that keeps us from setting our sights on the thing that really matters most to us and taking the courageous leap to bring it into reality.
Instead of mindfully eating foods like grains, tubers, fruits, and goat’s or sheep’s milk dairy when faced with cravings for sweetness we turn to much more extreme sweet flavors like refined white sugar in baked goods, pints of Ben & Jerry’s, or even excessive amounts of whole food desserts made with heaps of honey and maple syrup. Yep, I found myself feeling the affects from these choices made over the past winter, and it ain’t pretty!
