I love food. I love to eat. I love to eat with people ó for me, food is love. Itís a way to bond with those I love, and, most especially, a way to care for them and express my love. With my eating habits steadily worsening over the last several years, and my presence in organic, natural and alternative healing circles increasing in the last year, Iíve come to realize that I donít much eat with people anymore. Not like I used to.
Iím embarrassed about my eating habits. I canít say that Iíve ever fully acknowledged that before, but Iím calling it out now. Iím embarrassed. I fear judgment and ridicule. I fear that people in my social and professional circles will think Iím a poser. Well, there it is.
But! Iíve decided, for the sake of the blog and the sake of my authenticity (which is such a huge part of my wellbeing!), Iím not going to hide anymore. Instead, Iím going to tweet, every time I eat something, and tell you all what Iím eating. For me, itís a bold way to embrace my authenticity. It definitely feels scary, but my authenticity is important to me. And Iím feeling brave these days. :D For you, I donít know. Maybe youíll get something out of it, maybe you wonít. Definitely let me know, though! :D
Right now, at the beginning of my journey, I really havenít yet changed any of my eating habits. My goals right now are to try to make healthier choices in the moment and, most importantly, not judge myself when I do not.
So, there you have it. You can find what Iím eating on Twitter Ė either follow me @ewellbeing or just look to the left of this blog, where youíll see my constantly updated Twitter feed.
Happy eating! :D
