My Daily Bread
Monday, September 07, 2009
I love food. I love to eat. I love to eat with people — for me, food is love. It’s 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, I’ve come to realize that I don’t much eat with people anymore. Not like I used to.
I’m embarrassed about my eating habits. I can’t say that I’ve ever fully acknowledged that before, but I’m calling it out now. I’m embarrassed. I fear judgment and ridicule. I fear that people in my social and professional circles will think I’m a poser. Well, there it is.
But! I’ve decided, for the sake of the blog and the sake of my authenticity (which is such a huge part of my wellbeing!), I’m not going to hide anymore. Instead, I’m going to tweet, every time I eat something, and tell you all what I’m eating. For me, it’s a bold way to embrace my authenticity. It definitely feels scary, but my authenticity is important to me. And I’m feeling brave these days. :D For you, I don’t know. Maybe you’ll get something out of it, maybe you won’t. Definitely let me know, though! :D
Right now, at the beginning of my journey, I really haven’t 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 I’m eating on Twitter – either follow me @ewellbeing or just look to the left of this blog, where you’ll see my constantly updated Twitter feed.
Happy eating! :D
