Yesterday I made a commitment to a very dear friend--and to myself--that I would begin anew with eating mindfully.
While I do not feel that I have fully gotten away from it, events in my life have been unusually stressful in the past year--as they have for many around the globe. I have all-too-frequently turned to food for comfort.
Today, I need to do the simple task of re-aligning myself with healthier eating, and that will be a lot of thinking about how to use food as a support to living, rather than just comforting myself with it.
I think it may also help with the growing depression I've been feeling over all the things that have occurred in past months. Finding something constructive and spiritual is exactly what I let go of as I turned, in a self-absorbed way, too far into myself--seeking soothing more than solutions.
