Spreading The Spark

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

A few days ago, I tried to spread the Spark, but I wasn't successful. My mom has been complaining about her weight for a long time and last week she said she would start dieting to loose some weight. I told her that she should say goodbye to all those diets and get used to eat healthier and find healthier options to prepare food. She always uses way too much oil, butter and salt when she is cooking and instead of steaming vegetables she cooks them in boiling water until there are not vitamins left. I guess she is not ready yet. On the one hand she wants to loose weight but on the other hand, she doesn't want to change anything. I know it is not always easy and there are times I am scared and doubt myself, but I know that I can only benefit from those changes. Hopefully, my mom will be ready soon and we can support each other on that journey.

    Hey Tibi, it's very loving of you to care for and try to guide your mother. But you're right, she may just not be ready. Still, the words you speak to her are heard and probably roll around in her thoughts longer and more deeply than you think. So, don't feel too defeated if they're not put to good use right away. Just keep planting the seeds, and being gentle and do your best not to be attached to the outcome (meaning the if/when she takes your advice). Just give your thoughts with patience and love.

Good for you for doing these loving things for yourself, too!
