They say that breaking up is hard to do.
Now I know I know that it's true
Don't say that this is the end.
The lyrics from Neil Sedaka play through my brain.
Purging food stuffs, old habits is difficult. On tv, I've seen the horror on the faces where someone comes in to clear out the "junk food".
Hanging on dearly to the familiar, indeed letting is hard to do. That is why the Engine 2 28-Day Challenge is comforting... it is only for twenty eights days during lent, in fact. As I kid I gave up stuff for 40 days, so 28 days is completely doable.
Yet I feel resistance lurking within. Letting go of the familiar... striking out to find new comforts. I am both excited and terrified.
I know that this is what I need to do for me and it will help me heal.
But breaking up is hard to do and it is time to say good bye... at least for 28 days.
