kick the habit!

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

my thoughts today are revolving around how to kick unwanted habits.

i'm cleaning house, using a lot of water. after 4 weeks in Africa you realize what a precious substance this is. so why let the tap just run while you're wiping and scrubbing elsewhere? which got me to singing 'you can't always get what you want...' (who wrote that anyway, was it the rolling stones?)

and waste. we waste so much. did you realize that while a huge percentage of mankind is going hungry, and starvation is rampant in some places, we are throwing away close to 50% of the food we produce? a lot never leaves the fields because of 'imperfection'!

we get what we need (how lucky we are). so why the binging? that's a sure sign of lack or deficiency somewhere. probably not material lack, though. lack of care, of love. food is love.

get love, kick the food habit. get attention, excitement, purpose in life, whatever it is that's REALLY missing, to kick compensation habits. fill the void.

    So many things to appreciate that we don't really see until we get outside of our norm. Thanks for sharing your insights!

    Songwriters: JAGGER, MICK / RICHARDS, KEITHI saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was a footloose man

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you might find
You get what you need

And I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration
If we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse"

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you just might find
You get what you need

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"
I said to him

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need

You get what you need--yeah, oh baby

I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practiced at the art of deception
Well I could tell by her blood-stained hands

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need
love this song even so it hard to bleivesometime that you get what you need
great blog

    It is so true that we fill voids with food. Identifying the void is the difficult part. You have given me food for thought today (unintentional pun).

    You make so many good points in this blog. I have seen some positive changes regarding the distribution of food taking place in this country, but I sadly realize that many people in this world go hungry every day.
