Sex, Drugs & Rock N’ Roll…

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

If you are an emotional eater and who among us are not? Then, like me, you’ve gone to the pantry, refrigerator and store shelves in search of something, anything, to fill that empty, self deprecating hole that yearns to be satisfied. You’ve searched for something sweet to take the bitter taste of life out of your mouth, gorged on empty calories as if it were going to save your life… AS IF!!!! Popped a pill or drank yourself stupid so you didn’t have to face what was really eating you. Wasted hard earned money cramming your closets and drawers with stuff and then turned to others to measure our self-worth and wonder why can’t I find a relationship that satisfies my every need?

Because we are Looking for love in all the wrong places............

Loving yourself more than food is a simple concept, one of my favorite quotes, but until we truly love our self; food, bad relationships, drugs and alcohol will only numb the fear that we are not worthy of all the wonderful things life has to offer. One must be perfect to be valuable. And if I’m not perfect then why would anyone love me?

I have some cracks in me… I’m not perfect. Neither are you… no one is. We are human. We are flawed… we are cracked.

I’m learning to love my cracks.

What a beautiful way of looking at being human. What a lovely way to accept our imperfections. And as we do we can truly begin to live a life of self love by forgiving ourselves for not being perfect.

You ARE beautiful… no WE are beautiful. Cracks and all.

Japanese Bowl By Peter Mayer

I’m like one of those Japanese bowls
That were made long ago
I have some cracks in me
They have been filled with gold
That’s what they used back then
When they had a bowl to mend
It did not hide the cracks
It made them shine instead
So now every old scar shows
From every time I broke
And anyone’s eyes can see
I’m not what I used to be
But in a collector’s mind
All of these jagged lines
Make me more beautiful
And worth a much higher price
I’m like one of those Japanese bowls
I was made long ago
I have some cracks you can see
See how they shine of gold...
