Looking Within

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Finding quiet time in my house is a chore in itself, but today, I took the day off from work so that is can look within and become attuned to the true needs of my spirit.

The past month, I acknowledged some difficult truths about myself. My triggers for mindless munching of junk food, sleepless nights, lack of energy and an overall "yuck" feeling. To sum it up in one word, it's WORRY. Worrying about things that have already happened or what will come tomorrow. Worrying stresses me out, takes all of my energy, instigates negativity and to comfort, I was turning to food...junk food. I'm now trying to change the way I think and change the way I react to daily circumstances. I'm working on staying in the present, keeping my mind in the here and now. I'm starting to feel lighter, not weighed down by the heaviness of worrying. And, hopefully, the scale will reflect this lighter feeling I'm having. It hasn't been easy, but I TOTALLY feel that I'm moving in the right direction.
