That's how it feels sometimes. Writing to me is a craft. I put thought into the written word. There is permanence, especially in the internet. It can be an arduous process, especially for a perfectionist. That being said... I am hard on... Read more

Beck Pink Day 5 - Eat Slowly and Mindfully
Friday, April 14, 2017      4 comments

What a good reminder. Savoring our meals. It is amazing what we will wolf down if we don't taste it. This reminded me of using an adaptation of Geneen Roth's exercise "Two raisins, a corn chip, and a small piece of chocolate". Below is a l... Read more
Beck Pink Day 4 - Give Yourself Credit
Thursday, April 13, 2017      5 comments

This was hard at first, not so much. Being able to avoid the snack aisle consistently, now makes it a breeze. Avoiding the checkout siren, was solved by becoming a food snob. Self talk: "Only the Belgian chocolate will satisfy and I have to driv... Read more
