Did you hear me talking to SELF?
Wednesday, July 20, 2011
From last Thursday through Sunday I was on a killing spree, well not really, I was just eating things that could surely shorten my life. Now the question is What happens to throw you a deep curve and make you forget the things you want desperately in your life and send you on an eating binge. I tried to get back control but it wasn't working.
So I decided to have a little talk with WILLPOWER, "Hey Willpower" I shouted from the deep crevices of my soul. " Where are you, where did you go"
In a tiny shaky little voice from far away came the words, " I ran off because you were abusing me." "Abusing you," I ask, How am I abusing you?" The answer than came from deep within was "You are burying me under a bunch of garbage that not only numbs me and makes me sluggish just like it does you. I can not be effective and help you stay strong and full of energy if you feed me a diet of junk food and over eat paying no attention of what it is doing to me, your willpower.
Let me tell you that was a very thought provoking self talk that will power and I had. And oh so true. That little 5 minute talk energized me and I have been eating good things ever since. It worked for me and I am so glad that it did. When I started the talk I wasn't expecting an answer to come back to me or to get my will power back. But it did! What ever it takes to keep us charged up and motivated. I am all for it. Call me crazy for talking to myself. But I will take craziness over being fat forever any day.
I hope in this journey we are on that all of us will not settle for losing our will power and spark. But will press in to ourselves and find out what is going on . We are beautifully and wonderfully made.
