Chapter 3 - What's Going on? from Life Is Hard, Food is Easy - by Linda Spangle

The discussion of heart hunger and head hunger is very valuable, both types resonate with me. These issues are something I would benefit from paying more attention to.

Emotional eating of both the head hunger and heart hunger varieties DOES postpone what I need to do to address my situation.

The references to feeling invisible and wanting it to be my turn could have come straight from my mouth - in fact those words have.

"Like bandaging a skinned knee, food temporarily hides your wounds but doesn't make them disappear." Wow - what a powerful image.

I am pondering some ideas for 'insteads' - what to do in the moments of head and heart hunger. Head hunger insteads: walk, exercise, deep breaths while saying to myself 'I CAN do hard things', clean a shelf, chew gum. Heart hunger insteads - lotion on my hands, crochet, cardmaking, plan for a social activity (craft class, hiking club).

    Feeling invisible certainly resonates with me. Will have to investigate the difference between head and heart hunger.
    Proud of you, Mary! You're really going after it.
