I’m sure you have this all figured out, but for me the whole living healthy scenario is a constant pressure. I will start off well, then stumble at the first sight of cake.
So far I haven’t stumbled, but I know the day is coming and so I have accountability in place when my emotions take over control and I want to throw my goals out the window.
I am increasingly realising the slower my life’s pace is becoming, in pursuit of happiness and success I have relied on some unhealthy coping mechanisms to sustain that lifestyle.
It creeps up on you.
I am grateful, super grateful for this time of reflection that I have set apart, because I am realising that I have many ways that I coped that need to be changed.
How about you?
A main problem I have encountered is where I place my self worth. In whom and what I rely upon to nurture and anchor my soul.
I am realising that food has become a comfort in times of stress and uncertainty. I have always known this is one of my weaknesses, but I want to change this coping strategy and I want to live beyond its crutch.
I want to see food as a source, not a reward.
I want to nurture my weary heart with other good things, rather than an abundance of sugar.
So the 10 week challenge is pushing a lot of my buttons, but I am so grateful that I have a husband who listens, challenges and nurtures my heart to live beyond this.
How about you?
How do you nurture yourself?
I am learning.
In fact I feel in this season of my life that I am a baby all over again. So much to learn, so much to let go of.
Love that we are never to old to start again and change.
All my love
