Day 252 

Affirmation:

Food is fuel for my body.

I eat when my body needs nourishment, not when my heart does.

I eat to support my physical body, not my emotional body.

 

________________

Sometimes when we haven’t been accepted, understood, or loved, we learn to stop asking for what we need.  We stop looking for our emotional needs to be met by the world.  We quit sharing our pain and our need for support and comfort.  We learn to rely on ourselves to meet our basic emotional needs for love, comfort, and fulfillment.  And then, sometimes, we start to eat… and eat… and eat. Food can easily become how we feed our emotional selves.

We can ask the question, “With this food, am I feeding my body or my heart?” If the answer is “heart” it’s important to determine what is REALLY needed in that moment. Comfort? Support? Reassurance? Once the truth is made conscious, we can start feeding the spiritual and emotional centers with the (self)love and (self)acceptance they are craving.

Day 251

Affirmation:

I will laugh whenever possible today

I will smile as often as I can

I will balance seriousness with silliness

Just for today I will let my burdens go

_______________________

It is all too easy to become drawn into the heavy, dark, and serious side of life when so many external forces operate within that energy. Media sources-like television, radio, and print-bombard us with worrisome, angry, hateful and fear filled images and messages. Co-workers, family members, neighbors, and others in our daily experiences often do the same. If we aren’t deliberate and conscious in our interactions and choices, we can be brought down too. But if we pay attention, we can choose actions, thoughts and feelings that keep life light. We can turn off the heavy programming and turn on the light and fanciful. We can take a break from frustrations- consciously refusing to acknowledge them for just one day. We can surround ourselves with people, places, and things that makes us smile and laugh. And we can remind ourselves that life is just to short to plod through when we can choose to skip or even fly.
