It’s my intention to use food as fuel.
Food to fuel.
This week I took special notice as I grabbed for evening snacks at TV time, after I had just eaten.
I realized this happens nearly every night. This empty feeling in my stomach. And I respond by giving it food. But nothing satisfies.
It’s not that I’m not feeling it. I just realized, it’s that I’m misreading my body’s message.
I know because I’m doing something that, in my heart, I don’t want to do.
There’s something. Deeper. Something that’s asking to be heard. And addressed.
I don’t need to learn to control my behavior. That’s a band-aide. And it doesn’t work without pain.
The lasting solution comes when I deal with the TRU issue. Hear what it’s asking for. What I really need. And give it. To myself.
In this case, feeling the emotions of an old wound. Letting them out. Grieving. So the wound could heal.
. . . . . . . .
Our body knows what it’s talking about. We don’t always understand it.
If you’re doing things counter to your intentions, take notice. Something is off.
There’s a reason. Find it. And give yourself what you’re really asking for.
When you do, you will start doing what you say you want to do.
Without fighting. Without feeling deprived. Without having to count points.
Your TRU self knows not only the problem. But also the solution.

Can you see me and my umbrella?
Once you do, you can’t NOT see us.
