I had made myself vulnerable.
I had shared my stories of pain, not-good-enoughness while growing up, and how for most of my life I had distracted myself from feeling my feelings.
Now I felt naked.
I needed to hide from the intense feelings...
So, I crafted my escape plan.
As a former self-proclaimed birthday cake freak, I once took delight in all the important cake questions:
Bakery or homemade?
Chocolate buttercream frosting or vanilla fondant?
Raspberry filling or mocha?
As a Healthy Living Strategist, I help many people eliminate or reduce the sugar in their diets to help them move from feeling like, “I can’t have it” to “I just don’t want it”. I have learned that different approaches work for different people. Some people like to take a break from sugar and get quick results from my “Ditch Your Sugar Itch” program, but others prefer a slow and steady approach.
Let's face it, we all know what we are supposed to eat healthy, but actually doing it is another story...especially while on vacation.
The bread, the wine, the cheese, and the gelato.... they all call out to us. Eat me! Eat me! No, Eat me!
Are you a busy, stressed person who doesn't have the time or patience to meditate?
I get it. I used to be that way too.
When starting to meditate, it doesn’t matter if you meditate for a minute or for an hour; just that you take the time to commit in whatever way you can to this beautiful practice.
