Half Full or Half Empty?
Having a wonderful and relaxing Memorial Day weekend. Today my husband and I invited 8 of our dear friends over for a BBQ. Great food, company and the weather was beautiful.
I've been thinking about how lucky I am lately. Sure I have problems, who doesn't? But I think it really depends upon how you "hold" those ideas. Problems are really ideas, or a story we tell ourselves about reality. I'm not happy about my mother's aging, dementia and the difficulties this presents for my life. Nor am I happy about the knee replacement surgery I'm having later this month, on and on and on.
Ok, so what am I going to do about these things? My choice is to enjoy the other aspects of my life, good food, my friends and family, my beautiful home and garden and my 2 wonderful dogs.
What does this have to do with nutrition, conscious eating and the other things I usually write about? I think that remaining conscious of what's real and true is my life includes not just food, but all these other aspects of my life as well. I can CHOOSE to look at my life as half empty, or half full.
I do have issues with my health that affect what I eat. I can CHOOSE to be unhappy about this, or I can CHOOSE to eat in the way that's healthiest for me, and enjoy all the wonderful things I CAN eat.
