Have you been feeling like your life is moving faster and faster… like your nervous system is overstimulated and oversaturated… like there’s just so much going on that you feel like you can’t keep up?
I know I have. 🙋🏼♀️
It’s that all-too-familiar feeling of overwhelm. 😵💫
I’m not immune to feeling overwhelmed, I am human, after all – a highly sensitive one too!
But the way I handle it now, is so very different than how I would cope with it when I was an emotional eater.
I used to feel overwhelmed all.the.time, so I would emotionally eatall.the.time.
I would eat to numb how fried my nervous system felt.
I would eat to quiet the torrent of voices inside my head.
I would eat to buffer so I could just push through.
Back then, I’d make false promises to myself like, “Oh, when things slow down, then I’ll [go workout, eat healthier, meditate, sleep better, etc.]”
But I’ve learned that life didn’t slow down.
I was just sabotaging myself, my life, and the opportunities I had created – which gave me the illusion things “slowed down.”
Fast forward to today, when I feel overwhelmed, I see it as a sign it’s time for me to level UP.
That it’s time to support my body, my nervous system, and my whole self in an even better way.
So I can fully show up for all that life has to offer.
Because when I made the decision to heal my emotional eating, I told myself I didn’t want to feel numb anymore. I didn’t want to miss out on this life, my life.
And that’s a promise I’m keeping.
Something else you should know about me, is that I am personally committed to becoming a truer, better version of myself again and again.
I know that as long as I don’t extinguish myself a zillion times a day – with food or wine or retail therapy — that I will keep becoming.
I choose this.
I choose to become instead of numb.
I choose this a zillion times a day. Again and again. Forever.
What do you choose?
In service to your freedom,
P.S. Choosing to receive support was an essential part of my healing process. I can confidently say I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t let go of shame and my achiever mentality so I could receive the support I needed.
