Why wait to heal your emotional eating?
The moment your eyes are open, seize the day.
Would you hold back when the Universe beckons?
Would you deliver your litany of reasons why you can’t succeed, like a child’s collection of seashells, prized and labeled?
“No, I can’t step across the threshold,” you say with shame.
“I’m not worthy. I’m afraid, and I feel superficial wanting to lose the weight. I’m not perfect and surely I haven’t succeeded in the past. My meditation isn’t deep and my prayers are sometimes insincere. I chew my fingernails and the refrigerator isn’t clean. I still overeat even though I know so much about food. I fear what will happen when I really am free. Who will I be?”
Do you value your reasons for staying small more than the light shining through the open door?
Now is the only time you have to be whole.
Now is the sole moment that exists to live in the light of your freedom from food.
Perfection is not a prerequisite for anything but pain.
Don’t continue to believe in your fear.
This is the day of your healing.
PS. The above was adapted from a reading I heard in my yoga class last week. It pierced my heart. I’ve read it every day since as my hope and shining light. My intention is that you receive some relief from it too. xo
