Dear Flower Lover
Today we were talking about eating to much. And we were reminded about the words of Karly Randolph Pitman
“Most of us run as fast as we can from sugar, our cravings for sugar, and from our fat, sugar addicted, out of control selves. We try our best to tame this unruly part of ourselves, to make her good, and to get her to toe the line. “Cut it out,” we want to scream, frustrated at the havoc she leaves in her wake.
And yet like a wayward child, she greatly resists our attempts to fix her. We feel caught between one side – our inner rebel who’s acting out – and the other – our drill sergeant who wants to whip her into shape. We ping pong between burying our food pain, hiding from it, indulging in it, despairing over it, avoiding it, shaming it, and blaming it.
All of these tactics bring suffering.
We don’t heal our sugar addiction by running, resisting or fixing. We heal our addiction by turning towards it, by shining the light of compassion on all our dark spots.”
All we can say is find ways to be kind to the part you are hard on which is only doing what it knows to do,until it knows better and enjoy the part that is doing its best.
e say, take neither loss or gain to heart-Do something kind to yourself today!
