The Memorial Day weekend saw some amazing generosity at my house. Some sick family members showed up sick and still tried to continue working. Some friends showed up and actually got many handyman tasks completed. I am very grateful for all of it.
I think that as I become more senior, I am more grateful for the small kindnesses that happen in my life. I wanted to pay it forward by sharing some wisdom about weight with you.
I was once told by a relative that someone we both knew in common hated me because I never finished a diet. That particular speaker diet fat, which always made me chuckle. I know you have people in your life who sit in judgment of the way you look because they think your appearance is unacceptable. The unfortunate thing is that you took their words in and made them your very own attitude. Their opinion is abusive. To continue to think it is self abuse and if you want to get a handle on spiritual healing, this is one of the areas that require your attention, your affection, and your changing.
Self correction is a glorious thing and the ultimate payoff is you get to love yourself and the bodily changes become permanent. Diets don’t work because they do not involve self correction of the way you think. I talk about this in my book My Cats Have Seen Me Naked.
My friends/worker bees are still here today. I can hear the skill saw humming in the background. Music to my ears.
