Apparently I can be exceedingly dense... it just dawned on me, just now, that a major point of failure for eating "off plan" happens because of shit I bought at the store. So, in other words, the point of failure is not at home trying to use willpower to stop myself from eating something sweet or salty (whatever it is I'm "not suppose to eat"). The time to address the problem is WHILE SHOPPING - DON'T BUY IT!! How stupid and simple, and oddly easily escaped my attention is that??!! It occurred to me that I could write a book on how to shop. No one has done that that I know of... there's plenty of books on how to organize your stuff and get rid of your stuff... how about a book on how to avoid / monitor / edit getting the shit in the first place!?
On another front... Daily Reflection: The secret of fulfilling my potential is in acknowledging my limitations and believing that time is a gift not a threat. I'm still, right now, in this moment, rushing and impatient. The whole idea of not expecting things to resolve overnight is TOUGH! I've been reading through old posts and my "sabbatical time" took 2 months but was NOT focused. The excuse? Don't have one. I have been thinking that I would continue the "time off" and I think I will. Hope & Power is DONE, just in time to start again. I DID NOT finish ANYTHING regarding promises early on in January. I did NOT stick with the 10 day detox past day 4... I have gone to meetings but have not stuck with Weight Watchers either. I started the Artist Way and have yet to do day three of that process. What the fuck is the matter with me? This post, by the way is an update to the original date... today is 3/16. I'm venting and about to go out and do my Morning pages now that it's 3pm. FUCK!
PS It's amazing how many positive images there are of shopping...healthy food in the pictures! No shots of the chip aisle or the ice cream sections! Try it... google shopping and click images!
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
