Naming and Knowing…

Dinner was delicious tonight, we ate little shell pasta with some mild sausage, homemade sauce, with melted mozzarella cheese. My husband made his famous garlic bread which was warm and crispy from the oven. Yum…

The truth is as soon as I was done eating, I wanted more. So I said (out loud to myself in my dining room), “I want to eat more of this but I’m not really hungry any more, I just like the taste of it and the shell pasta is a comfort food. ” Then I left myself linger with the taste of the food I just ate thinking about how good it was to eat. Something amazing happened, by naming the craving and knowing why I was craving it was enough for me tonight. It released me from the call of second helpings.. That’s a lot of growth for me.

I am enough, I can do this. I believe in me. My wish is that you believe in you and that together we all continue to become more present and intentional about our choices.
