With the flooding of my media room the other day, I really did not know if I would turn to food. But even with all of my precious belongings ruined and under water with weeks of replacing and rebuilding ahead of me, I will persevere.
Of course food does seem like a very tempting offer right now. But I will continue to try and eat right because short -term satisfaction turns into long- term failure. Why mitigate the damage by doing more? I just need to find a way to do something else.
Besides, there were so many other people that have lost so much more in far worse situations.
It has been a very hard last number of days. Having a aunt die, losing your best friend and then most of your material things, really makes you have to count on yourself.
I like to think I am stronger then other people emotionally, though the truth is that I usually cut people off and turn to the worst foods for comfort…one of the reasons I know that cost me a dear friendship.
I think what I have learned is to turn inwards instead of out. This way I can make the most out of me and learn how to cope with unexpected life.
There has to be a better way. My diet is myself. It has to be my choice how to deal.
If I have learned one thing from my three years producing ‘Finding Thin’, it is to turn inwards first. There is always another day to look forward and learn more about myself. And I’ll outwardly show it as I persevere.
