Day 165 in my journey to meet Mickey
Today I am craving sugar something fierce! I want sweets in the worst way: cake pops from Starbucks or Dunkin’s doughnuts or even a tasty cupcake from Walgreen’s. I want sugar!
So…my plan for today is to just say, “NO!” I won’t give in to sugar. Not today. I can fight it for today. I am hoping against all hope that this craving passes soon.
I am a bit down today. Having just lost a treasured friend, and having to prepare her funeral bulletin in my role as church secretary, has me a bit blue. Even the weather is gray and unforgiving today. My usual M.O. is to eat my feelings away. It’s what made me the big girl that I am today. If I eat enough sugar, then I just don’t care about things enough to hurt.
This is a new way of life. This experiencing and walking through my feelings without medicating (in my case with sugar) is still very new to me. But I know it is a healthier way to live. I want this way of life. I want to quit avoiding, and learn to face life as it comes. It’s tough, but I really believe it is doable with the help of God.
Peace to you all, dear readers. Meet you at the Kingdom!
