Yep, I do. I make stuff up. Sometimes in my relationships with people, specifically male people (I’m a straight female), I make up stuff that makes me feel bad. (I feel a 30-days to loving myself in relationships blog coming…). But for now, I am just using that as a contrast to what I’m practicing with my current blog – making up good shit about my body. Oops, I will go back to using the word stuff but you can read it how you like. I learned several years ago that I might as well use this imagination of mine to make up good stuff. It’s not always easy, though, with every topic. “A belief is just a thought you keep thinking”, says Abraham-Hicks. I had to break through this wall of beliefs that I made concerning my body and my worthiness and open it up a crack. Through that crack, the new stories could grow.
So here’s some stories I make up…All food is equally good for me. My mind shapes my body. It is healthier for me to eat what I want than to follow someone else’s “healthy eating” rules. When I am in alignment with source, I know exactly what to eat, how to eat, how to move, and I also love purely. I imagine that some of you are thinking – oh boy, she is in a fantasy world. She’s probably gonna die soon with that kind of storytelling!
If you are a fearless reader of this blog, however, you can probably get yourself to agree with my reality which is that these stories are much healthier than my old stories. I’ve already been eating whatever I like, and shaping my body with my thoughts, all the while pretending to be following the “rules” or thinking of myself as a bad girl for not following. I would place a large wager on the likelihood of my health improving with these new stories.
Tonight for the first time in 12 days I overate – meaning that my stomach is overfull and I’m uncomfortable. I have never been able to will myself to avoid overeating for more than one or two meals. My new stories just made it the easy thing. And overeating tonight is quite alright. I spilled some milk too. Not crying!
