This is a blog entry that was shared with me an I though was really good. I wanted to share it with you.
Today I understand what food is not.
Food is not love. It does not mean I love you when it feeds you. More is not more love, it is just more food.
It is not medicine when I feel like **** and want to instantly feel better. It does not take the place of therapy. Or prayer.
It is not a ticker tape parade when I do something great and want to celebrate.
Food does not love me back. It does not care whether I love it or not. It basically sits there and has not opinion about me whatsoever.
Food is not "good" or "bad" as far as having any morality. It can be healthy or unhealthy, yes. And if I eat something I am not GOOD or BAD for having eaten it.
So, my relationship with food is changing. And I am feeling more empowered to be honest and really honor my body and brain and heart and spirit with this journey I am on
