It’s that time again. Eight pound bags of mini-snickers fill the Sunday ads. I used to think I needed to buy that candy early so it would be fresher. Of course, it was usually gone by the big day. Aww, the lies we tell ourselves.
That was then. I am happy to say that at this point in my life I have been able to reframe the holiday seasons, making them about connecting and people instead of food as superstar. I try to think about what I appreciate about traditions and, while I suppose these pumpkins could be food, to me they represent the cycle of the year…seeds planted last spring, growth through the summer and now these orange beauties welcoming visitors past the threshhold.
So as we enter into the last week of October, I challenge you to make your health your focus. Be mindful of eating to live, not living to eat. Food is just fuel so treat it like that. Keep your tank full by eating small meals every three hours. Focus on the fun of living, enjoying the season, and make it about connecting with others instead of connecting with candy.
I'm on an adventure to bring happiness, relaxation, and some shine to a stressed out world. You might call it a Divine mission. Covid Season 2020 has taught me some important lessons about myself and about you, but most importantly about US. I have written about those in a book called Shine: When Chasing Sacred Spaces Goes Dark, my 6th book which came out December 2020 and hit #1 Bestseller in 7 categories thanks to my readers. I teach an online class to empower empaths through writing and am holding my first writing retreat for empaths under the Full Flower Moon and Lunar Eclipse May 5-7, 2023 in mystical Mt. Shasta, California. We have sold our house, not bought another, and have set out on a synchronistic adventure with Kai, our 103 pound lab, at the center. We call it The Kainnection Adventure. Dogs are the equalizers of all. (Home base: www.jamieweil.net)
