- my bed
i went to the doctor a few months back cause I was really thinking I might have cancer. All the symptoms I had in the end were explainable (thankyou God) and the doc gave me the thumbs up. but it has got me thinking about my diet.
this brings me to the next line of thoughts.. why do I eat? apart from the obvious of course!
- Mostly I think because I like the taste, i like swallowing, i like chewing...
- I eat because I have been trained to finish my plate (as all good mothers tell their kids).
- I eat because i have started mistaking thirst for hunger.
- I also eat because I am bored or (worst of all) because I am attempting to delay doing something I don't want to do - like folding washing, or dishes, or vacuming, or picking up toys, or blah, blah, blah. I was born to be a mother definitely not a house cleaner!
and don't you hate it when all the blog entries you have mentally prepared disappear and you can't remember any of them when you want to write it down...
me, reub and another couple Jonathon & Dione have watched these DVD's recently on Chazown (pronounced car-zone). Basically a series based on the verse "without a vision (chazown) the people perish." Each DVD looks at something different like relationship with God, relationships with others, money, purpose etc. basically each DVD asks a similar question - "Do you have a vision for this area of your life?" It has actually been a thought changing series for me. It puts the little things into perspective of your whole life - why do we do things we do and if we look at our vision for a particular area of our life eg. great marriage, what would we have to put ion place or change to achieve it?
anyway, its far too late and my chazown for sleep tells me i need to pack up now. love ya and leave ya
