The Old Tooth

Saturday, October 12, 2013

I've always been a little annoyed reading when someone says: "The weight just FELL OFF." Just the concept that someone could do SO effortlessly what for me is a major effort, galled me a little. I have to confess it.

Then yesterday I was listening to an inspirational podcast; the speaker talked about old beliefs being like an old tooth that is ready to come out and let the new, strong white one under it come up.

It just hit me so strongly that all my old weight was just like an old tooth. Soggy, wobbly, old and tired. And super READY to fall off. And I need to just let it FALL, instead of somehow fearing the loss and bringing it back again.

I WILL let it fall.

Thoughts from Geneen Roth

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

We want to wake up thin tomorrow. We want to be successful now. Me too. I wanted those too. And then I realized that it takes great effort--and great effort begins with love. Loving my life, wanting to be here while I was here. When I realized I really wanted that, when I realized I was missing out on what I loved, I became willing to make an effort. At eating when I was hungry, at stopping when I'd had enough, at being present when I was with my husband. At seeing what I saw and feeling what I felt.
When you are willing to love your life, you become willing to do what it takes to align that love with your everyday actions.

...I saw that until we believe we ARE enough, we will never believe we HAVE enough. And conversely, once we know we are enough, nothing can ever convince us otherwise. And our experience of having whatever we have utterly changes.
