this post. I'm gonna tab this page and keep it handy. Teddy and I have both indulged ourselves over the winter (on different foods) and our waistlines are zaftig-ier than desired. I'm thinking instead of eating those foods, I'll try to remember to write them down.
Tangential writing ... Scroll down for Nudge 23 (unless you feel like reading).
It occurs to me that the stomach is an organ (machine). That actual bit that is inside of me (not the bigger bits hanging over my pants) is no larger than my fist. The stomach reacts like a muscle in that the more you exericse it (eat) the bigger it gets. The threat of warmer weather and less clothes is coming up fast. Spring's dark underbelly. Guffaw.
I'd love to continue with this kid-inspired nudge. It feels good. But let's do something else this week too. I'm thinking that the world needs more acts of kindness. That people who are in a bad mood might need a smile and a cheery hello this week. Is someone in line behind you impatient? Let 'em in. Is a co-worker really in a nasty mood? Offer to fetch a cup of coffee. Are YOU in a bad mood or feeling stressed? Tell someone and embrace it. It happens. Tell someone something wonderful and honest: her smile lights up your soul or his laugh always makes you laugh. Appreciate the people around you. Wrap your good karma around you and those you touch like a warm blanket. Write about it. How many acts can you do this week?
