Today I was feeling compelled to talk about the things we find that we really want and we work hard to get. You get so close to acheiving your goal, then something comes up and changes your direction.
Want vs. Need. This is where I find myself today. I am very close to having raised all the money I needed to get the Almighty Vita-Mix dream machine. As it turns out, my husband needs some work done on his truck…so, there you have it. I found myself in a dilema. Should I start another fundraising venture for this need? I didn’t mention to him the money I had set aside for the Vita-Mix and I was feeling guilty, then I suddenly realized that I was the one who created this additional money and I could do it again. “Givers gain.” “Money flows to me easily and often”. This is an abundant Universe and I certainly will see the money flow back to me. We need to have the repairs done, but I Want the Vita Mix.
This brings me to the relevance of The RawMa Blog, Raw Food Nutrition and you. You WANT to be Healthy. You NEED to be Healthy. Your body is calling to you to create a sustainable environment for your health to live. You also WANT to enjoy the food that you eat but do you NEED to enjoy it that badly? Ahhh…now we’re getting somewhere.
You have a deep connection to food and it has taken control of your life. More to the point, you have allowed your mind to take control of your decisions. Ouch! That hurts. I know, because it happened to me.
Let me break it down for you. Here is what happened to me and maybe to you also:
Taste Buds and Mind automatic reflex –
WANT: Tasty Food, Chocolate, Sweets, Breads, Pasta, Alcohol, etc.
Feelings: Comfort, Safety, Peace
Results: Momentary bliss…then
bloating, guilt, weight gain, more guilt, discussions about it.
Resolved inner conflicts
Do the right thing for yourself. You deserve to live a long, happy life. The sacrafice you make today, could result in years added to your life and a ton of happiness and self-satisfaction knowing that YOU…ALL OF YOU – BODY-MIND-SOUL control your actions. You do not need to REACT to events around you. simply observe and let the good stuff stick to you as the bad passes you by. Do Not Engage in the Drama and it will not seek you out. Think about your wants and your needs then apply them to your life. Success can be yours.
