Crashing on the Weekend
Why is it that we can be so good during the week and crash on the weekends?
Do we hold it all in and then expel on the weekend, letting go of anything and everything
Even when it comes to eating healthier.
Have we ever put the corrulation together of what we do and are doing each moment, each day to how we eat or relate to ourselves
By that I mean how many of us are really doing the things that we love, that our spirit whispers to us that are us down at soul level compared to what we think we should be doing, have to do or need to do.
Where does our soul fit in along the way?
It’s like we almost live 2 lives, one of holding on and one of letting go, chilaxing, quiet desperation. Then Monday comes again and we hold on, hold it in. We can restrict ourselves for the week, in many different ways but with food inparticular – no I can’t have that I’m on a diet or that is the wrong food group or I have to exercise 4 times this week as I ate way too much on the weekends, and then really let go and do / have whatever on the weekend. It sounds like restriction, demands, self criticism and never a feeling of being good enough.
We live in a world that we are constantly innedated with advertising telling us we aren’t good enough!!
What if we just let go and breathed.
Gotta pay the bills, dam I put on 5 lbs, my job needs me, my thighs are too fat, I’m not driving a nice enough car – blah blah blah,
I have asked or said to myself many times, we weren’t put on this planet to work 40 plus hours a week or work 40 plus hours a week at a job that doesn’t fulfil or isn’t in line with me, saps my energy or for a pay check
Yet I also know that some situations call for that as life and basic survival are way out of whack now.
Can you imagine if we were able to do what we love to do, or were good at or came easily to us how life could be different for each one of us and then how we presented ourselves to the world, to ourselves and each other……it would be much more in harmony.
Possibly the need to push the pain down with food would ease or stop all together – the need to numb ourselves on the weekend would stop, weekend what weekend? Life would just be lived each day all day, being present in the moment in the body……..so that the diet roller coast would stop, the self judgment, the stress, the denial, the pain…….we would be who we are meant to be right down at soul level.
What are you denying yourself?
What is whispering to you that you say one day, maybe but not now, or I can’t do / be / have that??
Who are you and what things do you love to have and do?
What is stopping you?
Come on now, really no excuses, no victims – what is stopping you?
Can you look in the mirror no matter what is going on in your life, how much you weigh, what you’re doing, where you are living, what you do for an income and say ‘hey you, I love you and you are enough?
Maybe today is the day!!
Make this weekend, the long weekend a great one and spend some time with you and loving you!!
