On this blog, I wrote previously on perspective and how powerful it can be. I hope this three part series help create positive change in your life, or at least, find the perspective required see what change is needed.
Today I will attempt to re write the phrase, you are what you eat. While I agree, if you eat healthy you’ll be healthy, I think also think you can become healthy using, what you eat with.
Want to know more? Read on … then head to the kitchen.
We all know the term “fork in the road”, but what if the road your travelling doesn’t offer choices? Despite your current head space … you actually have two choices, regardless of the road you travel.
First choice, remove your blinkers! Despite what your mind is telling you, we all have an alternative, we simply fail to see it.
So, your blinkers are now off, or maybe they were never on in the first place and you still can’t see an alternate route? Drop all you’re doing and head to the kitchen.
Open the top draw, it’s most likely full of cutlery. Grab a fork and stick it firmly in the road your life has taken you on. Seeing a fork isn’t always easy, but you can place a fork in ANY road.
Don’t rest yet, creating the fork is the easy part. You’ve got a decision to make.
Left or right, high or low … I can’t tell you what decision to make, but I can provide further support along the way.
The advice may not be ground breaking, but it will be straight forward. It’ll be able to be applied to anyone’s life.
No specific life stage is required but if you experience best with the physical, you may want to once again reach into your cutlery draw.
This time ignore the forks, multiple forks in one road is just going to make things confusing; grab a knife.
It’s amusing what humans do with spare time. Eat, paint, sleep, watch TV, talk, run, fight … in large, they waste it. I’m not immune from this condition, I once spent an afternoon counting loose change, only to put it back in the same jar I kept in. On another, I decorated the back shed with coasters (which I’d collected in another time wasting exercise).
I’d suggest, next time you have a free moment, like the one we’ve just made with our fork … you cut your life into pieces.
Let it all hang out, don’t hold back. Honesty is often hardest when you’re talking to yourself. As the years pass we all lie to ourselves. These lies are then compounded as we continue to live them out. Cut it all to pieces, separate the truth amongst the lies. It’s the truth that’ll help you choose your direction.
So you’ve discovered a fork in your life’s journey, and taken a knife to your life, finding truth amongst the lies … what now?
Take care here, when you cut away the lies, you are often left with confronting truths. Enlist a close friend or counsellor when times are tough.
Truth is as heavy as it valuable; you’ll never be able to pick it up alone. Grab your spoon and call your mate, because this spoon will be heavy.
Scoop up the truth that remains and leave the painful lies behind you. If your friend cannot help, or on of the lies you were living was, that you had friends, call Lifeline (13 14 11), there are trained counsellors on the phones 24 hours day, ready to help.
Enjoy your new journey, live with confidence in your new found truth, and remember, you can always find help … whenever you need it.
You are now, what you eat … with!
This will hopefully help alter your life journey, or if not, see it in different light. If I haven’t helped you make a positive change, I hope to help you get to a place where you can make a change in the future.
