I feel like my brain is the one that keeps me from breaking old habits and making new healthy ones. I want to know why I do the things that I do and why I can't seem to stop doing them. I've got the devil on one shoulder and the angel on the other and that devil kicks the angels ass all the time.
It's probably terrible parenting but we tell our kids that things are all in their heads. You really don't like potatoes? Even though you haven't tasted one yet? It's all in your head, you've convinced yourself that you don't like that potato. But you don't know....
I don't really need sugar.....or wine, but my brain thinks that I do and talks me into it.
I've got to find a way to override the system.
"You leave old habits behind by starting out with the thought, 'I release the need for this in my life." - Wayne Dyer
I release the need for sugar and alcohol in my life. I don't need it and it's not good for me. I can live without it and I'll be healthier without it. My kids don't need it either.
Today is another day. Another day to do my very best and resist the devil.
Lord help me.
