It's Wednesday. Not only is it the hump day to the work week, but it's Wishcasting Wednesday. I love doing this exercise as I'm definitely one of those people who believes that what you put out into the universe is what awaits you, maybe not how or when you expect it, but I believe it happens.
This week's wishcast: How do you wish to nourish your self?
It's always a little strange how well these questions and wishes fit in with what's been on my mind. I know that I should focus completely on the mental nourishment, which I do want, but my immediate answer goes to food. Food has been a constant in my life for as long as I can remember - an enemy, a friend, but never really just nourishment. I've slowly been learning over the past year as I strive to get healthier that a huge step for me is accepting that food is nourishment for the body the way that words and music nourish me in other ways. It's neither enemy or friend, just how I choose to think of it.
I have to admit that I don't always nourish myself properly when it comes to food. Another thing I've been learning on this journey. I was raised with a mother who harped on every single thing I ate and my weight since I was little kid (even though looking back, I don't think it was necessarily warranted until I was older), but never taught me the proper way to eat or view food. I'm only now, in my early thirties, learning that the body needs fuel to survive and it's all about what type of fuel I choose to put into it that will help give me energy and make me happier and just provide me with the knowledge I'm doing everything I can not to follow in my parents' footsteps and to live a long life.
My wish is to understand that food is simply nourishment, nothing more.
