(BTW: this pic has nothing to do with my post, but I just loved the colors- music to my eyes, perhaps)
Sometimes the sound of my own voice in my head is the music I need to hear. Man, is that self-talk powerful stuff!! Its been an amazing (read: hard as hell) week, with so much insight, cooking, and personal growth. I’ve been looking at the power of my inner voice, especially as it plays into food and my relationship to choosing foods and why i choose them. Matt’s transition to Davis really pulled the carpet out from underneath me. My M.O. is totally to go into a victim mentality, or a fear of “what is next”, and then put my self-care on hold. Because I am prone to anxiety, I find myself wanting to back to my reliable tool of food (read: sugar) to calm the anxiety and mask the feelings.
This time around I’m a little more aware of that and have had lots of growth opportunities and ways to express myself instead of going into the food, or staying in the food when I dabble in the white stuff (because I do – hey, I’m human)
One of the growth opportunities comes in the form of learning how to podcast. I’m so excited to play with media sources for sharing Off-White Living. Its really healing to me to express myself verbally, and hear others express themselves too. I also attended an awesome yoga workshop at Flow yoga in Hood River, OR, which serendipitously gave me fabulous insight.
So, today I present to you my first podcast, which is a 5 minute insight on my relationship with my body and how yoga principles awakened in me a deeper love of self. Enjoy.
