No stuffing please…
When our hearts are vulnerable or wounded, feeling weak to the temptations around us, hurt from something that brought us to our knees, or just plain old SAD….. This is not the time for stuffing the void with nonsense, It is not the time to go clothes shopping nor is it the time to peek our nose into the pantry for something delicious. It is not the time to call an old beau or wallow in self-pity or go for a quick fix. A false action taken to remove the feeling we are feeling will only mask the upset, and fill the hole temporarily. Just like a slow leaking drain or a puddle after the rain… the water that was just there will soon be gone. Oh sure, it can be filled again… but only to empty again.
A more permanent solution…. rather than stuff ourselves up with physical ME pleasure, worldly delicacies and self -loathing we can fill it slowly with kind gestures, positive actions and self-love.
This would be a good time to sit quietly and reflect on what is really going on. It may be the time to open a journal, the Bible, or that great book on the coffee table. It may be the time to call a friend, to do something good for ourselves. Find a new craft to take on, start to bake those amazing cookies for the Christmas Cookie swap, detail your car or learn a new makeup technique from an online video.
It is the time for healing, adornment and wonderfulness. A time to treat ourselves well. A time to be good and kind and loving to YOU.
Stuffing is fantastic on Thanksgiving and even better the day after, but stuffing oneself with bad choices which only leave us feeling empty tomorrow… is NOT the way to go.
Choose to fill your heart with the things that bring you joy and sit happily with that. 🙂
