It’s Not Enough…

IMG_6039-2 copyBertha… has been swirling a thought around in my head lately… it’s not enough

It began after I had eaten enough to be full… but the food wasn’t very tasty and I still wanted something more… a great opportunity to get off the healthy eating plan I’d been following…

It’s not enough to be full… you have to be satisfied…

I’ve contemplated that… and it’s so true… when I eat cardboard food in an effort to lose weight… I continue to want to eat because… my longing for food that tastes good isn’t satisfied… and sometimes I overeat because of it… thankfully… I don’t have to eat cardboard… there are many tasty things which are also wholesome… and I can save room for just a tad of something decadent and be satisfied…

Of course… Bertha… didn’t stop there… EVER…

It’s not enough to have a job… you have to be gratified…

It’s not enough to have a home… you have to appreciate it…

It’s not enough to stay at home with your kids… you have to engage with them…

It’s not enough to…

Well… you get the picture… and I am still contemplating this concept… and she is still coming up with examples… some of them for me… and some for you… she’s generous like that…

We’d love to hear your contributions to the list in the comments…

Live Your Options…

Shopping FrustRecently I was shopping with a friend… who complained about the checkout system of the store we were in… I opened my mouth to respond… but… Bertha’s… voice popped out… instead of mine…

You don’t have to shop here… if it bothers you… shop somewhere else…

Well… thankfully that breezy quip didn’t start and argument… but I was glad to get out of the store just the same and carry on with our day…

It wasn’t until I got home that… Bertha… told me…

I meant that for you…

Huh? How could that be meant for me… I wasn’t the one complaining… although I did find their system to be a little… okay a lot… cumbersome…

Of course… Bertha was all too happy to fill me in…

Seems as though she was referring to my life… not my shopping habits… and the times that I complain about the way things are… while continuing to do them… just the way I always have… without considering that I always have other options…

So… today… I think some contemplation time is in order… to consider what I’ve been complaining about… what my options are… and how I can live them…
