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…

Jane…

  1. Bertha always cracks me up. She is a cross between Yoda, Sage Wisdom and a mother. Its always interesting to see which of those 3 takes the lead.

    I’m in the process of writing my portion of our natural health newsletter. It will be about Infusion. If you’d like I’ll send you a copy. It may give you direction in how to take your desire for a healthy diet over the emotional eating wall. Give Bertha a hug for me. ~M

    • Oh… thank you Malana… I would love a copy! I love your description of Bertha and I’m always surprised by which part of her takes the lead as well. 😉
