In the practice of becoming more open and vulnerable with you, I will admit this blog post was much more difficult to write than I expected due to the unresolved pain caused by others in the past over my food choices and habits. I believe people’s food choices should never be the subject of ridicule, judgement or backhanded comments.
When it came to understanding and communicating with my baby, I continued to build on the baby sign language being taught at daycare. In doing so, communication between us is becoming more clear. I spend less time wondering if I’m guessing correctly and more time trusting in his growing independence, knowing that he will tell me his needs and wants.
The same questions I asked my plants are the same questions I must ask myself. Am I getting enough water throughout the day or am I parched? Have I soaked in the sun’s goodness, while being adequately lathered in sunscreen, during my daily walk or while playing in the backyard with my son?
I have actually gotten out of bed during the desired hour and have kept my promise in happily sitting on the couch to continue my Netflix binge at night. So, bargaining with yourself seems to be an accurate next step. Surely, the last step has to be to put your feet on the floor.
