Meal Plan #82

 

I have struggled for many years to feel grounded and at peace with my life. I constantly question decisions I’ve made and I worry every day that I am not living up to my potential. These fears and general self doubt have been a source of serious anxiety in my life and I am exhausted by worries that I don’t have enough, that I don’t do enough, that I am not enough. And then another tragedy makes the news and everything seems so grim. 

Sorry, this is all pretty heavy stuff for a Monday morning, but here’s the thing: I’ve had a bit of head space to think things over, and I’ve decided that a real difference I can make today is choose to be better than I was yesterday. I can love more, I can try harder, I can make better decisions, I can enjoy and appreciate the little things. Being happy is so often a choice, just as letting myself get stressed out is a choice. Letting go and realising that I am not in control of everything is not always easy, but it definitely makes life easier.

I’ve returned from a busy two weeks of traveling and performing and am determined to make better, more productive, more meaningful choices; what better place to start than within my own home. Sharing family meals together is a healthy, easy way for me to make a positive, proactive difference this week. It doesn’t solve the world’s problems, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.
