Personal Note from Sandee Nebel
As we mentioned last week in the feature article about emotional eating, emotional eaters and food addicts sometimes put life on hold. They promise themselves, and sometimes others, that they’ll pick things up again as soon as they lose that 5, 10 or 50 pounds.
What are you waiting for?
To me this is a reminder of my own personal philosophy of the “bucket list.” You may remember that 2007 movie starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman as two terminally ill men who were working through their list of the things they wanted to do before they “kicked the bucket.” They finally had their realization that there was little time left to do those things they put off for reasons of their own.
Well, my take on this is that I’m just not going to wait. I am checking things off my list right now, staying mindful in the moment and fully present for my clients, family and communities. I daily express my gratitude for everything I have and everything I get to do to fulfill my passions—things such as taking courses, going on a big family vacation, and of course, doing my life’s work helping people recover from disordered eating.
Thank you for reading this, and for being part of my “bucket list.”
Now, what are YOU waiting for?
