Happy Birthday to my Beloved Stone!
Reviewing my day in relation to yesterday’s draw, a realized it was very intuitive to how my day went. So I drew my stick for today. Fertility <> Boundaries are the code words. I find this interesting because I am transitioning my life as an HPS, moving towards empowering others to do portions of the job I used to do solely.
This has made my world much more fertile. I am studying and writing more per day now than I ever have and this is leading to a balancing act that I am struggling to adapt to. Today I had an interesting conversation with a friend on Facebook about how he equates hydration as a necessary step to keep one psychically healthy – PSYCHICALLY healthy.
When I get stress, I stress eat. I love me some Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Seriously. This is such a thing that when my husband priest and son notice my stress levels rising, I find that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups magically appear all over my house or in my purse.
Here’s the thing – eating creamy peanut butter goodness dunked in milk chocolate may be a temporary fix for my stress – it is a long term issue. I am trying to loose weight and bring down my cholesterol before I suffer a stroke.
So, just yesterday morning, I asked my accountability partners to make me accountable for how much junk I put in my body and how much water I took in or did not take in as the case may be.
Yesterday, it was a mini tater tots and mini Reese’s Blast from Sonic. Which was an improvement from the like three Reese’s chocolate bars I ate the day before, but still not my best.
Boundaries aren’t just about where we draw lines and ask others to stay in or out of. They are also about what we draw for ourselves. How do we hold ourselves to the boundaries we need to be successful?
It is no surprise to me that fertility and boundaries are bound through hawthorn. Because I have learned just recently that the more fertile my life is, the more stringently I need to apply boundaries TO MYSELF in order to stay sane and not put back on the nearly 20 lbs I have already lost.
What boundaries do you struggle with? Are those boundaries being broken by you keeping your life from fertility? What is your Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup?
I honor the energy of hawthorn for cleansing and restraint. I will choose what I place within my body, and empty myself of all that violates my personal well-begin. So mote it be. SITE SOURCE
