18 Good saturday

Sunday, June 29, 2014

Yesterday I was standing in that village square of Sunne, looking at my daughter performing her hula hoop routine as part of our show and felt that perfect happiness - the weather forecast said rain but we were lucky not to get any shower during our show and later daughter helped with the circus workshop and I acted fortune teller in my little tent. Not so rein proof so when the big shower arrived I had to have an umpbrella in my tent... wet tarot cards tend to stick too much...

Did not have many costumers though, mostly children even to small to really understand what a fortune teller is... but it was good practice and my happiness lasted all day. To be able to give my daughter these experiences, to be a street performer at the age of 14 - so coool!

As my sister lives close to that village, we visited her and had dinner tyhere - mushroom soup for me and sister, potatoes and suasage for sisters hubby and daughter. Later on I indulged some chicken nuggets and felt a little bad - but then decided that I am off red meat and I am off icecream and sweets, all other foods are ok even if I will try to eat less - but as long as I stay off my no-nos I am succeeding.

Lunch plate:

At the AA_meeting friday I mentioned that I am struggling with food addiction and that it is hard to handle - and a guy then shared about his food obsession - he has fought alcohol and drugs successfully but still falls into compulsive eating... and he had been told to meditate about the food every time he cooked or eat - to imagine all the ingredients "story" where they came from how they had been processed etc. that seemed interesting to me so I´ll think I will try it too.

    Interesting idea meditating over our food, at least it would slow me down!
    Glad you had a good day but sorry you were rained off

    How wonderful to read about your experience of happiness. I wish I could have been there to let you read the cards for me!
    I've read about the idea to meditate on the 'story' or 'journey' of the food in the book about mindful eating by Jan Chozen Bays. I try it now and then. It seems like a good practice.
