I can see the angel within . . .
Friday, August 01, 2014
Periodically, I listen to the CD that accompanies Paul McKenna's "I Can Make You Thin" book/program. It's full of affirmations about healthy eating.
It contains an anecdote about Michaelangelo that I've been thinking about. There is a story that when Michelangelo was asked how he carved such beautiful angels, he replied, "I see the angel in the stone, and I chip away at everything around it to release the angel within."
So, there's an angel inside me -- a strong, beautiful, healthy, tenacious angel. By exercising (and sweating) and eating wholesome food, I am helping release her to the world. I don't have to become someone else (God forbid!). There's only one Alice!
