The Shift

Wednesday, Sep 30

I felt it yesterday. It’s a mind-shift that happens when I’ve really made up my mind about something, like quitting smoking or taking off the after-stopping weight.

As you know if you read yesterday’s blog, my intention is to eat mindfully. Consciously. I know how to do that, and I’m sure you do, too. Forget dieting.

And so another journey begins.

Our autumn weather is keenly beautiful–the blues seem bluer and the trees seem greener, and out front the aspen leaves are changing color, too. The crisp apple I ate as part of my mid-morning snack was incredibly delicious. I actually held that fruit and looked and it and wondered when was the last time I enjoyed an apple that much??? Maybe it took my tastebuds three months to come back, I don’t know.

Here’s what I do know. There are other shifts I need to make in my life. Maybe there are in yours, too. And that’s okay.

Darn, that apple was good.
