I’m a planner. I feel comfort in knowing what is going to happen next. When things don’t fall into place the way I expect them to, I get anxious. These past few weeks have definitely served as a reminder that I cannot control and plan out everything in life. Being faced with an unknown is not comfortable, but it puts you in the perfect position to learn and grow.
When you start your journey to make peace with food, it will be uncomfortable at first. The process of becoming a mindful eater will cause you to question most of what you know about healthy eating and lead you to challenge those thoughts. Going against what you have known and practiced for a long time is scary, especially when you don’t yet know what the outcome will be. No matter what the outcome of the process is, you will definitely grow and learn more about yourself. That, in and of itself, is worth it.
