Are you enjoying this kinda of Spring break? 🌼🌹
Maryland has been FOREVER cold…
Actually, I’ve never experienced a single digit temperature in my life before.⛄
Remember I’m that girl from Rio de Janeiro? The “garota de Ipanema” (the girl from Ipanema) walking down the beach under almost a 100oF. 😎
<< Test First Name >> I sprinted, as if my life depended on it, from the ‘calcadao’ (the side walk) to the wet sand.
in order to prevent blisters from popping up during the eternal 4-5 minutes stretch of sand the ocean of sand.
In fact this below freezing weather is kinda of cool.
First when I tell my friends in Brazil about the adventure of living in a freezer…cause it’s impossible to get out of the house for the fun of it.
I can see their jaws dropping and words of prayers flying over to heavens.
Their fears and swearing that they’d NEVER experience such a fate in life.
In such warm times the heart sings again. 💖
Yeah, it’s sad to admit that my mind lives in a past.
It horrifies my ideal self to say OUTLOUD:
“I live in a past everybody.” 😱
How could be any different?
How I’d function without knowing where those packs of Oreo or a can of spaghetti sauce are?
And… I trip on my preferences:
“Please give me a 🍧🤔
frapuccino machiatto with almond milk, double the caramel sauce and no whipping cream.
Unless your whipping cream is dairy free?
Size? Do you have a half grande?”
…’Cause it’s the right amount of calories I allow myself to consume.
in this indulgent (and unnecessary) treat.
“Let go” isn’t something the mind wants to do. It’s equal to death.
And who wants to die? To lose control?
Life exists on Earth ’cause it seeks survival above all things.
Don’t despair yet grasshopper…there is hope.
The good news is...well, there's lots of good news.
1. Admit uncertainty sucks!
I can see my grandiose junkie self vomiting: “Yes life give me more uncertainty. I want to look deep and spiritual.” nodding its head with a dignified flair. 🤪
It sounds so amazing when Ekhart Tole says:
(Oh by the way a fave quote)
“when one is comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities opens up.”
This little self widens my eyes just like Rick Ricardo in "I Love Lucy."
Uncertainty is scary. It’s supposed to be scary. Survival is at stake.
Did I mean steak?
I’m entitled to have my version of steak (vegan steak, granola steak, real steak) on the table whenever cravings stop by to visit.
2. Don’t fight biology 🧠 🥴
Science is very clear: there is no point to duel with nature.
Biology always win.
I lost many arguments over hidden childhood beliefs, hormones level, neuron paths, hot flashes, lack of or overdose of insulin.Yes, in those instances my opinions how things should be or not, made no sense.
Yet, I admit this lack of will power will prevail unless I befriend the beast: in this case my mind.
3. Good habits are possible
