Gillian thank you for posting this just now.
I’m dealing with some uncertainty at work and some new growth in my relationship. Both are a bit scary to me in different ways.
Suddenly I wanted to take extra food at my evening meal. Then I read your post and remembered that turning to food NEVER helps, always makes things worse, cannot relieve my fear. And also, of course desire for food is coming now, because I’ve practiced that over and over again.
I’m choosing to allow the desire, allow the uncertainty, and I’ll be so glad I did. And then I’ll have that to draw on next time I’m facing fear/uncertainty in life.
