I had an epiphany today as I contemplated the sugary halloween candy that I was consuming. When I consider eating sugar, I usually make the decision not to because I am *afraid* of the physical ramifications the next day. I picture myself not being able to walk or worse. I realized today that I am tired of making my decisions because of fear. I am tired of trying to make good choices only because I am scared of what will happen if I don't. I want to make my choices based on love instead. I would like to choose to eat healthy because I love my body and want to be as healthy as I can so that I can have more children and take care of my husband and the son I already have. What a difference that point of view is. I am tired of the media and even the alternative medical folks (and western too, for that matter) who use fear as their primary motivating force. It's time for me to change the intents of my heart and get my motivations in line with my priorities.
On that note, I found this clip interesting.
