Light and easy days, free of depressive eating, bingeing and procrastination
Gone are the days of sitting depressed in my flat, unable to function when all I could do was sit and eat, frozen with fear.

I am amazed how some days seem so light and easy. Then that energy disappears and the next moment or 24 hours seem dark and heavy. I’m pleased to report that today was light and easy. Since earlier in the week, I put off writing an email, assessing paperwork, updating documents, finding suitable accommodation for a visiting friend and changing the bed linen! But today, I completed all those tasks with a sense of joy, lightness and ease. I paused throughout each activity and thanked whatever power there is in the universe for that energy and the ease of getting through the tasks effortlessly. The motto, “less effort, maximum benefit” that I heard recently sounded in my heart.

This morning helped me realise the old adage, “this too shall pass!” and the complete practical sense of other slogans I’ve learned in the programme. Another example is, “don’t take yourself too seriously!” I’m appreciating how everything ebbs and flows; one’s energy, the moonlight, the tide on the beach rise and fall, like the sun.

I’m in awe of how it’s possible for a hopeless addict, like me, to not eat addictively - even when some days I feel overwhelmed with chores, people and things, or a feeling of darkness surfaces (and it really is just a feeling). Thankfully, everything passes and, as I mature in sobriety, I really know with all my heart how to keep going.
