Do you take risks in areas that are potentially painful or even harmful? Do you overeat, eat foods that aren’t nourishing for your body, push yourself too hard with exercise or work, drink more than you know is healthy, have sex for the wrong reasons? Did you even consider these to be risks? When you follow your passions, you fill yourself up with the things that make you come alive, make you feel whole. When you don’t, you need to feel alive & whole in other ways, like taking risks with food, sex, vices, overindulging, etc. to meet those needs. The next time you reach for that piece of candy you really don’t want, or that glass of wine that you know you don’t need, stop. Take a deep breath & really consider what you’re really desiring in this moment. Are there unmet needs or desires that are fueling your “need”?
