I managed to stay out of sweets and carbs for a whole day. Yes, this might be the day of starting a diet ( towards getting lighter) and keeping it until my body says, "thank you, dear ".
i went to bed happy and satisfied with the achievement.
Then came the dream . i was eating a yeast chocolate cake. It was DELICIOUS. While eating it i knew that i was not supposed to eat it... There was the familiar hidden guilt lurking with its hissing voice, "don't ! don't".. i did not listen. i ate until i was satisfied. And then came the haunting thought "i shouldn't have" "why did i" ... i woke up while it was still night, with droplets of self betrayal, only to realise it was a dream! i had the scrumptious aftertaste of the cake without eating it !! i found my new diet! My dream diet !
How to maintain our sanity in our busy -overwhelming world. We still have our inner resources to claim and create our own sanctuary whenever needed.
