Nourishment goes far beyond food.
Food is just one way that we nourish ourselves & those we love. What else in you needs to be nourished? Is there something you need even more than an unzip-your-pants dinner?
Many of us are starving for connection- to others, to ourselves, to something greater. We’re starving for love; starving for meaning & purpose. We’re hungry for time, for peace, for a break. We dream of freedom. We ache for something more.
We long to be valued & seen & heard by others, but what we really need is to love & to listen to ourselves. To learn to fill our own cup.
So often we escape into food, alcohol, work, being busy. Even “good” things like relationships, exercise, meditation or preparing a magical holiday.
We strive for unattainable perfection. We’re ashamed of our dissatisfaction; ashamed for wanting more. We shift the focus outside of ourselves because we’re afraid to face our own discord. We feel trapped. We can’t escape our own wanting…
It’s exhausting. I know. I’ve been there.
When the hunger isn’t physical, no amount of brie & bacon & cookies can fill the emptiness. No amount of Pinot Noir can numb the longing for something deeper…
Nourishing yourself on a deeper level is the key & only you can give yourself what you really need. Nourishment is an act of self-love & self-respect. We have to be honest with our selves about what we really need & want, & allow ourselves to receive or create it.
You ARE important. You deserve to be nourished. You deserve to feel good.
You don’t have to choose between being true to yourself & your responsibility to others. Prioritizing your own health & wellbeing, being your fullest self, positively impacts everything & everyone you value.
As you revel in gratitude & the abundance of wonderful food this Tday, take a few moments to soak up more than the mashed potatoes & pie. Take a few moments to nourish your soul as well as your body… whatever that means for you. .
The Heceta Head Lighthouse was built in 1894 and is the strongest light on the Oregon Coast. Sitting mid-way up a 205 foot headland, the 56 foot tall lighthouse casts a beam visible for 21 nautical miles (39 km; 24 mi). The Fresnel lens, invented by French physicist Augustin Fresnel, used in this lighthouse is the largest lens of it's kind manufactured in England (as most we're made in France) here in the US today.
The lighthouse was originally plain brick but was later stuccoed for protection against the elements.
Since 1963 the lighthouse has been automated.
“Straight roads do not make skillful drivers.” - P. Coelho 〰️ It’s too true how you do not fully appreciate a place when you live there. We got so wrapped up in the grind of SF that we often didn’t appreciate being surrounded by an incredible landscape, filled with redwoods, mountains and living next the the ocean. What I miss the most is what a dog lovers paradise it is in the north bay- where it is just a normal day to bring your fur babies with you shopping and out to eat. I’m sure Darty does too 😆
The historic village of Oysterville is lovingly maintained. Visit it on the north end of the Long Beach Peninsula where you will also find sweeping views of the Willapa Bay. And perhaps a bit of peace...
Новости прошлой недели. В Буэнос-Айресе пара, вооружившись 5ю бомбами, отправилась на кладбище Реколетта. К слову, кладбище красоты неземной. И пошли убивать одного мужчину. Мужчину, который умер в 1909 году. Вопрос: если он уже был мертв, какого ляда они туда поперлись? У меня две гипотезы: они думали, что живут в 1909 или их преследовал призрак этого мужика, поэтому они решили разнести мавзолей.
Кароче, горе-подрывники подорвали только себя. Девочка лишилась 3 пальцев, мальчика тоже задело. Мертвый мужик из 1909 все такой же мертвый 😂😂😂
Что произошло? Хрен его знает.
Если это были бы русские, я бы предположила, что они просто бухнули.
