Are you an Emotional Eater?

Next Time when you want to Drown your Sorrows in Chocolate, read this first …

“If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep, you are richer than 80% of the world.

If you have money in the bank, a few dollars in your pocket and spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 5% of the world’s wealthy.

Sunset, National Park by Sandy Bröcking / Think Smart and Lose WeightIf you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the 2 million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation you are better of than 1 billion people in the world.

If you attend church or can practice your faith without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are more blessed than 3.5 billion people in the world.

If your parents are still alive and still married you are very rare, even in North America.

If you can hold your head high with a smile on your face and be truly thankful you are blessed because the vast majority can, but most choose to not do it.

If you can hold someone’s hand, hug them, kiss them, or even touch their shoulder, you are blessed because you offer a healing touch.

If you can read this message then you have just received a double blessing that someone was thinking of you and further more you are more fortunate than over 1 billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Have an amazing day, breathe deeply, smile, love and be thankful for all that you have.”

This was on a pamphlet from a restaurant called Mother Webb’s Steak House, located in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.

I found it on one of my favorite blogs: Minimalist Living

Take care of yourself and your body
