So this Monday, I was having a very bad craving for doughnuts and some muffins. So I did something that really surprised me. I had an 11 am appointment that I was early for. I got out really early. While I was driving down the highway, I started to think about why I was craving those foods. My life coach had said that when you crave soft foods that you’re really craving comfort. While I was thinking about my feelings, I realized that I missed my family and friends. The last time I saw my family was 2 days before Christmas. I saw my friends about a month and a half ago. On the spur of the moment decision, I decided to go to the park. I had only been there once before, but I made it there without my GPS. I didn’t have my journal but I had some paper and I just started to write in my journal sitting on a bench right next to the lake. I saw some geese, ducks, and a quail. It felt like I was comforting myself but I wasn’t medicating myself with food. I was with God and nature. It was a very healing experience. I’ve discovered that I love being out in nature. It makes me feel closer to God. Being around water also makes me feel very calm. I was born in July so I’m a cancer, which is a water sign. God speaks to us in many different ways. Even seeing those animals has a meaning. My spirit animal is the killer whale.
