What Feeds You?

It’s starting. The creeping feeling of holiday time, where everything speeds up, whipping up into a final frenzy. As if things weren’t going fast enough already.

During my meditation yesterday, I heard a voice loud and clear. A question, really. It asked “What feeds you?”

I stopped and listened. “What feeds you?” it asked me again.

The question pointed me toward the simple realized that I have been putting my energy toward too many things that deplete me and not enough things that feed me.

So, I decided to make a list. From now on, when faced with a decision I’m going to ask myself: Does this feed me? If the answer is no (it’s not absolutely necessary), I’m going to do my best to skip it.

What Feeds Me:

1. bodywork
2. sunshine
3. connecting with people
4. restorative yoga
5. sitting with my son after school while we have a snack

What Depletes Me:

1. guilt
2. big muffins
3. too much socializing without quiet time to balance it out
4. saying yes when I really want to say no
5. feeling overly responsible for people around me

We want to know: What feeds you?
