I have a weakness for chocolate-coated almonds, which is to say - I like them.
Considering that, I suppose I have a weakness for sweet potato, salmon and broccoli, and weightlifting too. I guess the difference is that I don’t think of these things as being bad.
When we want to do something nice for ourselves, why do we think of being indulgent? Pandering to our ego? Is that treating ourselves with kindness? It may be, but it’s not all there is.
What about doing something that nourishes your true self - whatever that is?
I like being indulgent, I think it’s great! I enjoy it very much, which is precious. It’s much better than indulging and only feeling guilty - what’s the point of that? But being indulgent is not all I think of when I want to be nice to myself, when I’m in need of comfort.
There are reasons we have cravings; they’re not all bad and I don’t think they should be ignored.
Be aware. What do you truly, genuinely need, without preconception?
That’s key. Take away the judgment – both the positive and negative. What do you need, for you?
