The Love Buffet

images-1I am not a fan of buffets, even the most lavish.  They are a reminder of when I was one hundred pounds heavier.  Piling food on for more than one trip was my norm.  I did not have the understanding or self-love to scan the buffet and make choices that were healthy for me. Because I still have the overweight brain, food serves as my way to explain what’s in my heart.

I woke this morning thinking about a lavish buffet and its correlation to dating, love, long-term relationships and life in general.  There are so many choices.  The buffet can be overwhelming.  Why did I come to the buffet?  Am I hungry and trying to fill a void? Do I desire the dish that will sustain me?  Do I want something sweet to just curb a craving, or comfort food that will stick to my ribs and feed my soul?

Unknown-1The buffet can be a dangerous place.  We can overindulge.  This results in feeling physically and emotionally sick.  Choosing dessert after dessert will deliver a roller coaster of blood sugar highs and lows. Only eating salad will leave you craving something more.

Like all the entrees, sides and desserts on a buffet, love is about making a choice.  We need the initial aromas from the buffet to spark a desire, just as the chemistry when we meet someone of interest.  Soon, we get used to the aroma and it does not entice us to partake in the buffet.  The honeymoon is over.  It’s time to decide if we want to stay with what we have chosen to eat, get something new or leave the buffet.

Now it is work.  Getting a clean plate every trip and heading to the same spot on the buffet becomes a burden.  We know this is the best choice offered.  It is nutritious, will sustain us, enhances our health, and it is the most delicious of all the choices.  Yet, we struggle.

UnknownCircumstances surrounding the buffet can be a distraction.  These will keep you from coming back to the same spot.  Other people crowd your way.  You can no longer see your targeted dish.  The bus boy stops his cart in front of you, and you can’t get there.  Is it worth it?  Is the best on the buffet worth fighting through the crowd and the circumstances?  It is your choice as the consumer to decide.

We can always leave the buffet for a while.  Eventually we all get hungry, and we come back.  What will we choose then?  Remember, love is a choice.  It is an act of the will that with proper time and nutrition is what will sustain you through life’s ups and downs.  Only love can bring pure happiness. Take a risk.  Be vulnerable.  Share your heart, and love always! Know I love you all!

Tell me what’s going on in your life.  I want to hear from you.

Wishing you love balance and peace.

Amore & Baci,

Just Steph

Ease On Down the Road

IMG_7065 2

The journey toward the best version of ourselves can be rough.  Life happens, right?  From our early childhood right through life there is resistance.  The challenges of learning, growing and accepting ourselves can be daunting.  Throw in normal events, happy or otherwise, choices on how we face life must be made.

There are many roads we can take to cope with ourselves, the people around us and whatever else life has in store.  The one less traveled, the rocky road, will most like be the one that, in the end, will bring us peace and strength.  This is the path that many avoid.  It is on this road that we must look in the mirror.  It is here we need to be honest with ourselves and the people around us.  We must communicate on a deeper level revealing our hearts.  We face fears, sorrow and untrue beliefs about ourselves and our world.

Based on the cards dealt to me, the easy way has never been an option for me. My daily life is a constant reminder as well as my tired heart. I always wanted to find an easy way. I wanted to run. I wanted to hide. Facing my stuff head on is my norm. It’s how I roll, not by choice, but by design. Running away is not in my make up. I work at it.

FullSizeRender 18I want it to be different. I want to walk away because I am scared or untrusting. I want to hide. I want to pretend something or someone isn’t important. I want to go back to Boston where it is safe.  I can’t. I’m here facing my life the best I can. Trying to love until it hurts. I fall and I get up. I laugh and I cry. That’s life. And I don’t run. Where would I go anyway?

IMG_7026 2I believe all of life is a blessing.  I know instinctively when things are so bad, that I will be ok.  I just need to go through this.  I believe that, in the end, I will be the best version of myself.  You will too.

“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood.  And I, I took the road less traveled by and that has made all the difference.” The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

Tell me what’s going on in your life.  I want to hear from you.

Wishing you love, balance & peace.

Amore & Baci,
