Fuck your ego
Okay I get it, I sound bitter, but I’m about to set torch to all my self-help books and use the fiery aftermath to launch me out the window as I ride out on my rolled up yoga matt. I don’t know if you can relate: your car breaks down, you fight with your partner and a zit decides to give your face head. Life isn’t going as you planned, you begin to compare your apple self with the orange of another and begin to think that you don’t measure up. Screw quinoa this morning, you don’t have time for anything including yourself that you’ll just have to get a bagel and a coffee at the drive-thru. Which begs the question, when it feels like the universe is crashing down, how do you rise above it all?
Simple. Fuck your ego.
Figuratively speaking that is.
Now I’m not going to give you a bunch of let’s chant together and sing kumbaya. Instead I will tell you this: the whiny self-pity, depression and anger that drives you to eat like shit and put on our wine goggles to view the world differently is like giving up on the potential for growth and freedom. And one of the ways that I like to take it back is in my kitchen.
Now maybe you’re not a master of your kitchen domain. Maybe you see it as long hours, complication, dirty dishes, disorganization and sharp objects.
[Allow me to step in…]
This is where I take my anger, sadness, worry and obsession and cook it out and flip my bird to my ego and take my power back. However for many of my clients, they’re not kitchen-savvy, which is where I provide a plan during consultations, rock the mic at corporate gigs and why I’m developing my upcoming program, A Sexy Guide to Getting a Good Quickie”. I wanted people to save money, time and maybe even shed a couple pounds by getting quick, easy, healthy meals into them to feel sexier and more empowered than ever. All the details are coming soon with discounts for those signed up to my newsletter. So sign up, get the goods and maybe even win a monthly incentive – sweet!
In the meantime, the next time you wake up to your ego trying to sneak a morning poke, take less than 5 minutes to prepare my Lipstick on the Collar smoothie because I like to start my day off with dessert. Then take a breath, notice the thoughts that roll in, but remember you don’t have to listen to them: I suck, she’s prettier than me, smarter than me, I’ll never find someone, he might leave me because I’m not good enough, yada, yada, yada…
Because the thought you chose will be the catalyst to the emotion that ensues.
The emotion that ensues will be the spur to the nourishment or starvation you decide for yourself.
So today, what will you chose and will you have the courage to flip the bird to your ego?
