What we are here for

Diets. There are a bunch of them out there. They make many claims. Saying you will have a better life if you are thinner. Making you feel uncomfortable with the way you look now, and question what you should look like. Why are we so consumed with dieting, and forcing our bodies to compete with unrealistic images that we see on television or in advertising?

The one thing I love most about this wonderful that we are not competing with those unrealistic expectations of body image. Instead we dig deep into our hearts to uncover what is truly there. Creating, writing, photographing...all of these things are building our spiritual center and healing our hearts.

No one here is concerned with how much you weigh, what you look like, if you have the latest fashion trends or hot new car. Rather, we are concerned with what your heart is saying. We are concerned with connecting with other people whose hearts are singing the same tune and being understanding, listening, and supporting those who are struggling with a matter of the heart. We are not here to judge. We are here for support. we are here to help one another, guide one another, and make each other not feel so alone in a world that is so large and intimidating at times.

This is a sacred community of the heart.

I saw your comment on Darlene's blog and came by to say Hi.
You have a very lovely post. I'll stop by again.

Some say I'm lucky since I'm genetically thin and have never had to diet...but I still need to WATCH my diet...which I'm not very good at. That said, I'm not a big fan of denial...I think if we're pleasuring ourselves with healthy food and enjoying it, then that's really all that matters. And, yes, one of the truly beautiful things about the blogosphere is the lack of judgment.
