Regardless of how weak or undisciplined you feel, the truth is, you can handle you! This is what maturity is all about—you handling you. You taking responsibility, not only for the food choices you make, but for your life. Children are immature; they aren’t ready to fully handle life. Adults who act like children are also unprepared to handle and take responsibility for life.
You, by becoming a mature, responsible adult, are preparing yourself to be effective and successful. And with responsibility comes satisfaction, solace, predictability, control, and freedom from the frictions of doubts, fears, and negative thoughts.
Starting today, before you decide what to eat or snack, ask yourself, am I choosing to eat like an adult or like a child? This simple distinction can go a long way in creating a mindful approach to your eating.
