“Why are you reading so much?”
Homeboy asked me
Trying to practice what I preach
I’m trying not to eat so much
I enjoy reading
Almost as much as I enjoy eating
I’m not hungry but want to treat myself
So instead of eating I’m reading
“How is it going so far?”
Well, It wasn’t easy at first… but I’m really enjoying it.
Still like eating but I also have alternatives.
Same thing in conversations with my clients … aka patients
What’s the next best thing?
You know… that thing you can do to reward yourself after a long day or as part of your self care
One that is independent of food or drinks
I’m practicing … so I can relate better with my clients!
Because it’s easier said and done when practiced.
