How often do you really listen to your body? Do you ignore it when it tells you not to get in that elevator, stop eating, or take a rest? Personally, I ignore mine often. I believe if I listened to it I would be much better off, but I’m stubborn. No one is going to tell me what to do…even me.

I’ve been in a place (physical and emotional) I thought I wanted to be. A place I thought I was supposed to be. And I keep getting sick. I haven’t been able to enjoy it like I planned. My body figured out before me that I don’t want to be here. I’m not supposed to be here. When I was sick and feverish I just wanted to be comfortable. And I realized it wasn’t going to happen here. I belong somewhere else. A place where I am surprisingly comfortable.

My body also shows how I’m feeling. I can eat perfectly and workout like crazy, but not lose an ounce if I’m depressed. I get happy and the numbers on the scale drop no matter what. My body and mind tend to follow each other’s lead.

Now if only they will lead me home.

    I used to try listening to my body…but it turns out my body only speaks German which I can’t really follow. If Bable Fish is any guide, it seems my body just wants to invade Poland…or possibly Polish girls…and French girls. I keep trying to warn it about the perils of invading Russia, but I don’t think my body is listening. I’m worried about frostbite.

So, whaddya think?
