Those snicker commercials…”you’re not you when you’re hungry”…excellent. I use that line often. “You need a snickers.”
Recently I discovered I hadn’t been me. And I didn’t even realize it.
Sometimes, for various reasons, we can let life get us away from what makes us us. Or what keeps us healthy, alert, moving forward.
For example, reading is something I NEED. Earlier this year I realized that I hadn’t been doing it at the level at which I need. In a sense, I was starving myself. When I realized it, the first thing I did was ask the why question. Answered that, then determined to get back to doing what I need. And I feel more like me. Hunger satisfied.
That’s one of a few things I need to be me. There are certainly universal things we all need. But there are needs/things that are unique to us individually. Do you know your things that make you you? God designed you to need those things. How do you make sure you get them? You’re more you when you have them.
Self-starvation is just crazy. Know your needs. Be aggressive in getting them so you can be you.
