We choose what we focus on. If we are obsessed by food and eating or if we are enjoying food as a small but present part of a full life.
What if your life feels like a struggle? Weighing yourself down in your body with problems to match the weight in your mind will not help. By lightening the load on your body you can put the focus where it belongs in making progress on the things that matter. No ones life perfect, happy people are those seeing improvement and that is the real secret, the miracle of chanukah. Its not the victory its the oil, Its the growth and miracle that happens when consistency and honesty and truth come into the light.
