I Must Love Me Too

If you have neglected yourself,
make a sincere apology to thee.
Gather the "love-me-not-petals" of your life
and start counting "I-must-love-me-too".
In no time at all you have
a beautiful flower blossom within you. ~ Dodinsky Writings

Dealing With Food Pushers

Here is the line that I rehearse before I go out to a holiday event:

"No thanks, but I'd love a cup of tea" -- that's for declining

"No thanks, but I'd love a glass of mineral water with lemon" --
that's for declining everything else.

I find that as long as people can give you something (in my case, a
glass of sparkling water or a cup of tea, they're quite satisfied. But I
DO have to practice those lines.
