Most of us try to control our sugar cravings (and our lives.) We try to manage and manipulate so that life meets our expectations.
But life is messy and impermanent. How do you make peace with life as it is? How do we make peace with ourselves? And what does this have to do with sugar?
In this video, I describe my shift in moving from control and manage to care and flow – both with sugar and with my very life. Moving from control to care is how I healed some of the shame I felt about, “It’s all my fault.” It’s how I found deep peace with the most painful parts of my life – challenges with things like depression and anxiety.

This is such a noble goal, Karly! I love this idea of moving from control to care! This is definitely a challenge I want to work on. I'm so thrilled you're doing these videos! 🙂 Watching and listening to your beautiful words, I felt like I could really identify with your recollections of pain, anxiety, and depression. Thank you so much for pioneering the way . . . and then holding a light for all of us. 🙂
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I slip back into sugar addiction when I try to manage it.
When I can look at something and gently say it's not going to make me feel good in my body or about myself then I can say no without it being an internal or external battle.
Thanks for reminding me.
Perfect….exactly what i needed to hear right now.
Have been juice feasting for the past week and at day 9 today I was completely struggling with the craving for sweets and breads, and i could feel this deep void within me that I was trying to stop. Now you've reminded me not to struggle, not to get rid of it, not to 'endure' it…..but to dive deep inside, to feel it fully, to love it and know that everything is alright in this very moment. I'm asking my body what it's trying to tell me, without engaging my mind that simply wants to 'fix the problem'.
Thank you for being your wonderful you xox
You are so welcome, Harmony Rose! I feel so happy this was just what you needed.
I'm cheering you in….
In love and care,
I'm glad my words reassured you, and that this idea resonated with you, as well. None of us are alone!
In support and care, Karly
