I Need Some Sugar in My Bowl--I Ain't Fooling

If you have the sound on on your computer, you're hearing Nina Simone singing Little Sugar in My Bowl.

Right now this song is  metaphor for my life. I am just not getting fed enough from any angle. . .

I need some sugar in my bowl at work in terms of more recognition.
I need some sugar in my bowl at home with more loving kindness and just plain ole loving from Hubby.
I need some sugar in my bowl at the gym--more of those initial high feelings and more recognizable results.
I need some sugar in my bowl literally--just craving those darn sweets!
I need some sugar in my bowl in terms of self-care and self-love and knowing how to keep myself boosted and less needing the attention, feedback, and love from others.

I feel so funny; I feel so sad.

But I'm sure this too shall pass.


  1. Ah, this too shall pass. I've been telling myself that lately, too. I'm sorry you are feeling less than fully appreciated. I think we all look for ways to be less "needy", but sometimes you just need it. I hope it arrives for you from all corners of your life.

    But if it doesn't, they are just feelings and feelings aren't facts and they mostly will pass.

    Sending good thoughts your way.

  2. Amen, sugar...this too shall pass is right...winter gloom into spring sun...sun into energy
    superphotosynthesize me :)

    Peace ~ Rene

  3. Sandy;) we all need affirmation and encouragement. You're not alone needing a little sugar in your bowl this week. I have felt the same. But take heart, I pass you a whole bowl of sugar to the most persevering person I have known. (((Hugs))) and blessings Jo

  4. I hope you know that I'm always sending sugar your way!

    It was great talking to you the other day. Sorry I had to run off...

  5. In the south, grandmothers hold their arms out to grandchildren for hugs, saying "gimme some sugar!" Sometimes I think I need to just be hugged and held up totally, by the universe. No one person could do the job. Hope you're feeling better today. This too will pass. I send you a big beautiful naturally sweet virtual strawberry!
