We are not brains. We are people with bodies. The brain, by itself, is somewhat limited. It can't breathe. It can't eat. It can't see or hear. It can't walk or talk, smile or kiss, laugh or cry, have sex or raise children. There are all kinds of things that the brain can't do, but you can do, because you are not a brain.
I've decided, in the deluded spirit of making resolutions in the new year, to try and change an aspect of my lifestyle; I'm going to dip my toe in the water of an attempt to be kind to myself. My problem is I can't tell when I'm being nice to myself and when am I just being a lazy pig, so I never stop with the self-flagellation to keep going. If I thought about what's the greatest thing I could do for myself, I'd tell you it was 'to never have to get out of bed'. I'm my happiest when I have a virus and have an excuse to lie there without the nagging mother in my brain screaming, "Get your ass up and out".
