Normally I am pretty focused in the grocery store. Today was a struggle. A constant battle of good vs. evil. Do you ever have days like this? Things I am normally pretty good at blocking out captivated my attention. It was almost as if they were a magnet slowly but surely drawing me in.
Thankfully, I spent the morning prepping info for my clients and some of the things I prepared came back to my remembrance. After the cashier rung me up, I breathed a sigh of relief...I thought I was safe...until I saw the GirlScouts table. Sigh. Thin Mints are kryptonite to me. I felt myself weakening.
In the space of a few seconds, I went back and forth in my mind. I almost caved. In fact, if it wasn't for a clerk asked if needed help, I probably would have.
I say all of this to say that I struggle too. And, the truth is I don't always win. But here's what I've learned: Each time I resist temptation I grow stronger. The same it is with you. Keep fighting!
