Great quote. Thanks

It reminded me of the quote from Alcoholic Anonymous who choose not to have the next drink for just......(name the time.) "Just for the next five minutes I won't have ___________" (ice cream!)

Or, "Just for the next hour I won't have ___________." Fill in the blank with your temptation!
Or, "Just for this day I won't have ____________." Anyone can resist a temptation for a short time. We don't worry about the next minutes, hours, days, weeks, or months. Just for now, just for a while we can resist..... or go exercise.

For me, that came to me over time - when I was young, I had no patience with MY imperfections. We all get lots of chances to turn it around - so often we don't recognize them though.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Just got done watching Vanilla Sky on Netflix. The movie was so-so, but it did contain that great quote. And it's so true.

For instance, if you pig out on a crazy breakfast and you fell bad about it, it doesn't mean your whole day is shot. So many of us get in that mindset. But thinking in hours or even minutes, we realize we can take control again, and much sooner.
