I am sure everyone can relate to a day when everything goes wrong. Yesterday was that day for me. First I turn on the oven and it starts on fire! (Luckily the fire was contained to the inside of the oven). Then I turn on the furnace and it only kicks out cold air! Then I book a flight online and the price of the ticket has gone up $100! I am so frustrated at this point that I turn to a candy bar - does this make any sense? But yes that was my reaction. I do not know if anyone else does this but I am obviously an emotional eater. When everything goes wrong I think a candy bar will fix it! Obviously it didn't and then I felt guilty for having the candy. But today is a new day and I am off to a better start. Here's the thing- I am sure that there will be problems to face today - but the way to solve those problems is with solutions not a candy bar! Somehow in my mind the two are related - but they are not. So with this new awareness of myself I will face this day with real solutions.
