Car repair = Ice cream

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Today my car broke down on the freeway. It took the tow company 1 1/2 hours to pick up my vehicle. They had told me it would be awhile because they were quite busy. I was sitting in the vehicle with a bag of miniature candy bars.

For 1 1/2 hours I listed the reasons I was Blessed, the reasons I love my family & friends, my cell phone, my dog..etc. I listed listed listed listed so I would not eat that bag of candy bars. At last, Chad from Midwest towing (who was wonderful) picked me up and brought me, Zing and my Mini Cooper back to Fargo.

I left the bag of candy bars with Jason at South Pointe Service Center. When I finally got home I treated myself to a mini-Dove ice cream. It was fabulous and just enough to make me happy.

    Congratulations on a huge victory. That is an awesome exercise in self control and discipline, especially in that situation. You could have mindlessly nibbled away at a bag of mini candy bars while you were waiting out of sheer boredom, but you actively chose other things to do. And, you still had a little ice cream treat later so you didn't feel totally deprived. That's got to make you feel so powerful and good about yourself.
