I admit it, I ate what I shouldn't have yesterday. Why? Because it was in the house. I know I never should have let it get that far. As a matter of fact, it should have never been put in the shopping cart. But I put it there because I choose to do it.
It seems that after I do something like that, I spend the next 24 hours chastising myself and asking myself why I did it. I almost always come up with the same answer to the "why and itt is because "I chose to do so."
If I think about it, no matter what I eat, (healthy item or not), it always starts with a choice. For instance, the other day when I was at the mall, I entered the candy store. I stood there looking at all the so-called "goodies" for quite sometime. It was only when the clerk finally spoke up and asked me if she could help me find something that I realized I was having a dialogue going on in my head: " I want this" 'Oh, this looks good." "I wonder how many additives are in this." "Cancer Food", "But, I am craving this and if I don't buy it now, I'll regret it later." "I don't need this." "This is not good for me."
Thankfully, that clerk's voice snapped me out of it and I told her I was just looking and walked out the store without buying anything. So, then, why is when I was a the other store I put that junk in my cart? The answer is simple, I choose to do it.
Choices, every day, every moment I make a choice to do or not to do something. Today is a new day. A day for new choices.
