Short Thought 215 (distractions & temptations)

It isn’t that I don’t get distracted by unhealthy/tempting things so much that I now recognize them when they show up and CHANGE COURSE – redirect myself – sooner than I used to. I see trouble for what it is in whatever shape it arrives: person, substance, or situation. It is both a disappointment and a kind of relief to truly understand that nothing outside of myself holds the answers or the solutions.

    Reading this just after baking a batch of Nutella brownies, I think I sometimes invite trouble… But, to be fair, I’m taking them to work, and it means one less jar of Nutella at home for me 😉
    On a more serious note, it is definitely a difficult thing to both see trouble/temptation coming and also steer away from it. Takes a lot of discipline, no doubt, but sounds like you’re very self-motivated

      You are right about being self-motivated. I think I finally wore myself out dealing with the consequences of succumbing to distractions and temptations. And there are always consequences of one stripe or another. And yes, I’ll have some of those brownies, thank you!
