I ventured down to the vending machine yesterday afternoon to see if I could find a cure for my afternoon slump. I had a big whopping dollar bill in my pocket and an uneaten cucumber in my lunch bag. I swaggered up to the machine, intending to buy myself a Snickers bar. When the reality of giving away my dollar in exchange for a quick sugar fix, remorse, regret and likely added poundage to my already overweight vessel, I left the dollar in my pocket and ate the cucumber instead. Some days, a dollar is just too much for a candy bar.
TAKE AWAY: One dollar is too much to pay for regret.
If I could resist that candy bar yesterday, I can do it again today, right?
