Ok it happens, you didn’t mean for it to happen, but there it was admist your planned out day of meals a tempting sweet morsel. An item that you hadn’t had in such a long time, which only makes it look that much more delectable. Before you can think about what you are doing you have already swallowed one and possibly many more of its friends.
It happens, you work with many people and someone is bound to bring in treats and leave them sitting out in the break room, or at their desk, which is right in eye-sight of yours.
In life we get many temptations, sometimes we may act upon it, sometimes we are strong enough to resist and walk away. If you are able to walk away without accepting defeat, then pat yourself on the back, Great Job!!! For those that were beaten, don’t let it destroy you. It was a mistake, and you know why we make mistakes? To learn, to build strength so that next time we are stronger and can resist the temptation. Don’t let one mistake make you feel like a failure and quit what you have been fighting so hard for. Definitely don’t throw away your day after just one mishap. You can still stay on track for the rest of the day, why add more damage by destroying your whole day that stemmed from only one moment of weakness?
My favorite saying is: Yes, Tomorrow is a new day, however, Today is not over either, so why wait.
What is your favorite saying that helps to keep you focus to get back on track and not destroy yourself more?
