I did a thing.

A big thing.

A hard thing.

A brave thing.

I threw away some M&M’s.  Yes I did!

You see, I love M&M’s.  I love most anything chocolate.  But I’ve been feeling this pull to eat less.  I desperately want to lose weight before a big trip in the fall and these M&M’s aren’t helping my cause.

So I decided it was a goodwill symbolic act to actually throw them away.  So I said goodbye not only to the M&M’s but to the hold they have on me.  To this temptation the devil uses to control me.

I”m not sure how long it will last but it’s a start.  And I said it out loud, to the devil, that he no longer controls me.  How about you?

What is holding you hostage?

What do you need to let go of?

Do the hard thing!  You’ll be glad you did.

Because life’s too short to be controlled by little, oval, big-eyed, talking pieces of chocolate.   🙂
