I Can Resist Anything.
I gave in to temptation. How easy it is to do that to just give in, much easier to give in that to resist.
There was a cartoon of a farmer feeding his pigs. As he filled the trough with food one hog said to the other, “I wonder why he is so good to us.” Temptation is a bit like that. It looks exciting to begin with but in the end it only leads to misery.
A young lad was told by his mother to come straight home from school and not to stop at the football pitch on the way home. He said that he would but he put his goalkeeping gloves in his schoolbag just in case he was tempted.
I have done a great deal of resisting temptation this last month or two in my effort to get back to my proper weight for my height. There were times when it was not easy. Like the times when I was about to have a cup of coffee and saw the biscuit tin and thought how nice a chocolate biscuit would be with the coffee.
Enough of that: back to my marvellous experience. No, it was not the village, even though it was lovely to go back down memory lane. It was when we visited the outdoor retail store and I tried on a pair of walking trousers. What a joy it was to be rewarded all my resistance to discover I was able to once again purchase a pair with a 30” waistband.
Joy comes from the simple things of life but it often also comes from the rewards of resisting temptation.
Sorry that this blog is so short but today I have a three and a half hour drive to take my caravan up north for my son. I will set it up then make the journey home so I best not give into the temptation to sit here to long.
Have a great day.
