This one is a doozy.
I mean… the stuff is ev.er.y.where.
In your kids bags. In the basket leftover from your handouts for last night. In the ziploc bag your grandparents saved for your kids. In the 75% off cupcakes at the grocery.
And guess what?
I’m not phased by it! Finalllllllllly! Because I’ve finally given in and covenanted with God to not eat sugar again for the rest of my life!
And I’m gonna be honest with ya right now. I’d be lying if I said that there wasn’t a little bitty part of me that wasn’t a little sad about giving it up forever. It’s the same part of me that says “You’re going to miss out… you’re going to miss out on Halloween. and Thanksgiving. and Christmas. and Valentines. and Easter. and your birthday. You’re going to miss out and you’re going to be sad and depressed and different and alone and and and…”
And then Covenant-Me says to Sugar-Eating-Me, “NO. You. Shut. Your. Mouth. Because I was sad and depressed and different and alone when I WAS having candy and cakes and ice creams all those times. I’m not going to let you lie to me anymore. I’m not missing out.
Plus, look at this. I celebrated a NO CANDY Halloween last night and had a BLAST!”
Then I look at the candy and Covenant-Me is all like “Pish. Who needs you?”
And I walk away.
And eat… a clementine or something, like, way awesomer than a Snickers.
