Part of the Problem

This morning I was reading reflections by a favourite writer of mine. I know what she looks like and it has, occasionally, crossed my mind to envy her slim stature.

In the piece I read this morning she was talking about inexplicable, abberant behaviour and she compared it to,

“…hauling off and eating a whole pan of brownies when you would usually just eat an apple.”

Yes, she’s acknowledging that everyone has those moments.

But it occurred to me that ‘just eating an apple’ is never the default behaviour for me!

I might remind myself to eat an apple instead of a whole pan of brownies and then feel virtuous (and unsatisfied), but ‘just eating an apple’ is SOOOOooo not the norm.

This might be part of my problem. What do you think?
