Horrible Habits

EVERYDAY CHRISTIAN

I am surely speaking to an orderly crowd with no bad habits showing in any way. Unfortunately, you are reading a writer who has quite a few she is still trying to overcome.

Our bad habits are travel agents for guilt as we struggle with them and our failure to overcome them. The trouble is that we love our bad habits, don’t we?

Ice cream is one of my weaknesses. I like it way too much, way too much for comfort, weight loss, and common sense. I fail to control that bad ice cream habit when I purposely drive by my favorite store that sells my favorite flavor (with chocolate sauce on top!)

I could take another street to my destination but somehow I enjoy the torment of driving past (or into) what torments me.

I say enough is enough. What can we do today to help ourselves overcome the thing that we hate and yet that we continue to do?
