I quickly got into the habit of buying for breakfast two croissant and one pain raisin, which is kind of like a cinnamon roll but more so. This was obviously too much; I was leaving the table feeling overstuffed and uncomfortable. But the croissant are so good that you can’t just stop at one, and the pain rasin are so good you can’t just walk off and leave them without buying one. And if you have them, you can’t not eat them, at least I can’t.
But yesterday, I came home with only the two croissant, not the pain rasin. How did I manage this? By focusing my mind on how wonderful the croissant were going to be, and thus distracting myself from the pain raisin.
So, appreciate what you have and don’t be focusing on what you don’t have.
Of course, I made up for it later in the day. Will need to work on that too
