Want vs. Need
I was picking up some food for the house when I saw them.
4 large chocolate cup cakes. Together, cover with lots of frosting. My mouth watered. It is one of my favorite things to eat.
Normally for one the price is $2.99. But today it was $4.00 for all four.
I have been very good on my eating. Staying away from sugars. I been working out at the gym 4 times a week. Starting to lose a little weight.
I told myself, it really for the boys. They would like these delicious cupcakes. And I would make sure the twins wouldn't eat all that sugar. You know it isn't good for them. A little bit for me won't be bad.
I stood there looking at them. Finding all types of reasons to get them. It has been a rough week, it been cold (I need the sugar to stay warm.) I been good, I deserve it.
But when I got down to it, I didn't need it, I only wanted it.
So I put it down and went on shopping.
