Chain Reaction

I find that I link things together in my life. Donuts and coffee, donuts and Jesus, donuts and sunshine... the list goes on. My kryptonite used to be cake, but donuts are easier. When I associate food with happiness, I gain weight. When I gain weight, I am no longer happy. When I associate fitness with happiness, I feel guilty that I am taking time away from my children and spending too much time on me.

I believe I need to spend less time worrying and more time praying. I could say a decade of the rosary before I finish a donut and a cup of coffee. I could pray while I workout. I could pray while I cook. I could cook foods that are sustaining versus fleeting. I could take a break from going out to eat. I could stop weighing myself.

Seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own. Matt 6: 33-34
