Do you have temptation in your life?
I have a lot of temptation. What is my worst temptation? THE CANDY ROOM at work. Did I say “Candy ROOM”? Why yes, I did. People don’t believe me when I try to describe the candy room in my office. If you have a sweet tooth, I DARE you to try and resist this room.
Don’t have a sweet tooth? That’s okay. There’s a DRAWER of crunchy, salty things too!
Are you craving chocolate instead of candy or nuts? There’s a drawer for that too!
Not only that, I have to walk into the Candy Room about 12 times a day to use the label printer that happens to be in that room. So no, I can’t just avoid that room. I walk by temptation every day, all day. Most days I’m pretty good about resisting. Some days, I’m not so great…. 🙁
QUESTION: Do you have temptations? Do you resist them? How do you feel afterward?
OMG i’ve never seen a room like this before! How could you resist. They’ve covered all the bases!
Temptations that I have in my life are mainly things inside my own house, like the ice cream in the freezer….. I resist by just reminding myself that I don’t have to eat it all the time. It’ll still be there tomorrow or the next day and if it isn’t, I can buy more!
Thanks for visiting my blog! You make an excellent point. “I don’t have to eat it all the time.” I like that! 🙂 -Lisa
No kidding, huh? I knew those pics of the candy room would amaze people! 🙂 -Lisa
