Follow up to Saying “No” to Yourself

So how has it been going saying “No!” to yourself?

After my story about Turkey Hill Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream, I had one person buy my two containers of it!  Come on, people!  I’m trying to say “No!” to myself too.  I guess you felt the need to help me grow some self-control.

I also heard that the lines at Costco were crazy long on Sunday.  So that must be the time and place to go if you want to practice patience.  Maybe you’ll be able to get some of their awesome samples too!  But Costco is also a test in self-control.  Where else can you get a gallon of ketchup that cheap?

Want to continue the discussion?  What does it mean to grow self-control and patience in your life?

  1. Self-control … ha ha. Yeah. Today, it meant being patient with a preschooler who is missing his sister. Saying “no” to my desire to curl up in a corner and read a book when he wanted to play or help. I wish I could say I did it well. Sigh. Tomorrow is another day.
