With Christmas come and gone it tis the season to start seeing peoples' New Year's resolutions posted here, there, and everywhere, one of the most popular being giving up all things sugary and fatty and hitting the gym.
Those who have followed me for quite awhile know that I'm not a big fan of making resolutions when the new year looms near; I feel if you're going to set a goal for yourself why not do it ANY day of the year instead of waiting until the end of the year for a 'new start.'
That being said however, I'm on a reading kick lately and I recently read something in a young adult book called Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter (second book in the series) that made me really stop and think. The characters were at Thanksgiving dinner with all sorts of traditional Thanksgiving foods spread about. Along with a single bowl of spaghetti.
"You did all of this?" I asked.
"Everything but the spaghetti."
"Which you have because...."
"Of my rules. I only eat what I'm craving and I was craving my dad's spaghetti."
