Those little chocolate eggs are addicting, aren’t they?
I could easily be the main character in this comic strip as Easter candy is a personal weakness of mine. That’s a big part of why I’ve never given up chocolate for Lent (as least not successfully). Why set myself up to fail?
If there’s anything serious to take away from this strip, that’d be it. How often do we attempt to achieve some form of self-improvement (spiritual or otherwise) only to fail by essentially “shooting ourselves in the foot?” Yes, as the saying goes, we are many times our own worst enemies. Willpower and a desire to succeed only go so far if we continuously subject ourselves to temptation and opportunities to fail.
In short, avoid the candy aisle if you gave up sweets for Lent.
Thanks for looking, and stay strong- Easter’s coming soon!
