Rationalizing

On a recent road trip to California, I snacked so much as to have gained back that which I had worked so hard to lose. Five pounds. I rationalized the snacking as ok because we had agreed, for CoViD safety concerns, to avoid indoor restaurants.

Once safely home, it’s back to The Eat Diet.

I can rationalize just about anything, and I’ll bet I am not alone.

How many of us have rationalized our way down expensive or tiresome rabbit holes seeking yet another tiny improvement?

I have a box filled with green pens and a tape degausser as a reminder.

It takes clarity of purpose, courage, and resolve to quiet the rationalizer in us.
