Day 8 – 30 Days of Discipline

When’s the last time you ate sugar? Like straight up white sugar? I can’t even remember the last time I had sugar….until tonight. I put some on my Corn Flakes. Not a lot, 1/4 teaspoon at the most. I did it because that’s the way my dad always ate his Corn Flakes….which he ate every single morning that I can remember.

WOW….is it sweet! Even that little bit was so sweet. And it tasted soooooo damn good. Maybe it was the memory of my dad that made it so good. I enjoyed every bite of that cereal and sugar.

I expect it will be years until I have white sugar again. But tonight, I had no regret for enjoying it. It helped me realize how much discipline I have already learned in my life. To not be able to recall how long it has been since I have eaten something I consider “unclean and unhealthy” makes me proud of all I have accomplished.

I wonder if I would have ever been able to stop my dad from putting white sugar on his Corn Flakes?
