In that moment you decide to take a drink do you feel an overwhelming feeling of relief? Are you off the hook from making responsible decisions? Are you giving up the wheel and ready to let the automatic pilot take the seat? That feeling is normal because we are making over 60,000 decisions everyday. We get tired, right? We do this for a mere reprieve of a few hours of our life. We don't want to think about the consequences that lay before us on the other side of "right now". We have the Nature/God given human brain that makes decisions for us. Thankfully, we can override that thought patterning. We can delay gratification and win the battle between the primal brain that is on the hunt for pleasure and fulfilling desire. Thank you, human brain for all that you have done for us. We wouldn't have cell phones, T.V.'s, cars, homes, businesses, etc. with you! You serve us well with all of your wisdom. Put that desire seeking brain in the trunk of the car and don't let it out until it knows its place. You want a life full of productivity, good health, deep and meaningful relationships. If you keep letting the desire win in the moment you'll never be long term satisfied. I love this quote, "Standing knee deep in a river, dying of thirst". When you have a drink of water when you are thirsty you are satisfied. You don't need five or six glasses. We seek satisfaction from a substance that will never satisfy. Delay the gratification in the now moment to reap the benefits of the person you know you are meant to be.
