Shades of Grey: Resolutions

Some situations are viewed in black and white; right and wrong. Yet, many people think situations also have a grey area where solutions are not so easily discerned. This is not just about the choices people make, but the thought process they go through to arrive at their decisions.

What Do You Think? Submitted for Your Consideration and Conversation

You’re starting off your new year right. You resolved to get in better shape and start taking walks, with a plan to eventually start jogging. You also stop buying junk food at the store.

Initially, your kids and spouse are very supportive. After a couple of weekends go by, your spouse comes home with a movie for you all to watch, plain popcorn for you, and candy for the rest of them.

Halfway through the movie you switch from popcorn to the candy. You feel guilty but eat it anyway. Your family doesn’t say a word or tease you about your “resolution.”

Do you think that after your slip, you could return to eating healthy and avoiding junk? Could you stop feeling guilty and focus on future meals? Or would you be hard on yourself?
