The battle to do what’s right versus the desire to follow your desires affects many people in their life; the people who succumb to their desires will face accusations from the general public of, “how could they do that, what kind of person are they?” That’s been the way for as long as people talked about other people and that’s not going to change in near future.
The people who have the desires but fail to act for whatever reason will always wonder if they should have gone down that path. The “what if,” story will be with them forever.
The lucky people are the people who smile at their temptations because they realise they are using their imagination to entertain them while they create a solution for another problem in their lives, and they know smiling is always good for them in troubling times.
“Lead me not into temptation; oh who am I kidding, I know a shortcut.” ~ Smiling forever.
