It’s Saturday, November 9th- over a week from Halloween 2013.
If during every other week at work you can gain the Corporate 15, the day after Halloween, you can gain the Corporate 20.
People bring their leftover candy and leave it to tempt you in order to overcome their lack of self control.
As of yesterday afternoon, most of the candy was gone. The Starbursts, Skittles, and Snickers had all been snatched up.
Key word: MOST.
There is still a sad bowl of candy sitting on the table in the kitchen. It contains countless jaw breakers and gobs of lollipops of a brand I’ve never heard of. It’s as if that candy was never touched.
When it comes to Halloween candy, you have two choices:
1)Buy brand name candy that everyone will love
2)Buy off brand candy that no one will eat
If you choose option 1, you will pay for those brand names and have 0 leftovers. If you choose option 2, your wallet will thank you, but at the end of the night, it will just be you and that bowl of candy. So did you really save any money? The candy you purchased will actually go to waste, as no one chose to eat it.
Often times, people will live their lives like option number 2. They cheat themselves…they fill up on cheap worldly highs, which in turn deprives themselves of true joy, then wonder why they’re empty inside.
So, don’t be tempted by that sour gumball surprise. Choose the real deal and choose joy.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
