This post isn’t going to be about New Year’s Resolution #1 (losing weight), not really. Bear with me.
You see, every year around this time, our pants fit a little snugger, our trashcans fill a little higher, and our credit card bills roll in. Ugh. I know–I feel it, too. And I don’t like it. But the thing is: it’s universal. And I have a bit of a theory to share that has to do with waste:
The more you buy = more trash. More trash = bigger credit card bill.
Bigger credit card bill = self-indulgence to soften the edges of the ghastly bill (which = softer flesh). And so on and so forth….
Get me so far?
I know when I am eating right and exercerzing regularly my pants fit better. I have less time and interest in shopping, too (and less likely to grab take-out on my way home from a shop-till-you-drop mega-spree thus increasing the waist line and garbage barrel, consequently the credit card bill). So, there just may be more to the adage, “It’s time to tighten our belts.”
And that is what is in my brain today, Thursday January 5th 2012.
