“Temptation will crack under the pressure of tempting me. I symbolize self control.”
Something that every broad-minded woman says holding her head high. The world can’t agree more. It is a true blessing that people can’t read our minds like Edward Cullen. If only they could, the true battle will be exposed.
Be it the urge to binge-eating or bite back with sarcasm at the work place, we control it so smoothly and talk as soft as satin. A deep breath, squaring the shoulder and a bright smile- temptation will run away with its tail between its legs. How heroic and nice it sounds?
Here is the villainy effort behind the screen. We see the chocolate dripping donut sprinkled with tidbits placed on the table. The brain and heart have the most heated conversation the UNO has ever seen.
Heart: Oh my god! Oh my god! I would trade my boyfriend for this donut.
Brain: Yeah right! Remember the weight loss goals we have. Forget it! Don’t think how it will taste. Don’t smell its aroma. Just don’t think how it will melt in your mouth. This is what we read. Come on, we can do this!
Heart: Duffer! Just by telling me what not to do, you made me think all those. Yummmmm! That appetizing aroma, the texture of silky chocolate between the fingers, the soft baked dough between the teeth… ooooh.. I want it! Now, now, now!!
Just when the fingers are about to reach for the donut, everyone around will start gushing on how strong we are by not tasting the donut. Huffff (sigh)…! There goes the donut. One last murderous look at it. The evil temptation that tried killing my will power is now cowering in the corner.
This is exactly what happens behind that squared shoulders and calm breath. Not just for a donut, but for many more things.
The new cute guy across the house, who has that sparkling dimple looks like a potential crush- Don’t even dream about it. Wounds are just healing.
That dazzling pearl earrings in the store- Baby, we are already broken for the month. Besides, you know that pearl doesn’t suit us.
One more tequila shot with lime- Hangover is already sure on tomorrow’s slot! When will you get a hold of yourself? Stop sloshing.
The boss who doesn’t understand your sarcasm- He ensures you pay your bills every month. Let’s call it a holiday for being sassy.
Next time you see a strong woman, turning down something beating the temptation, give her a standing ovation. Anyone who wins World War III single-handedly deserves at least this much.
