I did a thing today. What made it remarkable was it was quick, like a reflex.
Before parent conferences today we were brought a bottle of water and a snack. I took them, then saw the ‘snack’ was a bag of mini Oreos. I handed it back with a “oh I don’t eat these anymore.”
Wow. So light, so easy. No wistful yearning, no feeling of denying myself.
A small thing, but huge.
