Many people experience a gradual accumulation of unwanted things. One incident or action seems innocent enough, but after a repeated pattern a person is left with consequences that they wish they didn’t have.
Examples include: weight, possessions, debt or flirtations. Eating one donut or buying one thing on your credit card does not a dilemma make, but doing so frequently can add up to trouble.
If something isn’t positive or moving you toward a place you want to be, the quicker you realize it and take action the better. Especially when it comes to unwanted behaviors, it is much easier to apply the brake than to shift into reverse.
