Pennies and Calories: Follow The Joy, Or Follow The Fear

Pennies and Calories: Follow The Joy, Or Follow The Fear

Two interesting things this morning at Starbucks.  Small, but at the same time significant:   my friend Cristina said she wanted me to help her make a decision….should she go to Target, or to the deli section at Publix (grocery store)….I asked, “why Target?”  She said the yoghurt.  I ask “Doesn’t Publix have the yoghurt?”  to which she replied, “Yes, but it’s cheaper at Target.”

And so I said that the difference in a few pennies is inconsequential, why not go where you really want to go, which, she confessed was the deli at Publix.

She smiled at me as she left and thanked me for helping her do what she wanted to do all along.

Then a few minutes later a young barista on her break was on line and looked like she was undecided on two food choices in her hand.  One was hard boiled eggs with crackers and cheese.  The other was a grilled cheese sandwich.  She said to me, “I just lost a couple of pounds, and I can’t decide which one, Maria.”

So, naturally, I asked her, which one would give her the most pleasure to eat, and without skipping a beat she said, the grilled cheese.  And so she put down the egg selection promptly, and thanked me as she picked up the grilled cheese.

When I thought back, it was interesting that Christina’s dilemma was about finances, and the barista’s was about her physical body.   Two subjects that have given most humans consternation, including at times, those of us moving into our integration.

And, while it may seem like those were small choices, a few pennies more (yoghurt), and a few extra calories (the grilled cheese) doesn’t it come down to the same thing for all of us?

Follow the joy, or follow the fear?

On my way out I said to myself, “My work here is done.
