We have a religious tradition called "Manda", that is a sacrifice you offer in return for a big favor from God. Is not for everyday. We don't pay every thing we ask for, but in certain way we feel that it will help us. Anyway, I made one. I promised not to shop in one week. Nothing. Zero. Nada. And it's costing me more than I thought. Of course I'm allowed to buy groceries and things like that. But nothing just because I want it like paper or magazines. I feel like and addict in recovery!!! I see stuff I want all the time and almost for nothing. And it's been just 2 days! It ends next Wednesday and the time has never been slower. But well, that's the point. It's supposed to be hard. I already got what I asked, now is my turn.
I should have promised no food for a week. That would be easier.
