"Happiness is a place between too little and too much."
~ Finnish Proverb ~
Although we don't think of it in these terms, sugar is a powerful drug- maybe one of the most powerful. It's habit forming and creates a craving in us. It gives us a little buzz of sweetness and good feelings, and then drops us on our backs.
And we play around with it like it's nothing- like it's innocent and innocuous, but it's not. It will trip us up sure as cocaine. In light of this reality, let's be sure we are properly managing our sugar intake, and that it is not managing us.
I interact cautiously and respectfully with sugar knowing that it can hook me sure as any drug.
