How many times have we said this before,"never mind lah, once in a while.let us enjoy" that phrase of "once in a while" is like being fooled by randomness. We thought we would just do it randomly,not habitually not compulsory and not regulary but sometimes the end result could send shiver down to your spine.........so the story goes.
Last night, my lovely wife was sharing this with me,she said" after paying off all the credit card bills,(she has the habit of paying off all her credit card bills, even before it appears in her next statement,not leaving one cent in the outstanding column), I am left with this meagre amount"
I was like kind of shock with her revelation, to me this could not be the case,(don't worry we still have some cash to shoulder on until the end of the month,,hahahahah)We have always been very careful of our spending, when I recollected the spending habits of us this month, i truly realized that we had indeed been fooled by randomness.
One weekend, we truly enjoyed ourselves with expensive dinner and I was telling my family, "never mind lah, eat good good, once in a while, must enjoy" then the next day without realizing it, i was saying the same thing to my family and another expensive dinner and the following weekend, it was the same statement I made.....................
After counting the amount of money we have spent on food alone, it was truly "out of norm" for me in particular, we did it as if the world was going to end or as if we still managed to have those,"once in a while" enjoyments.
Note : Good habits are hard to keep, sometimes.
P/S : Randomly, we can be fooled
