Why did I just do that?

My eyes are scanning the content of the pantry. Crackers, jars of beans, spices, cookies... My mind thinks "hm, those cookies are good but it is not exactly what I feel like right now." That is when I managed to think a step further. "What I feel like? Why am I here"? I had lunch 2 hours ago and when I think about it; My stomach doesn't feel empty! If I was, I wouldn't be so picky about what to eat! So why am I staring into the pantry?

Well... Before I stuck my head into the pantry I was trying to figure out how to make a technical change on my website. It turned out to be tricky and I still haven't quite figured it out. So I got frustrated and bored with it. I decided to take a break and guess what? These feelings of frustration and boredom led me to the kitchen. I just had a craving. I decided to go out on the balcony and water my plants instead (for those of you who don't know, I am a huge plant nerd). 10 minutes later, the frustration is gone and I go back to fixing my website issue. Do I not eat cookies? Of course I do! But when I choose to, not when I feel frustrated or bored.
