Week 1 – Temperance

Temperance: Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation

As part of the Plan for Attaining Moral Perfection series,  I will be living one of the 13 virtues described by Benjamin Franklin in the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin.  You can read how all this got started here.  This week I’ll be focused on living the virtue of Temperance.

Today will be hard since my New England Patriots are playing in the Super Bowl.  We’re hosting a party for the game, and there will likely be plenty of things to eat and drink.
