Stoopid PTB, and their incessant flicking in my head. Read the “going through the emotions” article in the wellness section and got flicked. This part really stood out:
“You can be the hammer, making things happen, or you can be the nail that sits there and gets pummeled over and over. “
Then the community highlight email with this:
“It’s been 4 months now… and I’ve lost just over 40lbs. Still a long way to go, but for the first time I feel calm and in control of my dieting strategy. I wake up every morning and plan my meals. Yes it means I have to wake up earlier than before, but when I weigh the 2 options against themselves it goes something like this…
Option 1: Miss out on 30 minutes of sleep
Option 2: Get heckled in the street by strangers
Option 1 always wins. Always. “
I (and other people) always make things filled with shades of grey, but really, there’s just black and white: Do it or don’t. Anything in between is the grey area of excuses.
It’s all a matter of stopping the squirlly behavior, stopping the indecision, and making up my mind to do it or don’t.
Scary thing is this applies to a few things in my life right now…
Heh… It’s Hammer Time! 🙂
