Some stuff is just,seemingly, unshakable. I know that I’m not the only one who tries to break a bad habit and does well for a while but eventually goes right back to it. Then, of course, I feel like a failure so I have a moment of disgust that brings me to change and I get back on the right track…only to fail again.
And the cycle repeats itself.
Well you know what I’ve decided?
Keep on trying.
There’s nothing “wrong” with failure. In order to fail you have to at least try. It’s better to suffer and be humiliated and push yourself and grow and gain character than to sit and do nothing because it’s comfortable. And if something’s not worth fighting for, then it’s really not worth having.
Anywho, I’ll be taking a break from my social networks (not including the blog-obviously) for a little while. Blog posts to facebook and twitter are automatic so don’t think I’m cheating 😉
Every now and then we have to cut out our distractions and focus on what’s really important. I have learned that it’s typically human nature- or at least this human’s nature- to replace one addiction with another.
I am currently in the process of cutting out my addictions rather than shuffling them around. There is so much life to be lived and
we I spend too much time watching others live theirs on FB and twitter. I’m not saying anything is wrong with these networks, I’m just saying that we need to know how to handle them as a miniscule pastime and not a way of life.
Sorry, I’m getting all over the place here. The point is: I have found myself getting caught up in things that don’t really concern me are that aren’t important to the neglect of my own self- improvement. How can I work on myself when I can’t even sit still for 5 minutes without picking up my phone to see what’s going on in Twitterland?
I don’t want to be a zombie and live an unconscious life. I want to strive to truly be my best. In order to do this, I have to focus. Old habits die hard, but I plan to try hard. I want to give life my best and to do so, sometimes you have to turn down the noise, lace your boots, and dig in.
Hiatus- Day 2.
P.S.- Now my random car pics will finally have a home. I swear there are hundreds of them! ;p
