How’s it going with the new year’s resolutions? Did you make any? Are you still following them? Were they ones you’ve tried before or did you come up with something completely different?
Why am I asking now? Because by this point, the fun of a new thing, like a shiny toy, is past. What you are left with the hard part of putting one foot in front of the other and still doing what you set out to do. This is where it gets boring. Or really hard. Or ugly. Where you have to dig really deep and do it not because it’s fun, but because you’ve set your mind to it and that’s all.
Or maybe you didn’t. Maybe you were okay for a few weeks, but then you had a bad day. And it was too hard to keep going. So you went back to your previous way of acting.
We’re human. We fall. It’s ok. Just don’t stay down. Get back up and try again.
