WHEN IT COMES TO BEING MASTER OF YOUR LIFE,
YOU ARE NEVER GOING TO FEEL LIKE DOING
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.
I know, this sounds sort of depressing but it actually makes me feel better. Why? Because it means I'm not crazy (not in that way, at least) and I'm not alone. How many times have you said to yourself, "I know I should...[fill in the blank] - eat better, exercise, get up when the alarm clock goes off, control my temper, be nicer, clean the house, watch less TV, spend more time on actual writing and not the trappings that go along with writing, etc."
At least we're trying. At least we're striving. To do better, to be better - in our craft, in our lives, for ourselves and for those we love. And even though it's difficult, even though failure hurts and that fall is a hard one, I'd still rather continue to try, to strive, to learn, to grow, to challenge myself than to just drift along and watch my dreams and potential drift right along with me.
This week, let's do something we need to do, even if we don't feel like it. We'll be better off for it.
