MY THERAPIST TOLD ME
THE WAY TO ACHIEVE TRUE INNER PEACE
IS TO FINISH WHAT I START.
SO FAR, I'VE FINISHED TWO BAGS OF M&MS
AND A CHOCOLATE CAKE.
I FEEL BETTER ALREADY.
I used to finish every book I started reading. Didn't matter if I wasn't enjoying it - I started it, I had to finish it. I'm like that with a lot of things in my life, and I believe that creates more stress than necessary.
The sense of satisfaction when you finish a project is wonderful, no doubt. But I'm learning that stopping something I'm not enjoying, something that's not working for me, is wonderful in a different way. It's freeing. And it's a feeling I hope to experience more and more as I try new things, explore different creative outlets.
This week, let's finish something we started. Or, let's not. The choice is ours.
