You suffer because you make bad choices.
Typically when shit hits the fan we can trace things back to that exact moment it all began, which is usually of our own doing.
As Christmas day approaches many are gearing up for a feast.
Gluttony will rule the day.
Don’t get me wrong, eat, drink, be merry, just be mindful as well.
It’s not uncommon that over the month of December 2019 to perhaps even mid Jan 2020 (when most people go back to work) the ‘rules’ go out of the window.
This can lead to people gaining up to 2 stone in weight, most of which is usually fat, not good.
It’s oaky though because in the new year they will become later focused and mike next year their bitch.
Um, yea, no, no you won’t because you said that about 2019 and found every excuse imaginable to maintain the string of successive failures that have been accumulated over the last decade or more.
I guess at least in that way people are consistent.
It’s why new years resolutions are bullshit for the most part.
If someone truly wanted changed they’d already be well anther way to making it happen, as opposed to talking about it, making all the grandiose plans and then royally ballsing it ups within the first three weeks of the new year.
People just don’t want change, and that’s okay.
What gets me is who everyone talks about it, pats each other on the back and indulges one another bullshit.
Just stop it.
You know as well as I do that you’ll do nothing, simply because you don’t really want to and with the modern narrative of body positivity, accepting every flaw in a person (so long as it fits the social, economical, political narratives of the day) and generally pretending everything is great we are encouraged to do so.
True you don’t need to change, yet you should want to.
What is the sense in remaining as we are when there is so much to gain in experience, enjoyment and a sense of purpose/achievement from making the conscious choice to become more than what we are?
I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.
After stagnating for so long, making all the excuses and avoiding the future I’ve finally become too tired to entertain my own bullshit anymore, much less anyone else’s.
Take a look back at all the NYR that you’ve not hit.
Now ask yourself why you didn’t achieve them.
Finally make a choice, you want to change or you don’t.
Don’t get suckered in by enjoying failure and what is brings (sympathy, people being nice, an excuse to be weak), choose change, choose to struggle to succeed and embrace all the negative shit that comes with it.
In the end it will be worth far more to you than you realise.
