There are too many countless times I have TRIED to challenge myself, telling myself that I am going get this thing done because I want it to be done. Just like everybody else I start this challenge off all excited, determined and just READY for action! For the first three days I am on a roll…
“Nobody can stop me, I got this!!!” I would usually say to myself feeling proud and motivated.
Then look day four…
“where did my motivation and energy go?”…
“okay I will continue tomorrow” the famous line I use on myself to feel better
And then suddenly only a couple days left until the month ends
” OKAY NEXT MONTH FOR SURE!” and then this never ending cycle continues.
OH LOOK new year comes, same things are said and actions cycled.
and then you are there wondering what happened to the young lady that said nothing can get in her way? you know the driven and motivated one. I want to be her 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 4 weeks a month, 12 months a year, 365 days annually. Yes I want to be her.
Why is it so hard to keep a promise to yourself, yet you try extremely hard to keep promises to family and friends? Well maybe because you just know how being disappointed feels when the closest people make promises to you and let you down and you just really would not want them to feel that way.
Yet …you… yourself allow YOU to feel that way and the same feeling you are protecting others from is the same feeling you cause upon yourself.
Life is so strange and funny.
Well today, March 11, 2015, I was thinking that I need to challenge myself with anything possible, formulate a plan and stick to it and Keep the promise to myself, just like how I keep promises to other individuals.
I am writing this BLOG as a reminder that I need to put myself first in many situations, likewise, you should too.
Also when I finally do challenge myself and stick to whatever it is I can look back and read this and say, BIG UP TO MY 21 YEAR OLD SELF! she the real MVP. 🙂
Thanks for Reading.
