You’re probably going to feel different about that later.
I say that to myself, a lot.
And I never regret following what flows from it.
- Not acting on anger.
- Resisting the urge to “say what I really think”
I recharge in solitude, ideally in nature.
I seek to fool myself that the solution (to everything!) lies in withdrawing from society.
I counter this faulty thinking by saying to myself… “I know you feel that way right now but you’re likely to need help, at some point, over the next 20 years.”
If you’ve ever been in a bad relationship then you might have a similar thought pattern…
…thinking that the problem lies in all relationships, not simply the bad ones.
I don’t have a mantra to help you get past your pain but I can say that my marriage is a great source of strength, stability and happiness for me.
“Better” is out there and it’s worth looking around.
Put yourself in a position to meet someone who shares your values.
Try to make yourself into the person you want to meet.
My BIG change for 2018 was waking up earlier, way earlier.
I’m up two hours before the rest of my household.
At first I used the time to surf instagram and drink coffee on the couch.
Eventually, I started going to the gym.
“Gym Days” are better.
Life is better when I’m stronger,
Even at 49.9 years old, I’m able to be stronger than just about all my peers.
Being stronger is available to you.
Four days per week, 30 minutes per day.
Results in… better!
Get up early, lift weights, be pleasant to those around you and when you are thinking otherwise remember…
…you’re probably going to feel different about that later.
