It is amazing how easily you can fall into the pity pool. If I really want to I can make myself feel like I am not where I want to be and never will be. Right now I am planning a wedding, moving into a new apartment, working, creating a business, thinking of future works of fiction, developing a workout regimen, blogging, social mediaing and much more. And yet I have no problem jumping into the pool of “my life is not exactly where I want it” and therefore I am a failure. Absolutely amazing.
So I pick myself up and I CHOOSE not to focus on the things that I do not YET have and I CHOOSE to focus on what task I have to do next to get me one step closer to getting them. Sometimes, all you need is a little perspective. (And a little pep-talk doesn’t hurt.)
