Fight the Current

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.)
