If you’ve got children, you know your first priority is your kids. A student, your studies. And so on.
If you’re going through rehab and you declare this your number-one objective, then you have to mean it. This means taking the extra time to painstakingly do things that will take longer, having patience, and seeking out expertise that will help you. As I mentioned recently, it will take focus.
Sometimes, though, some of life’s junk will get in the way, and it’ll distract you just long enough for you to turn your fuzzy mind away from what you’ve gotta do. I know this well, because some of my old junk just came up yesterday. And it was emotional. You know what I had to do? I had to address it and get it out of the way, let it go, and plunge on.
And that’s what I recommend you do, too. Face whatever it is straight on, deal with it — but only for the moment it requires — clear your mind, let go of the stress, and pick yourself back up and trot back to that gym. Failure isn’t in falling down; it’s in falling down and staying there.
C’mon, do you really need some sad ol’ drama weighing you down? Or do you have better things to do?
To our healing,
