It's called LETTING GO...
It became overwhelmingly apparent to me today I have a few bad habits I need to quit RIGHT NOW. I am not sure how to go about it though. Some of these habits are so ingrained in my psyche, I fear I might not be able to let go. Others, I just need to quit cold turkey and never look back. To name a few impersonal ones:
Bad habit #1: Being Late EVERYWHERE. I know it's in my last name, but it needs to stop. Being at work at 8 does not mean leaving at 8.
Bad habit #2: Attempting to do TOO much. It overwhelms the perfectionist in me and brings out the fierce procrastinator. I don't like it.
Bad habit #3: The candy jar. It gives me a stomach ache, yet I continue to reach deep down into it almost everyday. No more.
I'll keep the remaining four to myself for personal reasons, however, I am going to track my progress here. I guess it's the equivalent of gold stars...
The magic eight squish on my desk reads: "Without a doubt". There is hope for me after all.
"A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone."
-Henry David Thoreau
