I found this quote today that spoke volumes to me: Make a sincere effort to apply resolute effort against the forces of inertia, and good fortune will follow.
Basically what it is saying is get up off your keister and something good will happen to you. Of course, I agree with this. I’m not sure if everyone knows how extra-lazy I usually am used to be in the summer. For those of you who didn’t, there it is. Knowing that I don’t have to do anything or be anywhere, I am on my own time schedule. I do what I want when I want. Most of the time that ends up being nothing.
I know that this stems from my being a housewife for most of my adult life. That is why I avoided signing on to a permanent job for as long as I could. This job is my first permanent job. Ever!
I knew last summer that I did not want this to be the case anymore. Although I do enjoy relaxing for a couple of days, after a little while it becomes monotonous, and I don’t know how to break it. I just wallow in nothingness- sitting on the couch all day or surfing the web for hours on end.
In the beginning, there was nothing like it. Relaxing all day and doing nothing. Are you kidding? I was in heaven. I was entranced- hypnotized even- by my new found freedom.
Needless to say, that time is over. I am over the doing nothing. I know that I need to make a conscious decision to better myself and my situation. For everyone, there comes a time when we have to make that decision. No matter what it is you want to change about yourself, you know that you need to do what you need to do to make yourself and/or your situation better.
So, get up off your keister, do what you need to do, and good stuff will happen to you. Partly because you’re making it happen!
Think about it, then do it!
