Don’t waist new tears on old problems
I can’t remember who that quote was from I think it was Epictetus but I’m not sure
But I love it for two reasons
1 it was saying that it’s ok to cry, it’s ok to feel down and let something bring you down temporarily.
Were all human we have emotions.
2 its saying that eventually we have to move on, there is only so much we can do or cry about something before we have to carry on with our life.
Cry, let it out and move on.
It’s easy to lose sight of purpose and motivation during the lockdown,
When you can’t really do much and the days just seem to be the same,
The excuse ill do it tomorrow sounds greater than ever.
Let’s face it, what harm is another lazy day going to do anyway, when tomorrow is just the same.
Well, the harm is great.
One lazy day isn’t too bad, but another leads to another and so on.
The more lazy days we have the harder they are to break those cycles.
Stay strong, break the day that thing that you were putting off till tomorrow,
Do it today.
You’ll find you feel much better.
Motivation is not your friend.
If you only wait for motivation to get going then you won’t get very far.
You are never going to find enough motivation to start something completely new,
And if you do it will be hard to get it to stick around once it does show up.
Motivation isn’t a very good freind.
It’s like the one friend who appears after all the chaos has ended and the waters have settled
Don’t rely on that friend
If your anything like me or like I used to be you can’t help but worry about what’s coming tomorrow…
(Tomorrow being an example of a scenario in the near future that you can’t avoid)
You worry so much about that certain scenario, It’s all you think about all day every day, It consumes you.
