It's a funny thing when you think about it. It makes no sense. Its hasty. Its generally not logical. It sometimes puts you in harms way, in one way or another. Yet, I do it nonetheless. I'm trying to teach myself to forever see the bigger picture. Don't eat the rest of the pasta, your going to feel disgusting if you eat too much. Don't have another drink, it will feel fine now but not in the morning. Don't skip your work to go to the gym, you say you are going to do it later but you never do.
All these actions, I feel, are unnecessary. I can survive without engorging myself. I can have fun without drinking. I can stay in shape without sacrificing academic obligations. These are all things that I can do easily, but the other way is even easier and more fun.
Don't misunderstand. I'm still going to succumb to these instances of weakness, but not nearly as often. I think I owe it to myself to use this part of my life to make the rest of it the best that it can be. If that means making a few sacrifices (and I literally mean a few) so be it. I can handle it. At the end of the day, I'll feel like a better person because of it.
P.S. If anyone reading this blog post is still in college or is about to go and your college/university offers the course "Positive Psychology", I highly recommend giving it a try. It's an awesome class.
P.P.S This post has nothing to do with the post script above, just thought I should throw that in there lol.
Have a good one!
