Our own worst enemies

Posted Jun 24 2010 3:00am
It's late and I've had an especially exhausting past few days, so this may be incoherent. But I think in the end we are our own worst enemies. OK, I shouldn't generalize. I am my own worst enemy, how about that. I have really awful self-control when it comes to doing things I know I should do but don't want to. That very much includes resting and taking it easy instead of pushing my limits. I think that is absolutely the hardest lesson to learn for me. But I start to feel the teensiest bit better and get way too excited and shoot off into space. Well, that's highly exaggerated; I WISH! But I do an extra activity here or there when I really should be saving that extra energy (which will then be used to help get better, right...right....wishful thinking!). I mean, the activities are pretty low-key and minimal. It might just mean going to the park and laying out there instead of my bed or having the occasional dinner with my brother, but still! I end up way too exhausted afterwards, making me regret whatever I just did.  I've already come so far in learning to keep my flights of fancy at bay and forcing myself to be more vigilant of my energy expenditure, but I need to do better! How do I do better? I always feel like who I'm really fighting is me. And maybe a little bit of whatever is plaguing my body. :)
