One thing I’m really working on

I always tell myself I’ll do something. We all do. Most of us don’t ever do it.

Some of us do it half way then stop, because we are full of valid excuses and a very few of us do it regardless.

How to be in the very few category?

I found the answer. I did. You can fall off the wagon and forgive yourself.

What is the wagon?

The wagon is the journey you set yourself on. The one where you promised yourself to do something, even if it’s as simple as ” cook lunch today ” .

Notice that I typed forgive. But not forget. This is also a perfect occasion for all you people who are into rock and or roll to listen Papa Roach’s song ” Blood “. The first time I heard this song I was in junior high. I went out and secretly bought the album because it was so so good.

Here’s the first verse and most importantly the chorus too :

I will forgive but I won’t forget
And I hope you know you’ve lost my respect
You better watch out ’cause you don’t know what’s going on around you
You better think twice before you fly off the handle and lose it
You better join us before you get lost in the shuffle
You gotta rise against the demons that are gonna try and hold you down
Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?
Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?
Let me now explain the relevance of this song to what I’m talking about. You forgive yourself for falling off the wagon or getting left behind due to life not being aligned with our schedules.
I will forgive but I won’t forget
You forgive yourself for not being a machine but never forget about getting back on the path to your dreams, goals, plans, and cooking a delicious lunch for you and your loved ones. Or else you become a leaf passing by. If that sounds romantic to you then stay where you are.
And I hope you know you’ve lost my respect
You better watch out ’cause you don’t know what’s going on around you
You better think twice before you fly off the handle and lose it
Those who you look up to, those who are living lavish lifestyles, those who have ” made it  ” in your eyes are people you know absolutely nothing about. Don’t wish on becoming someone else or living a certain way as so and so. One man’s meat is another man’s poison. Work on becoming the best you . And work on doing work just as good as your admirers because you know nothing.
You better join us before you get lost in the shuffle
You gotta rise against the demons that are gonna try and hold you down
Get back to your wagon and join those are changing the world, living magnificent lives and leaving this place bette than it was. Fight through the pain, the gravity, the pull from society, the laziness and the demons inside you. And just take one step back into the wagon.
Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?  
You are the one you love. Do not betray him/her.
If you can’t do it today. Do it tomorrow. The day after or next week, but please leave behind the all or nothing mentality for it will destroy me. *Note to self.
