Life is about change. No matter what, you are going to change. I just want to try to direct it. That is why I am taking some advice from Dan Miller of 48 Days fame: Invest in yourself.
I’m embarking on campaign of personal change. I’m reading a lot of self-help, educational, and other useful books this year, but I don’t just want to read them. I want to act on them.
I’m no stranger to change. I went from being a Coke-only drinker to a primarily water-only drinker. I went from despising skirts and dresses to only wearing skirts and dresses. I went from eating vegetable-like products to drinking homemade, kale-based juice every day. Change is possible. Fear can drive it. Anger can drive it. Desire can drive it. But practice fuels it.
The more you change something about yourself to a positive, the easier it is to change other things. It’s like building up a muscle. You gotta keep at it, but if you stop, you can always start it up again.
So that’s what I’m working on, and that is what this blog will help me do: stay accountable.
