Virtuous Circle: New Day #1


Friday, August 13, 2010

I've been here a LOOOOONG time. Sometimes I'm 100% committed - sometimes, not so much. I've climbed 'back on the wagon' so many times you'd think my arms would be in great shape! When I 'catch' myself slipping, of course, I want to get back on track and feel almost compelled to announce my new found commitment and my fresh start to my Spark Friends. And it feels good to publicly wipe the slate clean and start over. BUT, after so many fresh starts, it starts to get a little embarrassing.

PLEASE tell me I'm not the only one who feels this way . . .

It is kind of like being stuck between a rock and a hard place . . . I can't seem to actually START the fresh start until I've announced it BUT I'm too embarrassed to announce it AGAIN.

Don't you just HATE a vicious circle?

We've all heard of a vicious circle . . . you keep doing the same things over and over and your downward spiral just reinforces what you are doing. But I'd never heard of a VIRTUOUS circle. A virtuous circle is were you keep doing the same things over and over but the result just get BETTER and BETTER. The spiral is an UPward spiral that also reinforces what you are doing.

I'm not making this stuff up! Check it out on Wikipedia:

Somehow, it seems easier now to announce a fresh start . Maybe it sounds silly, but, if it works, silly is good!

So . . . please be advised that today, Friday, August 13, 2010, is new new fresh start! WooHoo!
