Any Start is Better Than No Start At All

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

... is what I'm telling myself.

After being stalled and then starting to backslide, I reset my SparkStreaks and committed to using all the tools available. At least until the end of the year. That's not very long. Just a bit over two weeks. I can do that.

The scruffy little imp voice that shows up when I turn my attention to running is now showing up to disparage blogging. The standard comparision and perfectionism and wait until conditions are better and you really feel like doing this. Sigh.

Sorry, little guy, you need to sit in the back while I run this experiment just until the end of the year.

    Sounds like a emoticon experiment to me!

    You can do this...positivity will get you everywhere. Staying positive and having a little humor will help you survive the good, bad and everything in between days. You show the imp whose the boss. Lol!!

I hope you kick this cold soon.

    Yay for the first blog!

Don't worry about perfection. Sometimes yammering is how you get to where you need to be.

At least that is what I tell myself....

    I figure most blogs are good if they are honest (don't get me started on people who post the punchline from a Garfield cartoon as their blog).

    What a clever conversationalist/writer you are!

I think all of us have a "...scruffy little imp voice that shows up when..." we try to modify our habits/thinking, and it's nice of you to pull the little devil out of our psyches so cleverly.

"The standard comparision and perfectionism and wait until conditions are better and you really feel like doing this."


I think you're on to something--honest assessment of what you need to do. Now that you've named the problem, you're on your way to correcting it.

GREAT job.

    Nice job diverting attention from the imp! My brat and I have a similar dynamic.
Hope your snuffles get gone soon!
