Hopelessness: The Sequel
Friday, June 15, 2012
It's been said that Love makes the world go 'round, but Hope is the fuel that makes it happen. Without Hope, people give up. Nothing matters. 'What's the use' becomes the motto. Hence: hopelessness. Hopelessness is a buzz kill. It is a death knell -- especially for anyone trying to lose weight. So today, when a feeling of hopelessness came over me, I decided to confront it head on instead of letting it have its way with me. So I asked myself why was I feeling this way. Answer: too much weight to lose (100+) and it will take forever. Next, I dissected each of these points. Point 1-Too much weight to lose. Really? Well, has it been done before? Yes. Will it be done again? Yes. Then it is doable. Point 2-It will take forever. Really? That is the thing about hopelessness, it often deals in exaggerations. It will take some time, yes, but not forever. I immediately felt better -- even invigorated. I was the dragon slayer and hopelessness was the dragon I just slayed. (insert pump fist) Haha, the games we play to get through the day. But I say, whatever works to keep you on track to reach your goals and slay those dragons.
