Wannabe-developer, Day 2. 5: Turn around

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Four screens stared at me: CNN blaring in the background, SparkPeople CEO's frozen on my laptop, cinematic soundtracks paused on my tablet, and my phone blinking with Twitter updates. Last night I got distracted from completing chapter 1 of the Ruby on Rails tutorial. I passed the 15-minute mark for my daily goal, but I kept my ass in seat even longer. I got a little down on myself especially after talking to a friend yesterday who herself was depressed--but this morning I did 6 minutes of yoga. The trigger? The following quote from Coach Nicole's Twitter account, "No matter how long you've gone down the wrong path, turn around."

    So true isn't .. so easy to say well I blew it so I will start tomorrow. The truth is at that very moment we realize we are off track the moment to turn it back around.. I agree even 6 minutes is better than none.. better than letting the whole day go. Good for you .
I'm glad you helped your friend , but their depression can depress us.I'm glad you turned it around..
