“If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.” – H.G. Wells
“Do not be afraid of growing slowly; be afraid of standing still.” – Chinese├é┬ Proverb
I├é┬ was trying to figure out why I have been having├é┬ a tough time sleeping again. Then I realized I have been watching TV again right before bed, plus running around during the commercials to get stuff done.
Didn’t I already learn this lesson? Apparently not.
It’s easy to get frustrated with ourselves when we get off track. We think once we know what to do we should just be able to do it. However, habits and beliefs are ingrained and it takes a little time to adjust.
Each time you stumble is another chance to do it right. Another chance to remind yourself why you wanted this change. So ease up on yourself. Tell yourself, “Next time I am going to do it this way…” Learn, don’t lament.
Tonight, no TV before bed!
