Conflictions…

July 24, 2010 1 comment

So, if you haven’t read my other blog yet, here’s my story…. I’m trying to change myself into a “better” individual. That is, I’m trying to quit smoking and drinking as well as lose weight and become a more active individual. Yet here I am reflecting about last night and all the beers I decided to enjoy. What is it about that lifestyle that is so enticing? What about it makes it so hard to get rid of?

Well, I don’t know why it is so hard to change, but… my wife had an epiphany today… she told me that this life of smoking and drinking is easy because that is the way we met when we were young. So basically, it is familiar territory, common ground, and although we may fight and get angry with each other as we proceed through our personal struggles, we must continue to build upon each others strengths and slowly but surely push away the weaknesses.

So I continue my struggle to become the person I see myself being and let the sun shine upon a new day (only in the picture though because it looks like another rainy day today… Oh well!).

Ok everybody, enjoy your day and let me know what your personal goals are or what your struggling to overcome! And don’t forget to check out my other blog: Food, Cycling & Sweat.
