Day 12: The Excuses
So what do we do with all those excuses? How do we train our brain to stop making these "buts" and "what ifs" and "I can'ts"? A friend of mine started this meditation routine recently, and he swears it started changing the energy around him within a day. People stopped him and told him he was looking exceptionally nice, people who usually never said a word to him. I am a believer in good and bad energy, so I can imagine what he told me was true. But I still have that nagging voice in the back of my head saying "You can never get rid of me! I'm too powerful now! I have taken over your life, and I'm not letting go! Ahahaha!" How I would like to grab that little voice by the throat and squeeze it until its little eyes pop out!
All this is, of course, easier said than done, because "done" starts with "do." I have to get off my ass and actually do those things I keep saying and wanting and needing. It's proving a harder task than I thought after so many years of letting that little voice talk instead.
