Overcoming My Own Worst Enemy

Lifestyle & Culture | March 10, 2009

I moved from a small suburban town to the city of Vancouver 6 months ago. I graduated university and quickly got a job in the city so that I could dive into the lifestyle and culture I had always dreamed of. I always thought that my location was holding me back but I've since discovered that no external factor was ever the reason behind my lack of success, it was simply me. I have the uncanny ability to talk myself into doing everything and quickly talking myself out of it the next day. I think my laziness may play a major factor in this. And now, living in the city, opportunities surround me and here I am at 9 o'clock in the evening trying to resist the urge to just give in and watch television, again.

However, I am determined and now putting it in print that I will do the things I've always said I would do. The first is to write, hence the blog. The second is to learn to play the guitar. The rest I'm going to make up as I go along, but my guess is that it will include some if not all of the following: learning another language (probably Spanish since I took it in high school); learning to sew; taking a course; being a tourist in my own city; jogging; taking up yoga; in general being more active; and taking as many pictures as I can. The last one definitely won't be hard, assuming I remember to charge the batteries for my camera.

Any Comments?
