The day I filled the prescription for the antidepressants...
I took them home, pulled the bottle out of the little paper bag the pharmacist gives you, got down to eye level with the bottle and stared at It for a long time, contemplating if this is the way I want to go with my life. Do I potentially want to be medicated forever? Don't get me wrong, some people need it, and it makes a world of a difference for them. However, in that moment, I felt deep inside this was not the decision for me. In that moment I decided that I needed to change the way I was living my life.
The word decision, in Latin literally means, "to cut off."
Making a decision is about "cutting off" certain choices, forcing you to make new choices, therefore redirecting you on a different course of action. That's what I had to-do! My pendulum had to swing so far from where I was to get me started on the road to where I wanted to go. I had to become obsessed with me, my health, my food, my fitness and my body. Yes! Throwing myself into this new world is what I needed. I needed to be engulfed, up to my neck in it, so there was no seeing where I was coming from. I needed to go forward from here or I was afraid that I might find another path and settle for less.
What have you decided?
The worst thing you can do is sit on the fence or half-ass it. When you sit there on top of the fence, teetering back and forth about what to do, you waste time. Not only do you waste your time, you waste other people's time. You're procrastinating at this point and this is not going to get you the results you want. It may accomplish some teeny tiny results, but it won't loose those last 10 lbs, get you the promotion you want, or land the new confidence you have always been seeking.
Procrastination; directly from the Latin word procrastinatonem means "a putting off from day to day".
STOP waiting for another Monday, or a new month, start today! Jump off the fucking fence and land on the other side. Yes, you may hit hard, even roll a couple times, but guess what? You made a DECISION! You are taking action for your life and the things you really desire. It's your time butterfly, your time to fly! Never regret but always learn from every step you take, be it good or bad.
If you're waiting for a sign this is it!
