Isn’t it interesting, when we start something new, we are full of energy, we feel strong, and invincible? Then, after a while, we notice that our pace has begun to slow a little. And then a little more, and a little more. Your mind starts saying things like, “Boy this is kind of hard.” Or “Hmm I’m not really enjoying this.” Then, “It’s ok to take one quick break. I’ve been doing so well. I deserve a little time off.” And lastly, “Yeah, this sucks!” The next thing you know, there’s another goal that has fizzled down slowly into non-existence.

(Things like how I spend my time, what I do with my day. etc.) There are times when I say "yes" when I really mean "No." Times when I over-exsert myself to show up for people I barely even know.
