Picking Up the Pieces
I recently turned twenty seven and for whatever reason this has caused me to do a lot of self reflection. After some reflection there are many areas of my life that I am not happy with. I am committed to creating the life of my dreams.
I am not happy with my financial situation. I feel like this unhappiness is starting to spill over to other areas of my life.
I have not been earning enough money and I have not been consistent with my savings and investments. Instead of using this unhappiness as motivational fuel to push harder to increase my income I have been drinking and smoking to feel better.
Thinking about this makes me feel terrible since I believe I have only been making my financial problems worse by increasing my expenses and my long term unhappiness.
Drinking and smoking hasn’t resolved any of my problems and I have only added to my list of problems by not using a healthier coping technique.
I have been focused on making myself feel comfortable instead of staying focused on the areas in my life that I am not satisfied with. By distracting myself and ignoring the pain of thinking about my problems I have only made my problems worse.
I am ready to face the pain. I am tired of ignoring it and making myself feel okay about my situation.
I am ready to change.
I am ready to make a plan to create the life of my dreams.
I am ready to face the truth.
I am ready to quit smoking and drinking.
I am ready to create new and positive obsessions to replace my old addictions. I believe this is the key to improving my life. I want to harness the power of my addictive personality to become obsessed with my dreams.
I am done distracting myself and wasting time. I know it will be painful and hard to eliminate these vices from my life. I believe that it will be worth it. If I can get through the pain I have caused by allowing myself to become an addict then maybe I can start to improve my life.
