Here we go again

today's the day it really came out of my mouth: "Something's got to change." And so, by way of accountability. Here we go. A change.

Today is day 0.

Technically, it’s day 5, but today’s the day it really came out of my mouth: “Something’s got to change.”

And so, by way of accountability. Here we go. A change.

The problem, in brief

  • The stress is too high
  • The interests are too low
  • The way out is unclear

Stress

I’m 50% of a business. I do, theoretically, what I love, but you would honestly never know it from the way I behave. This has to change, before I go insane and the business goes kablooey. (Technical terms here, okay?)

Interests

In short, I have none. Everything I used to be absorbed by has gone by the wayside. It’s to the embarassing point now that I tell people what I used to do for fun.  You know, because I was cool at some point years ago.

The Path

There’s always a way out of the woods. Now, just to find it.

The current theory is this:

  • Fix the diet (in progress, day 5).
  • Get off my lazy, stressed butt and DO something active on a regular basis.
  • Find a hobby. Heck, diversify and find a few.
  • Learn to manage stress in a way that doesn’t involve the current solution (Clue-by-four: pretending it doesn’t exist while fuming isn’t fooling anyone, including me.)
