it's how you reach the goal





Confession # 436

Man.  That's a long way down the bandwagon...
I have fallen so far off the wagon I can't even touch it.  Nay.  I can't even SEE it.

Has this ever happened to you?  'Course not.

But life gets in my way sometimes.  My priorities get skewed and my time gets stolen and kids get loud.  And the wagon just keeps rolling away.

I never just DIVE off.

Ahh, the Plinko Board
I sort of... slowly bump my way down, level upon level, like the Plinko chip bouncing and dancing its way down to the stupid $0 slot, until I realize I'm holding on by a finger tip.  Then I get mad and let go completely.  Because THAT makes sense. (insert a huge roll of the eyes)

But this is the thing.  Life happens.  Convictions wane.  Priorities shift.  Goals change.

So you start all over.  You start from scratch.  You look at yourself in the mirror, disgusted and irritated with your own laziness and your own choices, and you start again.  Realizing, now a bit wiser, that lofty is ideal, but attainable is realistic.

And you cain't always have both ideal and realistic.  That would be too close to somehow making organic, gluten free, flour free, legume free, sugar free, peanut free, egg free, dairy free, corn free, fake free, diarrhea free, DELISH-OUS!! chocolate peanut butter cookies.  Just not gonna happen.
eww fish in cookies.  gross.

So, whatever you might be feeling isolated from, it's time to recapture it.

Maybe it's a little less sugar.
Maybe it's a little less wheat.
Maybe it's a little less medication.
Maybe it's a little less booze.
Maybe it's a little less tobacco.
Maybe it's a little less negativity.
Maybe it's a little less gossip.
Maybe it's a little less selfishness.
Maybe it's a little less complaining.
Maybe it's a little less drama.
Maybe it's a little less fast food.
Maybe it's a little less TV.
Maybe it's a little less iPad.
Maybe it's a little less pouty-pants.
Maybe it's a little less laziness.

Maybe it's a little more apple.
Maybe it's a little more exercise.
Maybe it's a little more green stuff.
Maybe it's a little more prayer.
Maybe it's a little more forgiveness.
Maybe it's a little more purpose.
Maybe it's a little more giving.
Maybe it's a little more laughter.
Maybe it's a little more apple cider vinegar.  (hey, one can hope)
Maybe it's a little more friendship.
Maybe it's a little more yoga.
Maybe it's a little more foam roller. (ahem, that means you)
Maybe it's a little more stretching.  (again, that's you)
Maybe it's a little more listening.
Maybe it's a little more music.
Maybe it's a little more snuggling.
Maybe it's a little more loving.
Maybe it's a little more writing.
Maybe it's a little more planting.
Maybe it's a little more singing.
Maybe it's ....

Maybe it's you becoming who you want to be.
Maybe it's taking your excuses one by one and removing them from your unhappiness.  Finding where you are and where you want to be are the keys to getting somewhere great.

But you have to start honestly.
What is holding you back?
Why are you holding yourself back?
What keeps you from making the better choice?
Is there a person attached to that answer?
Is there a place attached to that answer?
Is there a thing attached to that answer?
Is there a scar attached to that answer?
Where is that fear of success originating?
Why can't you seem to cross that threshold?



That's where you start.  At the beginning.  Before the symptoms.  At the dysfunction. At your chiropractor.  I mean, at least for your body issues that's where you start.


Once you can identify your starting point, you can start.  Otherwise you will shift and float in the tides of life never reaching your destination.  And only being frustrated by the journey.

Where do you want to go?  You have to have a map.  A starting point and an ending point.  Where do you want to go?  What do you want to accomplish?  Who do you want to meet?  Who do you need to forgive?

Plinko is a semi-calculated game of chance that, at one time, got played on the Price is Right.  You pick your starting point by figuring out where you want to go.  It doesn't always work out the way you think it might.  It bounces and dances it's way down the Plinko board to the end destination.  Depending on your starting point, you might hit it big or might end up at stupid $0, so pick you have to pick your starting point well.  You usually have more than one Plinko chip, depending on how well you played the previous game, so you get a few shots to get it right.

Thankfully life is a bit TOO much like Plinko.
So choose your starting point well.
It's how you reach the goal.



yeah.  what they said.
