Day One

Hopes. Dreams. Aspirations.

Today is the beginning of the rest of my life. Expanding on this thought, today is the beginning of the rest of your life.

Now, you and I, we can either strive to make our lives truly awesome and happy, or we can grow old and die filled with regret and sorrow.

There are many ways your life could go wrong, but none of those are as bad as the decisions you take that ultimately lead you down the path of regret.

I’ve made enough bad decisions for a lifetime and to be honest I am tired and disappointed of living a life I don’t want to live. There are days when going out is not an option and other people are just a nuisance to be dealt with.

The crux of the matter is, I want to make my life better, as do you. But I cannot make sea changes overnight. Nobody can. That’s why, I am aiming at improvement on a daily basis.

I’ve wasted the past nine years of my life, addicted to things that nobody should be addicted to, wrecking my life day by day and jeopardizing my future. But no more though. Join me as I try to improve my life, one day at a time.

Before I begin my journey to improvement, it’s important that I am fully aware of the obstacles and enemies I will face along the way. I’ve spent quite some time thinking about this. I feel people give up on their goals and missions because they do not fully audit their goals and list the possible obstacles they might face; hence they are unprepared.

In my fight against my addiction, the enemies I face are the triggers I might come across in my day-to-day life and the impulses that my mind will create, to deceive me.

Recognizing these triggers and avoiding them, and ignoring the impulses my mind makes up will be the key to success in my mission.

Failures are bound to occur along the way. They have occurred before as well. But previously where I used to just give up after a failure, this time I shall keep going, even on the darkest of days.

Thank you for your time.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?
