You cannot mourn the fact that you did not act sooner. If you did not, you had your reasons. There is no going back to change the past, and there is really no reason for beating yourself up over a history that you cannot change. You can only work on today.
You can plan to do something in the future. Many of us put off as much as we can and relegate it to the future. Unfortunately, the future is not here, and you do not know what may come up in the future. Remember, the future is a ‘maybe’ on many levels. There are no guarantees.
So you are in the here and now. I like to call it “Today.” What are you going to do today? Make a list of what actions you wish to start and/or complete and go do it. No excuses. And never, “I am going to do this, but I am starting by taking a little rest.”
If you are tired, then work on your sleep habits. Set a plan and stick to it. The project is not something you should have done or will do. Put the plan in place, and take care of your needs. And yes, even the work for better sleep will not happen overnight.
We are not machines. We do not upload a program and go off never to error again. We are biological creatures, and a learning curve is almost always in place. Remember, do your best, but don’t beat yourself up in the process of self-betterment.
Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.
