Why Am I Still At It?

It’s not working.

It’s taking forever to get there, and that’s a loose definition.

It’s wrecking havoc on you.

So why do it?

Yes, it’s resilience :

“the power or ability to return to the original form, position, etc., after being bent, compressed, or stretched; elasticity.”
 
But far more importantly, I want to.
 
I have a goal. There’s some place I want to, no, need to go. I have a clear picture in my mind of where I want to be.
And I know I should just get on to it. All these little hiccups are just that – hiccups. They are meant to test, not dissolve me.
They are there to help me discover and distill. If I decide to change, so be it. I won’t lose sleep over it – I’ve changed my mind, and I am free to do so. So that I can move on to what will rock me.
 
But find that thing – that thing that will indeed, rock you.
I found mine. And I am not letting anything get me down.
 
If you know where you want to go, what you want to do, whatever comes in your way, doesn’t really bother you. It can be distracting, it can be a setback, by all means. But it doesn’t affect you to the core – because that part of you has worked it out and figured out what you want to do.
