My Head Hurts

October 21, 2013 | By | Add a Comment

My head hurts. I took a nap at 5pm. Bad idea. I knew it was a bad idea too. Apparently, knowing that something is not good doesn’t stop us from doing it, which is a remarkable thing to consider.

I feel as if I have done little of worth today. This was my own choosing. I lost the battle today to work towards something meaningful. The buzz of distraction drowned out the tasks set upon me.

But tomorrow is a new day. I am reminded of the words of William James, “If you want a quality, act as if you already had it.” I think I’ll try that.
