Mind Over Matter

Yes, my blog smells of dust and neglect and I have no one to blame but myself. But I am back, at least for today. Just wanted to share something I wrote for a writing class I am attending:

As I sat there propped up against my contour pillow trying to sum up my day for a writing assignment, I caught myself smiling. It was one of my better days. I had accomplished most of what I had set out to do. But most of all, I’d made a decision to be strong – strong for myself and myself only.

In this world, many people don’t realise or rather refuse to admit that they are absolutely alone in this universe when it comes to deciding what they can or cannot do. You may have a great teacher but if your mind says that you’re stupid, you’ll remain an imbecile forever. You may have the best trainer but you won’t lose a single ounce of weight if you decide it’s too hard to climb up those steps.

Bottomline is your mind wins half of your life’s battles and your body is just an extension of it much like a weapon. At the end of the day, even if you don’t achieve the ideal goal that you envisioned, at least by deciding to do what you set out to do, you took the first step in getting there.
