Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired | Day 9

Like yesterday, up at 6:45!! On the ground doing push ups and sit up variations……. Ran 2.3km with ease according to my Fitbit. And when I say with ease, I mean that my muscles weren’t tired at all by the end of it. I was shocked. This change was fast. It all seemed way to easy. 

Here’s my negativity or pessimistic attitude getting in the way again. After I showered, I began walking to work down an alleyway. Croft St. Alley. Barely a car with artsy graffiti everywhere. I walked like I was the star of my own show. I imagined that this was The Truman Show and that I was constantly being watched. That for some reason this all wasn’t real or that this wasn’t my choice. Like I was being silently nudged from something, some place or some person that I couldn’t see. Like my strings were being pulled by a puppeteer. I stopped taking drugs but my imagination never needed drugs. My ability to go off in far reaching lands was always there. A coping mechanism of sorts. One of my great strengths but great weaknesses. Does this sound like you?

These thoughts didn’t seem healthy to me. So I caught my breath and delved deeper into my soul. I started to think about my worthiness. A deep part of me was still saying I was unworthy of good things happening to me and that part of me was wrong. DEAD WRONG! I needed to rewrite that part of my software. Besides the physical, this wiring issue also needed to be part of my goal. I didn’t know how I was going to do it yet but I’d know it when I found it………And until then…… I’d walk.

And I walked and I walked and I walked.

Edward Ernest is pretty much the coolest guy that ever lived.......according to himself. He's one of the founders of and has zero respect from any of his colleagues.To the outside world, he's this very nice upstanding citizen, but behind closed doors he's one of the meanest people we know.Yes, he writes nice articles and gives good advice. It might even seem like he cares about you and wants to be your friend. But please, don't be fooled.We've seen him kick a dog a with a broken leg before and have heard him on the phone berating his grandmother for only giving him a $5 birthday gift.Be thankful he's not related to you.
