The resistance is strange

Like God, the resistance works in many ways. Like god, the resistance works when you sleep. Like god, the resistance creeps up on you when you least expect it. It even creeps up on you when you expect it too.

I recently went through a phase where I didn’t feel motivated to do things I normally would. There was a number of things I could put this down to, but for whatever reason I didn’t feel the desire to do things I normally do. This is quite obviously the resistance at work.

I’ve mentioned it before on this blog, but my dad taught me that when going through a big change in life, it helps to stay on top of daily tasks. Once you start to lost control of keeping your residence in order, that’s when trouble really strikes. But if you can keep your residence in order, it really helps you get through things. Once you feel things are back to a state of normalcy, you can go back to being messy again.

Anyway, I found that this did actually help me, and not only that, I helped me recover quickly.

The problem is, I have a lot of ideas but I think I’m not thinking big enough. I feel a bit lost in what I want to do, although I do have some ideas. I think both of these issues are the resistance and work, and I need to overcome them somehow.
