Day 387 - Effort
So, yesterday I wrote how when having two options ahead of me, how I was PROGRAMMED to ALWAYS choose the FAST option. The fast option, or, the easier option. And I wrote how the fast/easier option is NOT necessarily the most effective option. For instance, there is somewhere I have to be. It will take me 10 minute by car to get there. OR, I can walk there, which will take be 30 minuets for instance. Obviously the easiest/fastest option is to use the car. BUT, personally, I'd like to WALK. Why? I get exercise, and I can take in the surroundings of nature/socialise with LIFE, the birds, the bees, the various insects, flowers, grass, LIFE - rather than stay seated in my car.
So, I wrote about TIME - how I preferred to choose the least 'time-consuming' option. I also want to write about EFFORT. Effort, F-IT (Fuck it). So, USUALLY I'd choose the option that requires the LEAST effort. Because I've seen effort as a CHORE. Effort = chore = effort - a constant spiral within equation. So, I see that I have to change my starting point to EFFORT. Instead of ALWAYS seeing effort as a CHORE - which in reality, will get me NOWHERE. If I'm doing something and seeing it as a CHORE, I'm going to be pissed off. Because it's like something that I don't want to do, or I'm being forced to do by my boss at work for instance.
Soo, effort. Hmm. Going back to my previous example; It DOES take 'effort' so to speak to walk for 30 minutes to get somewhere. But what are my benefits? Lots of benefits. It's kind of crazy, really. Everyone is in such a RUSH to do everything - albeit, most are FORCED to, we have so much on our plate so to speak. Work, kids, grocery shopping, general shopping, whatever else. So in that sense, I understand how it can be 'difficult' to STOP and look at the faster or the slower route to see which is more effective. I'm somewhat fortunate for now seeing as I have quite a bit of spare time on my hands, so I can walk, and enjoy my walk somewhere.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to ONLY see the PROGRAMMED EQUATION within myself of EFFORT = CHORE = EFFORT = CHORE.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to NOT be able to see the effectiveness and the BENEFITS of choosing the option which requires more effort or requires more time.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not choose the option which requires more effort because I've accepted and allowed myself to be 'lazy' within always wanting to do the EASIEST thing/option available - instead of putting in TIME and EFFORT - which can BENEFIT ME more than the FAST/EFFORTLESS option.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not realise that EFFORT CAN pay off for not only myself, but for others.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to DESIRE an 'easy life' that requires NO effort/no direction.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not see, realise and understand the SUPER MAJOR EFFECTIVE BENEFITS of DAILY WRITING within my Journey to Life - Yes it requires effort to write daily, but it's an AWESOME effort that provides AMAZING, LIFE CHANGING benefits that I would NOT be able to achieve if I saw writing as a CHORE/TIME CONSUMING/REQUIRING TOO MUCH EFFORT.
More to follow - thanks.
