Falling off the Horse


It’s tempting to stay down.  To not get back up.

Lay down – moping, blaming the horse for bucking you off.

Or you can remember why you got on the horse in the first place.  Remember why you set out on the journey.

And use that as motivation to continue on.

Habits are formed from consistent work.  Day in and day out.  Showing up even when you aren’t in the mood.  And it’s a constant battle of falling off and getting back on.

But we can’t let falling off, deter us from the plan we set out on.

It’s easy to fall back into the old ways and habits.

It’s hard to get back up, and stick with the course you set out on.

Changing yourself for the better.

The horse is ambivalent.  He will knock you off again to test your strength.

It’s up to you to get back on, and persist even when you don’t feel like it.

Motivation is key.  Is it worth it to you?
