Be All You Can Be

Today, the sixteenth of April in the year of 2009, it snowed. A lot. And I realized that Utah is not making any progress. Rather than moving on from winter and into spring and the summer my heart has been yearning for, this state in which I reside is choosing to remain in a condition of frigid blizzard lame-ness.

Maybe Utah is reflecting my life.

Let’s see. Over the last two semesters, what have I accomplished?.... hmm. Well, I completed 2 semesters of school. Several of those classes I am going to re-take, because my grades were only mediocre. What else? I’ve been in and out of a few relationships, nothing new. I changed my major. I work a lot. Other than that? My spiritual life, my physical health, my social life, my relationship with my family, my general life direction… No marked progress. And I know I’m the one holding the rope that leads me down the path of my own demise.

I am the definition of stupid. One who repeats the same actions and expects different results.

Progress doesn’t just happen. It requires action, and positive action at that. Not only must you desire a change, but your actions must reflect that desire. You have to MAKE change happen. Or else a year goes by, and the steps you’ve taken down the path of progress are comparable to that of the black widow that my friend TJ pulled all the legs off of when we were little.

I don’t want to be an icky spider. So maybe I’ll find the motivation to make some progress with my life.
