Old too soon, Smart too late?

For my life up until the last two weeks I have been fighting the battle with myself the wrong way.  When I knew I had to do something I don’t like I have tried to push myself through keeping the negative attitude, hating what I had to do, and trying to last until it was done.

In the last two weeks I have discovered something I have probably heard for the last 50 years but have chosen to arrogantly ignore.

I focus now on how I will feel when I am done with the distasteful task.  I think about it and keep thinking about it and it motivates me to do the task and complete it.  This includes: water flossing my teeth, cleaning my computer screen and keyboard, snowblowing the driveway.

The possibilities are endless I now see.

“Old too soon, smart too late?”  Old too soon is true.  But it is never to late to learn.

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.
