day 2.

it may just be me, but whenever I’m embarking on a brand new discipline, thought pattern, or daily habit, Day 2 is always the hardest.

it’s not day 1, where you are filled with determination and excitement for the new direction your are sending yourself in…

it’s not day 3, where you are thinking “hey, I’m a bad ass! I’ve been doing this for more than 1 day, it’s actually becoming easier – why stop now?”…

or day 4, 5 or 20 (!) where you can’t remember the you that didn’t have this daily habit…

no!

Day 2 is a no-mans-land – the fresh excitement starting to wane, reality setting in, too many days ahead of you to feel super motivated and not enough days behind you to call yourself a bad ass…

HOWEVER!

Day 2 is tough because (in my very, very humble opinion), it is the most important.

Day 2 is the day where you could say “eh, I haven’t been doing this long enough to call it a big loss. I will try again next week…” It is the day you could get distracted, come up with excuses, decide to change direction, wonder if what you have decided on is actually something worth pursuing…

Day 2 is the day where sh*t becomes real.

So! what do we do with Day 2? guys, we hang in there. We wait it out, knowing it’s the hurdle to get over, knowing it’s the bridge to the much-more-pleasant Day 3, 4, 10, 30, 75, 365 – you know?

so start today. get through day 2, and let the magic unfold. get that snowball rolling. If not now, then when? next week? next month? year? how old will you be then? Will you wish you would have started today? the answer is a resounding YES 🙂

also, let’s all help each other remember, we are all only promised today.

love you all.
