Reinforcing lessons learnt

June 11, 2010

I think that hubris and complacency are something I need to be mindful of.

Previous attempts to cease or contain my grappling with the grog never really succeeded beyond 6 months.

I’m thinking of it like a bicycle – one needs to keep pedalling to maintain momentum.

But it is easier to maintain balance when a modicum of speed has been attained.

And all this cycling builds up the muscles.

So that the inevitable hills are more readily surmounted.

I’m still benefiting from occasional external support. But the common thread in all my trials and travails is….me.

So more work on internalising of reinforcement, mindfulness, observing and managing my own reactions, planning and care of the self.

Just to name a few.

Life is good.

The day is clear

the air is crisp

the wind is cleansing

soft caressing

corrugations absent

in my person present

this I long did miss

    I like that analogy. Very apt.
