Found this on Facebook. Couldn’t believe what I read. You can say this came at an opportune time.
I’m in a plateau now in life. I just graduated, yet things just aren’t picking up. I’ll admit that I’m not working as hard as I could be, but it feels like the wind has died down completely. It almost feels like I’m in some sort of perpetual state of moving mediation; one where I am hanging on a tree like a fool (courtesy of Dark Wing Chun).
A state of mediation while hanging upside down from a tree? Or is my “ship of life” drifting in the open sea with no wind? Don’t know which. Whatever it is it doesn’t feel right. I’ve forced myself to do things: go online to look for work 4-6 hours/day at a time. But it seems the harder I force, the harder it becomes. Even my physical body seems to be lagging. Just a few days ago I went to the gym to lift some weights after a 2 week hiatus. 45 lbs bench press on each arm (free weight) is not a problem for me, but on that day it felt like I was out of gas – I couldn’t even lift my lowest weight ability. I attempted to some lighter weights but it seemed like my body was just out. It felt weird so I had to call it a day.
I felt like I should press on – like I always do. But I felt given the fact that I couldn’t even lift my minimal weight level, that I should call it a day. It sucked.
Anyway, that was just one example. Surprisingly I was able to run 8 miles non stop just this past Saturday, which was fucking awesome! It also bugged because I wasn’t able to lift a few days before. Perhaps this past week was one of those phases that Mr. Glass said about here.
Till next time!
