Five Stupid Things I Do

  1. Letting myself get dehydrated. It’s too much trouble to get water, and I’m working, so I’ll just shrivel up and get that weird, dizzy feeling I like so much.
  2. Wasting time on social media. Building a marketing plan is one thing. Clicking on dumb links and getting into arguments or insulting people will not improve my life or the world. I have to stop this.
  3. Not eating when I need to. I wonder why I am so exhausted by 4:00 when I eat one orange and a slice of toast between breakfast and, well, 4:00. I just discovered that I have a ton more energy to keep up with a busy toddler if I actually eat and sleep.
  4. Not following a plan. Plans help you get to where you want to go. Doing what feels good is sort of a path to nothingness. Or worse.
  5. Not loving the ones around me. Every soul dies without appreciation. It doesn’t matter how many faults I can see in my friends or family members, love will make me and them better people. Words of affirmation, acts of kindness, this is what they need. It’s stupid to nag and pick on people. They won’t change and I’ll lose them emotionally.
