Unfortunately I am unable to do the next two prompts because I am not at home and don’t have access to my photos or a dictionary where I can pick out words randomly. So tonight I will write something else.
I am only three weeks away from being done with CPE. I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel as far as that is concerned. But I have to admit I don’t feel all that great about how my summer has gone. Sure, I have been busy with CPE, and that has been incredibly stressful, but I had high hopes that I would be able to do something else with my summer other than chaplaincy. I wanted to work on losing some weight for instance. This is hard enough for me without all the stress, so I don’t know what I was thinking setting a goal like that, still, I feel I have let myself down. Honestly, I am really terrible at meeting goals that I set for myself, there are certainly things I want to do, but I have spent so much of my life wandering around inside my own head, I actually find it difficult to do much without outside pressure.
Anyway, I will keep setting goals for myself and I will keep looking for ways to make myself turn these goals into habits. I know I am not the only one in the world who has problems like this, but I often feel that I have it particularly bad, that I am particularly weak-willed. It shows a distinct lack of character on my part. Is it possible to build character without outside assistance? Is there really such a thing as ‘self-help’?
I just got interrupted by a very long call. I suppose I can continue to talk about my self-discipline issues but I no longer care, I guess. Nothing happened in the call to make me less concerned with myself, I am just really tired now, and writing about myself is just as draining as talking about myself can be.
