Cutting myself some slack...

I have always been an all or nothing kind of guy, and that trait has only hardened over recent years - I’m on 1172 straight days of posting these pages, I have mediated for over 500 days in a row and every new habit I add into my daily routine is with an every day or not at all mindset.

And whilst most of the time that’s good - the desire to NOT break the streak keeps me going on days when I’m just not feeling it - it can sometimes bring with it a pressure that makes the habit less enjoyable, or worse, it can lead to ‘going through the motions’ just to keep the streak going.

So while I plan to keep meditating, exercising, journaling and posting every single day, I’m going to cut myself a bit of slack in other areas of my life - and be comfortable with the fact that 6 days out of 7, 28 out of 30 and 95 days out of 100 have still moved me a long way forward from where I was before….
