A little update from my #NoteToSelf project.
It's been more than a year since I started this happiness project and I failed to make 100 posts as I initiated to last year. The number stuck at 28. Let's admit it, it is hard to create a good habit.
I have battled procrastination all my life and it seems like laziness still raises its ugly head time after time. It's always easy to start when it is still warm and new, but once the task is no longer fun or exciting, putting things off seems like a good idea, especially when you know you have no consequences for doing so.
There is a quote that goes "it does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop" that I think it inspires me now. Failing a challenge that I created myself is never a good feeling and rather embarrassing. But hey, it's only a failure if you don't learn something, right? Matter of fact, this is a happiness project, a project that supposed to remind myself to stay positive everyday.
So instead of giving up, I allow myself to learn and keep going. And this time, a certain number is no longer the goal, but feel happy and content is. I will continue to make a post whenever I feel like reminding myself of something good.
And of course, I'll try harder to overcome the laziness that slows things down!
