Self Delusion, we all do it

A person’s task is always to “begin afresh, afresh, afresh”. But this is so easy to forget.

It seems all people are afflicted (some for longer than others) once they begin to repeat themselves, once initial excitement and attraction have faded.

Yet it is devilishly difficult to detect in yourself and to correct.

In such times the mind grows lazy.

It doesn’t reach into itself for new challenges or go in search of excellence or inspiration being content to offer a rough caricature of yesterday’s presentation.

Soft, alluring so-likely option is to remain where we are or to only fiddle about at the edges without making substantive changes.

In effect becoming the running, jumping, standing still person…. stuck on the treadmill of habit.

Only a fraction of what could be.  What a waste?
