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?
