i hear a lot of “don’t fight fire with fire” said to oppressed groups, but i NEVER hear anything like “don’t start the fire” said to oppressors
but we didn’t start the fire
Do I start singing Billy Joel here?
IT WAS ALWAYS BURNING SINCE THE WORLD’S BEEN TURNING
I say that I “hate people” but really I’m just too lazy to say “My social anxiety makes me feel extremely uncomfortable and awkward around other people therefore I find it difficult to socialize with them.”
I say that I “hate life”, but really, I’m just too lazy to say “The challenges that I am currently facing, combined with my fears about the future are bringing me down, therefore I find it difficult to motivate myself.”
Imagine waking up on the last day of march and knowing that you worked your ass off for 30 days straight. Imagine looking in the mirror and grinning because you’re actually seeing results: your stomach is flatter and more toned, your legs are becoming shapely and ‘dat ass’ is looking rounder than ever. Imagine looking in that mirror and feeling proud that you ate clean for 30 days. Yes, you allowed yourself the occasional treat but in general you were fantastic and stuck to your healthy regime. Hell, you even enjoyed it. Imagine the feeling of pride you’ll have, and the feeling of confidence knowing that now you’ve done one month the next month and the months after that will be easier. Imagine trying on some old jeans and feeling the space in the waist-band because you are so much slimmer now. 30 days. 2 Litres water per day, 30 minutes working out a day. A clean diet. That’s all. Let’s make March our fittest month yet. Who’s with me?
