try something different?
My goals for Lent were a bit ambitious. A lot ambitious. I only lasted about 34 hours.
I'll let you guess which one of those resolutions I broke first.
But I don't feel to bad about it. I'm not Catholic anyway.
Instead of finding a new way to deprive myself, I'm just going to try and be better person. So I made some new resolutions that I'm mostly going to keep to myself. Except for this one. We had a lesson about morality in institute. I know, I know. But it was actually a really good lesson!
There are a lot of negative influences that we can't avoid. It's not a matter of choice, they are just always there. We'll think of those influences as pollution or second hand smoke. The only way to 100% escape those influences is to totally separate yourself from the world and become a reclusive hermit.
But other things are choices. We choose what media we'll "ingest". We choose (for the most part) how we'll use our bodies. We choose how we'll react to situations that are out of our control. When we choose something that's wrong, it's like doing double-damage. It's like choosing to light up a cigarette in an already smoke-filled room.
Starting today, I'm really going to try and be more discerning about my choices. I haven't set any real hard rules about it, except I'm not allowed to watch Gossip Girl, Glee, or New Girl. I have a destructive relationship with those three shows, and I need it to stop.
I know guys. I'm really sad about it too. But we're just not good for each other.
Don't worry! I'm going to watch Psych instead because it is popular, innoffensive, funny, and uncomplicated.
