mrrrr. Note to self: Never drink, not even a tiny bit, after performing strenuous physical activity. I had one hard lemonade, which usually doesn't even get me buzzed (just makes me feel somewhat more relaxed)... and now I have mild-but-annoying headache.


I'm one of the most undisciplined people I know. I always manage to get my shit done somehow, but I never do it when I don't feel like it, even when said task is mental-health-related.

I can usually muster up the willpower to do what I need to do (physical activity, meditation, cleaning, etc.) to keep myself functioning. But that happens sporadically, and all too often I find myself putting these things off for weeks at a time, when really, they should be done every day.

I was thinking about this in the car on the way back from explodinglemur's ... and I realized I don't have the first clue how to cultivate self-discipline.

How does one go about this sort of thing?


You'll probably look at me funny when I say this, but I came up with another word for the intimacy I seek. "Family". I'm not talking about the kind of family that involves kids (the biological kind, anyway), or the group of people who happen to have heredity similar to mine.

[Dammit, I just spilled water on my keyboard. Somehow I think I'm going to have to get a new one...]

Edit: Was flipping through fortune cookies, and ran across the following gem:

Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings
infinite distances continue to exist, a wonderful living side by side can
grow up, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it
possible for each to see each other whole against the sky.
		-- Rainer Rilke


Hehe ... I just realized my version of sudo insults you if you mistype your password. This amuses me greatly.
