Every day is a restart

Posted by Jinbo on 5. Aug 2012

Before i start, let me introduce myself
I am just one amongst the other, a normal guy, with dreams, hopes
The name is Jean, it could have been John, Roberto, Mark...

Can someone change?
this question has been on me for a while now, I still didn't figure the answer out yet.

Well this is simple and complicated at the same time. Everday, I wake up and tell myself: "Today you need to change, this is wrong, you're heading for a wall."
Let's just give a couple of examples:
-I've been in China 2 years, my goal when I came here was to speak Chinese after this period. How is my Chinese now? Well, let's just say : Progress have been made but i'm still ages away from fluency.
-I'm fat, well, i'm not fat per say, but i'm not the athletic guy i once was, I know how it happened,(laziness got to me, sports left me), I also know that myself only can change that fact, I applied on a gym (never went there), I tried to start running everyday (i went 2 days in a row then told myself "tomorrow is better"),
-i smoke like hell, i tried to quit around 10 times
-I know that when i get drunk, i'll feel like shit the next morning, still, i get shithead
-I know i should save money, but i just spend it on useless stuff

So here is the situation,
I know my weak points, i know how i could improve them, but I can't make up my mind and actually do it

Can somebody change? Is everyday a restart? Am I just a lazy ass? Have I too much hope for myself?

I write this lines for me, to share, to try to understand

    Stop with being a whiny little bitch and man up...... Sounds rude, but hey.....Change only happens if you WANT it.

    the whiny bitch is the one laying in his misery, changing is improving

    change is not improving by design and default....but anyway, strep 1 is recognition, so that is there, so all the best! Oh, and above comment about strong points, good remark.
