The plans, the promises, the proclamations. I honestly believe in them…at the time. I am quick to jump on passing bandwagons, with every intention of remaining seated until the ride comes to a full and complete stop. However, I have a history of falling off said bandwagons the minute they hit a bumpy patch of terrain.
Here are few of my plethora of passionate initiatives that have hit the bricks:
Karma Cleanse I stuck with it for awhile. I did. And most days I strive to keep it alive, but there are days, man are there days, when I soak up catty gossip like a bun to gravy. Mmmm, gravy.
Mandate to Hydrate I know how important water is — for my health, for my skin, for energy, for weight control. So why don’t I drink more? Last week I downloaded an app called ‘Drink Right’ that actually beeps and tells me how much to drink and when. Hopefully this will help me bathe my insides with H2O.
Lisa Leftover Quest for Balance This epiphany seemed to fall on deaf ears. MY deaf ears. I really need to learn to listen better.
Making myself unavailable Ya, that lasted about two days. I’m about as unavailable as a New York call girl. I’m not sure how I can kick this one. Outside of wrapping my house in tin foil to reflect incoming signals, I fear I’ll continue to struggle with this.
Kick the Chip We all know that potato chips are laced with crack. It’s why they are so addictive. Plus, they are so damn tasty. I don’t have high hopes for this latest bandwagon excursion. I’m already imagining wheels made from Pringle can lids and a wagon lined with Hickory Stick straw…
Alas, I’m trying. I want to be a better person. For my kids, and for myself. We only get one shot at this thing and it’s important to at least try…even if we do fall off the occasional bandwagon after swooning from dehydration and choking on a Dorito.
