She’s been with me a long time. She’s the one who says “I don’t feel like doing X,” “it’s really so much nicer here on the couch,” “we can’t, we’re just not in shape,” “maybe tomorrow,” and so on and on. Often she manifests as a wordless energy of inertia that might not be noticed until it is too late.
I’ve developed many different strategies to bypass her, some more effective than others. None is 100% reliable, so it helps to have many at my fingertips. I’ll be writing about her intermittently and sharing what I’ve discovered.
Meanwhile, here is a photo of of a tree I took on a hike last week. The Slug tried to keep me home, but did not succeed! Sometimes I feel like she has the energy of this granite, and it takes incredible determination to rise above her….so glad I did!
