Run the day. Don’t let the day run you.

N.B. I’m currently not in the best of places mentally and find myself stuck in familiar negative (read: destructive) behavioural patterns. I’m also finding it tough to get out of this rut.

This is nothing new and I need not call an ambulance: I’ve walked this road multiple times before.

What’s different now is that for the first time (after a 6-year journey) I finally know myself.

Knowing yourself can be scary.

I know my strengths, vices, abilities, principles, and values.

Knowing yourself can be liberating.

I know who I am…but what I can do?

That remains to be seen, as always. The story’s the same; much work remains to be done.

Nothing’s changed from your Google Keep entries.

Karan, read this when all hope seems lost. And remember: he who has a why can bear any how.

The fighter’s manifesto

You have to find what’s yours in life.

Create a plan that works for you and not against you.

No matter where you are or what lies ahead, find a way to keep moving forward.

Take every step with intention, directed toward the goal.

When you get knocked down and everything feels out of your control, find a way to win the fight.

If you don’t fight for what you love, don’t cry for what you lost.

Quit the excuses. No one cares.

Run the day.

Don’t let the day run you.

Find. A. Way.
