Day 31: No complaints or swearing for 30 Days! – FAIL
Well it’s been 30 Days and I have to admit this experiment was literally a failure from Day 1.
Wishful thinking it’s difficult to break a bad habit, especially losing my shit and swearing. Please take note of the irony of previous sentence.
Stress at work; fights with my fiancee; allowing stupid people to push my buttons. It was moment after another of me turning into the Incredible HULK. I also realized that when I’m around the lads I drop F-bombs and curse as part of my testosterone expression. I’d be cursing just to empathize when a colleague or buddy would be venting or bitching around something to me.
Fuuucckkk…yeah man, that sucks. Fuck it, don’t worry about that kind of donkey shit.
Thinking about how to “succeed” at this challenge I’ve decided a perhaps more productive experiment would be 30 Days of gratitude. Trying to STOP something is MORE difficult than DOING something else in place.
Therefore I’m going to do a VERY simple gratitude entry every day about something I’m grateful in my life. I’ll do my best to make it interesting. Check out 30journey.com to see if I’ll follow through.
For my epic failure I’m donating $30 to PETA. I know I originally said $5 for EVERY VIOLATION…but my Andrew Dice Clay days would make me declare bankruptcy.
Therefore I changed the rules for myself (imagine that) and made it $1 a day that I violated. Yes, a total cop out…but it’s my game dammit!
