Every time you sit down and write in the morning, you cast a vote for your identity as a writer. Every time you choose a healthy meal over junk food, you cast a vote for your identity as a healthy person. These votes compound over time, put you on the flywheels of actually becoming those things.
— Jack Cheng
This quote struck a cord and I’ve been thinking about what it means to me all day. In this sense I have lost my identity, at some point along the line I stopped casting votes. Is no secret that for the past few months or so, I have been struggling. Struggling to stay positive about my professional life, about both my mental and physical health — mostly my physical health. Instead I have been developing, what I call, comfort habits. Habits that seam to make me “happy” but all they do is making me lazy and not contributing in any way with me trying to be the better version of me.
So, less comfort habits, more votes for my own identity!
