Without going into the boring details, all of my life I’ve created situations for myself in which I counterbalanced success with failure, and vice versa. Just one example would be a hard-drinking punk rocker in high school who also held a job and was in the honor society.
Today I was thinking about not drinking at this stage of my life and realized that this decision also goes against the grain of what my acquaintances and business associates do. Alcohol is so ingrained in my social and business circles that abstinence is a new form of rebellion.
And that gives me comfort and resolve.
Not sure if any of you will relate, but that is my deep thought for the day. 😉
