Power of the Will

Isn’t willpower a strange thing? Sometimes just getting out of bed feels literally impossible. No matter how many times you tell yourself that on the count of ten you’ll get up, you still end up lying there for another minute, or two, or sixty. Then again, sometimes doing something like a physical workout takes no willpower at all and you just go and do it and deal with it and get it over with.

If only we knew how to turn our willpower on and off to suit our needs. If only we could keep our wills strong when we’re trying to outlast someone in an argument and stand up for ourselves. If only we could give up our stupid stuborn wills when we know we’re wrong about something.

Oh wait. We can. Willpowers ARE under our control in the end. Dang, there go all my excuses for doing/not doing things.

  1. Lol… Yeah. Willpower is incredible… helps to stop smoking, eat right… all those good things. I have a solution though to get out of bed… Get a puppy! lol. They don’t let you sleep. EVER! Grin. Just kidding… If our willpower was infallible, then we wouldn’t be human. We wouldn’t make mistakes and we wouldn’t be the people we are today… so… willpower, or the lack of it, can sometimes be a good thing πŸ™‚ And sometimes, you are allowed those extra minutes, to just lie back and stare at the ceiling… loving it! πŸ™‚

    I guess a dream or something really strong in our heart could make us wake up straight, and maybe without alarm-clock. But I particularly understand those mornings we’d like to remain in lazy minutes, pretending we could hedge willpower…
    :>) Thank you.
