The Crow Of Destiny...
...it FLEW at my head, scaring the crap out of me and ominously barked out a warning..... Funny story..
Took a walk yesterday
In my favourite park near my house
LOVE listening to the birds
Sitting in the cool Japanese Garden section
...and just relaxing for 20 mins or so every day
^^ really important to do for stress levels by the way!
Yesterday was WAY different
A crow was perched in a tree
I walked past
And it crawed, barked, chirped
- or whatever the hell it's called when a crow makes a crow noise -
And I think nothing of it
Just carry on my chilled out walk
Then the crow appears again and aggressively calls out again
I look up
It flares it's wings and starts banging it's beak on the tree
* click * click * click *
A little bit freaky as pretty sure a Crow is a BAD omen...
It was going so mad at me I try and take a photo on my phone
Damn thing runs out of battery!
So I again, think nothing of it and walk off
Crow appears once more
Again I walk off
It swoops down towards me as I walk away
and I'm pretty scared of birds
I can't even walk past the geese next to the local canal!
And this thing DIVEBOMBS me then flies back up to it's tree
So needless to say I am terrified
I poop myself
and left the park double time!
Funny thing is
it got me thinking
About omens, signs, superstitions
Whatever you wanna call it
Aren't these just ways we try to explain LIFE to ourselves?
Especially when things are UNCERTAIN
Where there is uncertainty there is fear
Not sure if you're losing weight at the moment?
You're scared/worried about it
Not sure if you're getting stronger and fitter?
You're scared/worried about it
So you start making up signs and omens of progress
> The dreaded scales
> Your partners comments
> The size of your clothes
But you forget that
> the scales measures muscle, water, undigested food AND body fat, it's unreliable
> others comments only reflect opinion, not fact
>the size of clothes differs greatly depending on garments, manufacturers and, for example with jeans, whether they're worn-in or freshly cleaned So today's lesson: Stop looking for signs, omens and those 'black crows'
Start looking for ways to measure your success and KNOW for certain you're making progress
Then you'll be confident
Then you'll feel like every day you're making a change
Then motivation and drive comes EASY
