An Uncomfortable Truth

Tonight, I finally accepted something about myself that I’ve been needing to for a while. I have to lean into the darkness to get fit.

For the past couple of years, I’ve worked hard on becoming something I’m not; a positive, happy go lucky person. I do my best to surround myself with positive energy, people, and media in an attempt to keep the negativity away. But tonight, as I reflected on my lack of initiative for getting fit, I realized where the problem was. I wasn’t allowing the other part of me to come out.

The pissed off Brandon is the Brandon I need. The guy who is fed up with the world, angry at humanity, and irritated with the unfairness of life. This is the guy who loves to get down in the dirt and get things done. The guy who knows no help is coming and it’s up to him to get shit done. This is the Brandon I need to release in order to accomplish my goals.

Originally, my header image was that of Superman, a hero I try to be more like each and everyday. But once I realized what I needed to do, I replaced the image with Daredevil, someone a bit more relatable in this situation.

It’s not much, but this is just another babystep in the right direction. I’ve spent the past hour researching punching bags and exercise equipment. The time is coming…
