The hardest person to convince will always be yourself. You can say it countlessly; type it, sign it, even smile to indicate just how okay you are. But you will sit with your own thoughts, and they will remind you that coffee is not a miracle drink, and that gym is not heaven. You will loathe every minute of the suspense, the time spent waiting for a simple spark; something to steal you away from the misery. Then they will come, the wonders; thoughts of an awakening, of a new start. These used to excite you, you used to look forward to them. Those pick yourself up and dust it all off with a smile moments. But you’ve done it so many times you’ve sold out the souvenir shirt stand. What do you say to yourself? Does you vocabulary contain those words made to convince? Better yet, are they dressed in the enchanting colours of truth?
