Do any of us listen very well, even to ourselves. I am beginning to grasp that I don't listen to myself very well. Perhaps I am too optimistic. I seem to ignore what my body is telling me. It hurts. Maybe it does need attention. I put something off perhaps because I don't want to do it and maybe there is a good reason I don't. I finally convinced myself to give up on a book if I am not enjoying it. Why should I finish it? I think I always held out hope it would somehow turn out good. How many times did it? Any? It's hard to cut ties and let go on something, even as simple as a book your not enjoying.
