You Spot It, You Got It | Lift Heavy Run Long

You spot it, you got it.

That’s a known truth.

I hate that. I hate that my character defects can be so glaring, yet I’m always the last to know.

I’m easily irritated. I think that says a lot.

I’m usually irritated at the behavior of others. I think that says even more.

I get frustrated at how quickly people become frustrated…because I am so easily frustrated.

It drives me nuts when people fish for compliments… because I am the Capt Ahab of compliment fishing. **I had to google Capt. Ahab. I originally went with Jacques Cousteu**

Drama? I hate drama…most likely, because I’m an absolute drama queen.

As a pouter, I have no tolerance for pouting.

From my understanding and experience, that’s the way it works. When I am bothered by the behavior of others, it’s usually because it is a reflection of myself in some capacity. I know a phony when I see one, and I know when someone has ulterior motives. This is coming from a guy who has tried to be who I am not, and been a self-seeking snake at numerous periods in my life. What I have found is that I am much more the model to that which I critique and makes me angry, than I am to the contrary.

You spot it, you got it.

I don’t think that this is a “bad” thing. I don’t think that it is necessarily a “good” thing. I think it is an interesting thing, and something that is worthy of attention. I think it’s eye-opening and I think it’s good to be aware of it. It indicates to me that if I am willing to put in the work to make myself a better person, than the world around me will become better for it.

As I roll my eyes, thumb my nose, mumble under my breath, huff with impatience, and gossip about others, it might be worth taking a look at what is broken inside of me.

Be present. Be aware. Be energetic. Be happy.

Peace, Love, and all things Beef related,
