Most of you, I hope, will relate to what I’m about to attempt to explain.
In some way or another, we are all stuck in a rut that we comfortably dug ourselves in and on some level are satisfied with the status quo. Once in a while you come across something amazingly cool and make grand plans on how you can incorporate it into your life, whether it is wanting to play guitar, using a new gadget or follow some new exercise routine. Unfortunately, most of the time we fall off the wagon by getting distracted, “life gets in the way” or some other lame excuse we rationalise. Motivation seeps out and our deeply ingrained habits kick into autopilot, and there we go our merry way in our little ruts. It takes some serious kung-fu-ass-kicking discipline to stick to a new “plan” in order for the new “thing” to come part of our autopilot settings…
No, I didn’t fall off any wagon and am still dead set on my vegetarian journey. Yet, I found myself becoming complacent and questioning why I’m doing it. Every Saturday evening I sense a resistance and slight resentment to the thought of eating vegetarian the following day. Why exactly am I doing this again?
Hah! I found one solution to help with my apathetic attitude; by going back to where it all started – watching documentaries. This time it was Earthlings.
If you want to keep on the straight and narrow, you need to keep reminding yourself. Earthlings did the job. There’s this saying – human stupidity knows no bounds. I’d like to add “cruelty” to that sentence as well. Warning: if you’re planning on watching it, buy plenty of booze to numb yourself in order to sit through the harrowing experience…
