Uposatha Confession

Not more than an hour after my last post where I heroically declared my intentions I ended up taking a short nap and then broke my fast with food. It almost seems that the more important the occasion, the more likely I am to mess it up. And mess it up I did.

The morning after had not been much better as I slept in and only hit about twenty five minutes so far. So, by the standards of the truly heroic strivers I’m falling all over myself in failure but there is this: I’m not giving up and until I do I haven’t lost. I need to be more sensitive to my body and mind to read the signals it’s sending about how much I can handle and when I can push. Last night I shouldn’t have been so hard on myself but lesson learned.
