Guts

Classification

The first step to achieving one's goals is to understand this:

There are things that I honestly want, things that I think I should want, and things that I tell myself I want, but don't really, and things that aren't important at all.

Learning to classify these things can be a challenge, but it's important to be able to make the distinction. The tricky one is the third one. I have talked myself into wanting stuff before that I knew was a bad idea going in. Now I'm trusting my judgement, because it's mine, and I'm owning my mistakes, because those are mine, too. And with that, I'm closing the book, not unkindly, on an unfortunate relationship from a couple of years ago. It happened, and it shouldn't have done. Not accepting that has just made it harder to heal.

Cryptic, no? Don't worry folks: it makes sense to me.

Having said all that, I am 99 percent sure that I honestly and truly want a DanElectro Tape Echo stompbox.
