A Ze meme

without comments

Here’s the latest meme from Ze Frank

I use short phrases to combat stagnation and anxiety. The problem is that inspirational phrases too often have short shelf lives. “Celebrate Life” seemed to have an impact on me one night while I lay in bed thinking about how my life is like a washing machine drum, spinning but not moving. I repeated those two words like a mantra for a couple months until they were just two words again.

I know some people don’t motivate themselves like this, but it’s an interesting thought exercise. How do we trick ourselves? and why?
