The First Step of Anything Is Always the Hardest

In a cold shower, the first plunge is always the hardest. But after that, your body will slowly adapt to the cold and you'll feel much better in the end.

It's the same with anything. The first step is always the hardest. But once you've taken it, you'll find the next few steps to be a little bit easier. And after a dozen or so steps, you might find yourself in a groove and let the momentum carry you forward.

Today is one such day for me. After years of wearing these beautiful and luxurious golden handcuffs, I've finally decided to take them off in favor of letting my wrist heal. As you all know, wearing handcuffs for a prolonged period isn't good for your wrist and may cause wrist injuries in the long run.

So my advice to all you fellow golden handcuff lovers is to take them off every once in a while. At the very least, remember to take care of your wrist. No matter how amazing your golden handcuffs are, it's not worth ruining your wrists.

Erm, anyway. It's been more than a year since I last posted anything here, so for today, I'm jumping straight into the cold freezing water with the hopes that I'll get used to it again.

Oh, you might have also noticed something different about this site. The truth is, I'm experimenting with a new layout after migrating away from WordPress, so there are probably quite a few loose ends I've yet to tie.
