I stabbed the avocado pit with a knife.

Removed it surgically.

I smashed the avocado in a fine paste.

Put it on everything.

I powered down my damn phone at 7 pm.

Unplugged the televisions in my home.

Got 8 hours of sleep instead of 6.

I closed my eyes.

Started meditating for about 20 minutes.

I don't use an alarm.

I stop when it feels like 20.

I exercised for 5 minutes instead of doing nothing.

I'm around people I love instead of just tolerate.

I'm not trying to be perfect.

I'm simply doing these things more.

I no longer recognize myself.
