Day 12: Cold Water Therapy

So cold water just isn’t as difficult to expose yourself to after you’ve been outside working in the yard. On the other hand, I did find my faucet will go colder – so I guess I’ve been cheating myself in the mornings I get up – yeah I slept in this morning and then I got busy with being a dad before I went out and mowed the lawn and then took a cold shower. But I did it.

I’ve started seeing my desires as separate from myself. I’ll take my desire for sex as a for instance – yeah a big part of being a man is simply wanting sex. Deep down, it’s our core biological desire to spread our seed. But I’ve been seeing it as a desire and not a need – it’s the same with other desires like alcohol and caffeine.

How much of our desire do we allow to shape our identity?
