Is it just me, or does time seem to move faster as you get older?
I don’t know about you, but it feels like I just wrote “Happy New Year” to you. And now? I’m finding it hard to believe we’re almost through the month of January already.
Anyways, welcome back to another edition of Find The Good Friday, a weekly newsletter where we share helpful resources, one inspiring quote, one quick tip, and one find the good story to help you find the good this upcoming week.
Our goal is to help you get through the good and the bad days, the ups and the downs, and anything else that stands between you and a smile on your face.
This week's focus: Stop it with the self-sabotage.
Let’s get to it!

This Week's Lesson
Staying up late watching Netflix. Binge-eating junk food when you know you shouldn’t. Procrastinating on the tasks you need to do that are staring you straight in the face.
Self-sabotage… we’re all guilty of it. And we’ve all been there (probably more times than we’d like to admit).
Truth is, we all know what we should be doing on a daily basis. But sometimes self-sabotage gets in the way and we don’t follow through on the promises we make to ourselves. We say things like “Oh, I’ll do that tomorrow” or “Just one more episode.”
While I’m still guilty of these things from time to time, I recently read a quote that completely changed my perspective. And it went like this:
“Don’t stay up late for something you wouldn’t wake up early for.”
I don’t know about you, but I sure wouldn’t wake up early to watch Netflix or scroll on TikTok (no judgement if you do!).
So the next time you think about watching just one more episode or spending just a few more minutes scrolling on your phone, ask yourself if you’d wake up early for it. Chances are… you probably wouldn’t.
Find the good by doing what you know is good for you.
This Week's Find The Good Story
“At the start of the year, I experienced a back injury during work. For six months, I was put through the worst doctor loop imaginable, from X-rays to MRI's and even physical therapy. I was cleared by one doctor for work and within just a few days, I was terminated from my job.
It’s been several months now since I’ve been unemployed, and I’m trying to make life work, especially as the holidays approach. I'm a videographer and photographer by trade, so I try and make it out to enjoy my passion whenever I can. That's where I find the good. Photography and videography clear my mind, calm my soul, and help eliminate my anxieties. I find the good in creating media and following my passions!”
