Inertia

Not to go all nerdy on you all but I’m sure you all know Newton’s 1st law of motion or Law of Inertia.

An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

This law is not only true in physics but it holds true for our thoughts and actions as well. The hardest thing to do is change what you have been doing all this while. It takes effort.It takes an X amount of force or willpower to get you to move or change your current state. Be it, mind, body or soul.

The hardest thing to do is close the YouTube tab after spiraling down the YouTube black hole. Cos the Law of Inertia dictates that you will stay the same unless you can muster the force to act against it.

The more I think about it, this law applies to all aspects of life. How most people would prefer to let inertia take over and stay in the same job they hate, or bad relationship cos it’s so much easier to let it stay the same. Inertia is comfortable. Mustering the force to change, is not.

However, we must realize that Inertia is the enemy of progress. Enemy of change. And no matter how comfortable, Inertia will ruin our lives. Reckoning the force to change, no matter how hard or uncomfortable, is worth every bit the effort.
