in retrospect one of the most important things i ever learned was that if you floss and your gums bleed, it's not a sign that you're flossing too hard or that you should stop flossing. it's a sign that you waited too long, but it's a good thing you're doing it now.
it was very important because these days i've found myself thinking about a lot of things in life this way.
when i wake up in the morning & want to work on a game but my body aches a little, it's tempting to figure out how to use my body less all day in order to make it not ache but usually it's a sign that i'm using my body too little, that i've waited too long between moments of bodily activity. it's a sign that i waited too long, but it can only be a good thing to do some now.
