A dear friend of mine recently was searching for a new race to enter in her epic racing journey and her dad told her how about joining the human race? I still laugh about this until today...I don't know why I find it so funny but I do.
Maybe because I have been forced to slowed down and join the human race, in one sense I am and in another I have retreated from it. Staying at home verse working all the time is definitely different but a welcome change. I am enjoying activities again I haven't for a very long time. Cooking, baking and just being at home. All these skills I have learnt from my mom and if I toot my own horn I think I'm a pretty decent cook because I was taught by the best!
As well today is a special day! I get to celebrate a birthday with my mom and one we never thought we would see together. She made it another year although by the skin of her teeth it is still another year. This is where I struggle with people who don't want to age when others are dying to want to age. Take the gift and use it!
Right now, today what are you going to commit to in the next year? What can you start today? What are you capable of in a year? You may surprise yourself if you dream big, but you will once again disappoint yourself if you dream and fail to plan.
Fail to plan then plan to fail! It's pretty simple. Just put one foot in front of the other and be consistent. You can't run a marathon by training all your mileage two weeks before. Somethings are earned for a reason, repetition makes perfect or at least do-able!
I am in limbo a bit right now but I will find a run or journey for next year and it won't usually fall in my lap, I start to research online where to go or what to do! For now my focus will be fitness verses craziness. Running, lifting or any type of exertion really calms me and releases whatever I need out of my body that may harm me. On the flip side I am starting to enjoy the slow arts such as yoga etc. but I still crave that sweat dripping shaking feeling of hard workouts! But a little yin and yang is what creates balance in life.
Email me your goals for the 2013 season of your life! I can't wait to hear the epic journeys and maybe you will inspire me for one of my own! Info@ilivelifenow.com
Saying it out loud and sharing it is far more powerful that just thinking it! Own it, say it and do it! And please avoid the dreaded January New Year's Resolution...it really isn't all it's cracked up to be. Change can happen NOW!
