Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend.
My sister-in-law convinced me to go to a gym class at 6.20am this morning! Her argument was: at least I’d get to go home straight after work and have the satisfaction in knowing that I’ve still worked out. I considered it. The class finishes in enough time for me to go home, get ready (I hate the thought of showering in a public place), and be at work on time. The only sacrifice would be waking up and leaving the comfort of my warm bed and brand new 10.5 tog duvet to get to the class. Thus, it called for an early night.
It must be the craziest thing I’ve ever done (maybe) but, I did it! And I’m proud of myself, but I also felt incredibly sick with limp, wobbly limbs because I didn’t eat beforehand. I don’t know how regular this will become but, now that I’ve accomplished it once, it is possible for me to do it again. We’ll see.
“The pain you have been feeling cannot compare to the joy that is coming.”
One thing that keeps me going when I’m facing difficult moments, is remembering that nothing lasts forever. Every problem has an expiry date. So, although you might not see the light at the end of the tunnel right now, it is there and it is coming.
However, don’t sit back and do nothing. The more you do to overcome that problem, the closer you are to seeing its end. So, hang in there. It will be over soon. And, instead of wallowing in your tears and feeling even worse about yourself, try to think about what you can take away from that problem – something that will mould you into a better person. That obstacle can always provide you with a learning experience. Let that be the good that comes out of it.
As always, have an excellent day.
