We all have that moment where you just don’t know what to do anymore. Today I have that moment. I had my weekend off and I really did not do much. I deep cleaned the whole house and just relaxed for the rest of the night.
As you remember from my last blog, I ran on Friday and my boyfriend is so happy that I did. On Saturday he told me to prepare my mind as we are going for a run on Monday. I told him okay, I’m ready. I did prepare my mind and body throughout the weekend. I slept early on Sunday so I can wake up at 5:30 am the next day.
The next day comes and mother nature had some other plan, it’s pouring rain and the thunderstorm warning is on. My boyfriend woke me up before my alarm and told me that it’s raining and we’re not going to run. He left and told me to sleep more instead.
Believe it or not, I was actually looking forward to going for a run today. I know, it’s hard to believe, but I actually liked the feeling after running. You feel sore everywhere, I couldn’t even bend down the next day. The stairs to our house are even harder to climb as is. But it feels good, my back was hurting but a little heat pad fixed it. I especially love that my abs were sore, they still are and I’m loving it. I might actually have abs if I continue running! Not sure if that is the case but I’m trying to run regularly first then incorporate some other exercises.
I’m not running just to keep my body look good but I’m doing it to feel good about myself that I’m overcoming something that I absolutely hated doing before. It feels good that I’m believing in myself more. I can do so much more and if I don’t quit once it gets tough, once I feel pain, once I get tired. I’m learning how to believe in myself more and gaining confidence in myself. I believe that we can do anything if we put our minds to it.
If you are someone who’s been wanting to do something they are not comfortable with and have not even tried doing it, give it a try before quitting. Someone who believed in me before, more than I believed in myself, told me to not leave any stone unturned. Grab every opportunity, and try it for yourself. If you decided that it’s not for you, then fine, move to the next stone, at least you tried. That’s the most important thing.
Get out there and try something new.
