Happiest Thursday to you! I saw this quote on Twitter, “We can always quit, why start now?”It made me take a step back and reflect on decisions I’m currently facing in my own life. I gotta be honest….I’m TIRED. Work is demanding. Traveling is draining. In addition to that, the effort it takes to plan my workouts, blog, volunteer and consciously spend time with the people I love, leaves me with very little in my “Energy Budget” at the end of each day. BUT I’m happy to say that even though it seems like I’m “running on empty” at least I’m still running. And that, my friends, is a blessing!
So, I write this blog post for both selfish and selfless reasons:
Hope you guys had a very happy Easter weekend. What a wonderful holiday – I’m always encouraged after Easter because it reminds me that ALL things are possible with God. If death can be conquered, then I know I can certainly conquer my goals or any obstacles in my life.
As I was sitting here in my room preparing for my work week and planning the workouts I want to post, I had an urge to change it up and to just share some good old-fashion encouragement with you instead. It that alright?
So here it goes…
Be encouraged this week! You may feel like giving up, you may feel hopeless, you may feel like you’ve been working your butt off and nothing is paying off. But guess what? It’s not over for you or for me. We got gotta hang in there and keep pushing! We are closer than we think we are. Be strong this week. Work harder than you’ve ever worked before. Be more kind and more forgiving to others than you’ve ever been before. Today is a new day and you are almost there. Be ENCOURAGED and NEVER EVER QUIT. You got this! You’re stronger than you think you are #GRIT
