It's Monday! Third week of the new year, time where many slowly lose their motivation to fulfill their New Years resolution. So in efforts, I thought I'd share what motivates me when there are more negative thoughts trying to take over, when I'm exhausted from a long day, debating on completing that last rep as my muscles are begging for a break, or I question why dedication. My answer- JESUS To know He went through so much pain as He hung on the cross just so we have a home with God, something we never deserved. The pain of that last rep is nothing in comparison to what He experienced. When I'm exhausted I remember how Jesus never gave up on us no matter how many times we may have given up on Him. When I have negative thoughts in my head I remember His commitment to us and how with Him, anything is possible. I worship God through my workouts and use Him as my motivator. what motivates you?
20-miler complete!!! What we won't talk about is how long it took me while taking phone calls, texts and messages. And with the rest stops at 3 parks, Walgreens and a 7-11. Oh, and stretching my IT band every mile.
But what we will talk about is the mind and the will and their ability to overcome many physical and environmental obstacles. Sometimes we set our goals too low for fear of failure, and don't give ourselves a chance to live at our true ability. I set my goals pretty high, but even if I fail...I know I grew during the process!
Oh! And lash extensions! They are God's gift to blondes with blonde, short lashes! Just saying...I would have black stinging eyes without them! ;)
