I don’t ever want you to think that my posts are me “preaching”. I don’t claim to have all the answers. I don’t think I am teaching you anything new. In fact it is just the opposite. I have so many questions. I am constantly the student. I am always ready to learn. My life prompts my posts. My day to day observations are what ignites me to think deeper. Everything that I share with you is just me talking through my own journey out loud. It is me “working out” through life’s ups and downs.
In the gym, I work my muscles. In my day to day life I work my mind. In my relationships I work my heart. In my quiet moments, I work my soul. I live by this rule, “If you aren’t working at it then don’t complain when you lose it”. As I have gotten older I can see muscle atrophy quicker when I have had to take time off from the gym due to illness or injury. So I make sure to work out on a regular basis. Throughout the day my mind tends to go to the “dark side” by over analyzing and spiraling into pensiveness. So I make sure to work on letting things go. My heart is forever trying to figure out forgiveness so I am working on allowing time to heal. Lastly, my soul has been injured by me not practicing self-preservation. I am working on protecting myself. It is all a constant obstacle course with mistakes made, lessons learned and growth be had.
I am always working out. Although I am rarely complacent, I am grateful. My posts on Facebook, my newsletters, my workouts are all an on-going journey to be better. I am just lucky to have an audience to share it with. Thank you for reading. If a post resonates with you please “like it”, share it, pass it along and know that it’s all a work in progress.
Do you work out?
