Happy New Year.
First Monday of the year, hello 2015.
Hope you all enjoyed your holidays with your loved ones. I sure did.
This year I plan on turning up the intensity to another level.
This weekend during my kickboxing class (finally got into that, super excited) my instructor said something that she might as well screamed directly into my ear: “It’s not what you do when you have energy, it’s how you push through when you get ti(red).”
It spoke volumes to me. One being that I was exhausted and wanted to stop but I pushed through, two it reminded me of all the things I don’t do when I’m ti(red).. Which then trigge(red) passages from the art of war this amazing book about resistance and distractions… And everything connected at that point.
I have to keep my form as straight as possible and connect every shot and jab, I can’t allow my lack of energy be the reason I can’t run on E.. It hit me, if I can give 100% when I’m exhausted, imagine how much more I can give when I’m fully charged and revved up.
I realize and am reminded many things on a daily basis.. I’m fully aware.
Life will drain you. I won’t allow it to keep me down to the point I can’t create or work on anything I choose to.
I’m working though, it finally sunk in what I have been doing wrong, to me… And several conclusions were made which resulted in solutions that I will put into effect, some have already been put in motion.. Very excited.
I’m in a good positive place, although mentally I go back and forth in heated debates often.. Negativity has minimal say.. It’s more constructive criticism, it’s more of just balancing everything out. Looking at both sides and all corners just to ensure that I’m solid.
This is the first quarter, to many, but to me .. It’s the first half.
From here to June. It’s playoff time, giving everything my all and then some making sure I am on point every step of the way, and in the event I stumble, I will have my impeccable balance to keep me from falling.
Happy Monday, happy week, month, year …
Make the most of it for yourself.
