We always hear about how Suzie Sunshine found an extra 1000 hours in her day to run 50 miles a week and has it all tracked in her app – but what about the rest of us? How exactly are we supposed to find time to fit in a productive workout in our already busy lives? Yes, it is possible to wake up early and hit the gym or morning run before work, but most of us want that hour of sleep or we are using that hour to get our family ready for their day. What are some realistic ways to fit in proper fitness through our days?
Life goes by so quick to that we often forget to take a moment for ourselves. This goes beyond wanting time for a glass of wine. We stand in front of the mirror and think, “I wish I had a better ___.” “I wish I could ____.” The list is endless. We often wish, hope, and pray for a better version of ourselves, our lives, our partners – anything to dull the pain, curb the addictions, subdue the tears. We may be surrounded by negative people, toxic relationships, or a toxic mindset. It’s time to break the cycles we find ourselves in.
You are worth it, and there are people who care and will support you. You are the first step in the process. Do not be discouraged by obstacles of any kind. You are a lot stronger than you think.
Let today be the first day you start over. Remind yourself every day that you are worthy. You are favored. You are loved. You will succeed. Print that out and place it on all your mirrors if you have to. Let’s work harder to spread love and peace than division and hatred.
Each generation has similar complaints when it comes to dating and relationships – the main question usually is, “Why is itso hard to find someone?” Where are the men and women of quality? How exactly can we weed through this mass of nonsense? The endless text/pen pals, the barrage of married people lying about their situations, then want you to just be understandingand wait for them, to people who seem to be floating around from situation to situation waiting for something to happen to them. Some blame technology, but what about 100 years ago when they barely had telephones? They encountered the same issues – even 1000 years ago. The only difference between then and now is in some cases now women are considered almost a person and not really property.
There is always the mantra of picking ourselves up after the dust has settled, in an effort to coax us into getting over difficulties easier. What if the dust never really settles, as you are constantly reminded of the past, therefore you can never really let go? Some cultures believe that we never really leave things behind, they are always a part of us – even the Bible reminds us of that as well in various contexts. We may be forgiven of the sin, but still carry the weight and memory of it – lest temptation reigns supreme and we are back down that hole. But what about when we have to say, “It’s finally time to move on.” Where does that now lead us to move on to? Another person? Another town? Another memory? A lot of us may move on, but we may move on to the same issues packaged in a different environment or person.
