10 Mar Just START!
Hi Zoom! I cannot remember the last time that I wrote a blog entry, either for myself or for another purpose. To be honest, I actually researched the word to figure out where to begin. Then I thought to myself, that is what I have always struggled with; starting. I think we have all sat down to write a paper, email, or even a greeting card and thought; what do I say first? It’s the opening, the first thing that grabs people’s attention and you are always reminded that you can either move them or lose them with those first few sentences; so make it count. And, that is a lot of pressure that we continue to put on ourselves in every aspect of our life.
It is a learned habit that we carry with us. We are always scared of the beginning, of starting. I have not always been “into fitness”, I’ve had several set backs in my life and it seems to always come back to “starting over”. But, maybe it is not about “starting over”, because, if you think about it – we started long ago. It is about getting back up, dusting ourselves off, and continuing on. It is about knowing that we are going to fail and that is okay. When we do fail, and we will, it is not how we fail, but how we recover. It is about remembering it is okay to edit, it is okay to change–remember, the story is never finished and YOU decide the ending.
