Don’t Forget to Breathe.

It’s a new month. It’s a new day. I’m awake but I’m not so awake. I’m physically awake but in my spirit I feel tired or as if the energy isn’t evenly dispersed throughout my body. My mind is lagging and I don’t even have the energy to pull myself together.
But you know what? I’m going to take it easy. I can be hard on myself for even the smallest things; I am my biggest critic. I have been exposed to and have exposed myself to many new things recently via listening to music, participating in conversations, taking note of TED talks (yes I do take notes from some of them), and many other streams. Now these haven’t been necessarily negative inputs. I’m not drained because of negative energy I let into my space. It’s more of a weight or overwhelming feeling of so many things I have in mind to accomplish but not knowing where to start, not having the means to start at the moment, or simply overthinking these things.
Don’t get me wrong. It is exciting though. I’ve knocked some things out. I am in the process of working on others that I feel I can tackle at the moment. Most importantly, I’m continuing my great fitness lifestyle but this month, I’m taking it to the next level with the intensity, consistency, and accountability. Stay tuned for that. 🙂
Basically, that’s me. Many thoughts, flowing ideas, trying to get my life aligned (as much as is possible for maintaining my sanity, but not too much because adventure makes the story more worth it).
Week Motivation:
Go easy on yourself.
Breathe.
Really, actually pause and remind yourself to breathe.
That breath right there is a precious gift.
Now take it one breath and one step at a time.
You’ve come this far and you can go much further.
