WOOOOO MONDAY! Who’s excited?!?! My guess is everyone, since today will likely be full of barbecue-ing and beaching and not being at work. #rejoice. But just like Christmas, please for the love of all that is ‘Murica, don’t forget the reason for the season. Remember all of the souls who fought and who continue to fight for complete strangers in the name of liberty. The dedication of their time and their lives can’t go forgotten.
Now, Monday. We can take a second and apply this to Tuesday, too, since Lord knows this Tuesday is bound to feel a bit Monday-ish.
Do you ever wake up feeling like you’re missing the point? You’re working your tail off – even on weekends – and you feel like you’re sitting stagnant, not moving forward as fast as you’d like. You’re chilling in dream limbo, where your dreams are all there in front of your imaginary figment of a treadmill, and you just cannot for the life of you run fast enough to catch them. You feel like you’re going in one place, and it’s driving you bonkers. Why should you be working so dang hard and not reap any rewards? What’s the point? Is it even worth it?
Yes, yes it is.
You know why?
Because whether you realize it or not, you are getting better everyday.
So. What does this mean for you?
It’s as simple as that. Just. Keep. Going. Even when you feel like you’re on that life treadmill – because this whole treadmill thing is lending itself quite well to the message – you’ve gotta remember that treadmills do, in fact, help you go places.They help your heart. They help your legs. They help your whole body feel better, stronger, faster. Because while you seem to be in one place, you’re not – you’re still moving as fast and as long and as far as you wish, depending on how much work you’re willing to put into it.
In life, when you feel like you’re getting no farther than before, no matter how fast the speed or how high the incline you’re working at, take it one step further. Just like you would whether you’re training for a half-marathon, 5K, or to just get a little stronger than before. You just keep going.
This is life.
Just keep going. Because whether you know it or not, you really are getting better everyday.
And you know? You’ll get there.
What goal are you going towards now? What helps you recognize that you’re getting better everyday?
And another question: What’s on the menu today? I’ve simply gotta know. AND, what would you snag with $50 to Target? Gotcha. (;
