I've done something consistently... for an entire year.
This is possible.
While I'm kicking myself when I'm down; and inner nag is shamelessly shouting a truckload of negative not-niceties... this is a wonderful thing to remember... to stick my head up out of the mire of those bad days... and wave my middle finger and say... "I did it! I did it once, I can do it again!" And like this awesome article at Livestrong says...
Approach this year’s goals with your eyes wide open. Have hope. Be an optimist. And believe that ANYTHING is possible. And then tell yourself that when you get knocked down, you will pick yourself back up.
Every. Single. Time.
Do it for your family. Do it for your friends. Do it for the people you love. And most importantly: Do it for you.
Key Words: Every. Single. Time.
In case I miss that bit.
I thought this quote from the article was insightful, too...
When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe that’s when you’ll achieve your goals.
Here's me... just doing it.
