It really did. I had personal things going on and I ALLOWED it to take my strength for a minute. But first I need to rewind from the beginning, usually after I do my my feline and canine chores in the AM I workout. Monday I decided to take care of a continuous pending issue which is personal and a different response from several people. I was about to explode and took a deep breathe, muttered a few quick prayers for strength and guidance. Did it get resolved, NOPE, but I will follow up in a few days.
With this, my energy was drained and I should have taken a few minutes to regroup but I did my set up, weights, workout mat and tuned into DAY 29 of my 100 days of workout. To begin I was not focused and almost stopped because my heart just was not in it. I paused my workout, took a deep breathe and did a mental conversation with myself. Allowing my strength, focus and energy to be taken away was a NO NO. Life is not always perfect but its how you handle it that matters. Staying focus and not losing sight of my goals is important because I know from experience if I do so without what I consider “ just cause” I’ll keep it up for a minute. That minute is not 60 seconds it could be days or weeks.
I prayed again, regrouped and gave my workout 100% of me. I must say I was proud. By the way I know that everyone is not a playful person I respect that, just respect that I am also I pray daily not only when situations arise; sometimes and some days I have to pray more.
To everyone I say, “stay focused on your goals be it a workout, life change, or empowering yourself for your greatness” Don’t allow situations to steal your focus, it’s life. Re-evaluate the situation, realign your focus and keep it moving, YOUR GOAL AWAITS
