11 Aug This morning I woke up feeling defeated before they day even started
This morning I woke up feeling defeated before they day even started.. I wanted to crawl back under the covers and hide.
Yes I know it’s the weekend but this is what happens when we live in our own heads and take on comparison, overwhelm and trying to “control” it all. And yes, I’m practicing letting go of control daily because control is an illusion. It’s never fully possible to “control” it all.
I overslept (I’m on the east coast and my body still thinks it’s west coast)
My head was spinning with my to do list and what I had not done yet (I know it’s Saturday but have a LOT happening these next two weeks.)
A healthy normal breakfast didn’t happen on track like it normally does (at a hotel)
The “perfect” morning routine I strive for was all thrown off. I had not journaled, mediated or done all the things the gurus tell us we are “supposed” to do daily 😂woops! Ps I do not believe anyone does their “perfect morning routine” every single morning.
So I had a choice.
Put my head back under the covers and feel sorry for myself for what wasn’t happening, who I was not being, what didn’t happen, what I had not created or done and feel sorry for myself that others were ahead of me “crushing life”
Or… decide to pick up from where I was right then and move on and choose to live in what’s possible for “living to to my fullest” today and not stay stuck in was the current reality.
Sooooo I drank a bottle of water.
I had a protein bar instead (not my ideal but better than nothing)
Listened to podcast as I got dressed.
I put my workout clothes on and decided one of my 7 minute Bodyweight express workouts would get the job done (we all have 7 minutes and you can do these too here: http://ftpln.com/nataliejill
And…. I shifted.
I’m ready for the day and a powerful presentation in Toronto!
You are only your current reality if you decide to stay there. You have the power to DECIDE TO SHIFT at anytime.
Strive for present moments and possibility not perfection.
You are NOT too old and it is NOT too late.
