What About The Positive?

For many years I was a  glass half empty kind of person ( I still have my days). But, lately I have been tying to focus on the positive side of things. I know, I know it’s easy to say but what else can we do? Life always throws challenges and at times we go through things that can cause us frustration, but if we only focus on the negative then we will never get over the hump.

At one point I was really focused on being a runner. I really wanted to run that marathon and say I had completed such a huge accomplishment ( I tend to make crazy goals sometimes) . Then I hurt my knee and could’nt excercise at all for like a month. This drove me insane. Once I could excercise I had to smooth into it slowly and that made me even more frustrated cause I was used to the intense forms of excerise.

However, one day as I sat in a painful stooper on my bed my mom gave me a a good talking to. You know those talks moms give to smack sense into you. She said “why don’t you focus on what you can do and then try to accomplish those goals when you actually can. Take care of your body, it’s the only one you have.”

Wow that hit me like a ton of bricks. SO I beganto focus on the things I could do. That’s how I found and fell in love with Spinning. I could actually do it and not be in pain, but I had always thought is was a wimpy kind of excercise cause it was a group class. I WAS  WRONG.  Now I actually love it.

So I learned to focus on the positive and what I could do in every part of my life. Like I said I have my days, but it puts everything else into perspective. If you can only walk then walk, if you can only do 20 mins then do 20 mins., or if it is that goal you haven’t achieved but are putting the effort to achive then focus on what you have already achieved. Enjoy the journey!

Stay Happy!
