Pushing Past the Wall...

Thursday, March 15, 2012

I woke up this morning feeling inspired and free. I think it started on yesterday. I have been working my butt off for over a year now and my body and my mind are renewed/changed for the better. I have been doing my own thing at the Y and working out at home alone. I have been inviting my daughter to walk with me for so long. She has been overwhelmed with work (she's a night shifter) and what to do next in life (like the average 20 something year old). YESTERDAY SHE FINALLY WALKED WITH ME. IT WAS A WONDERFUL MOMENT FOR THE BOTH OF US. I watched my girl struggle as we walked the neighborhood but she did not give up. She kept on going. I kept telling her how proud I am of her. She has picked up some extra weight since she stopped going to college. As we walked I reminded her that she DESERVED to give this time to herself! I reminded her that these walks and workouts that I do, not only energize and improve the body and self image, but it SETS THE SPIRIT FREE....LITERALLY! It is a wonderful thing when you finally come to realize that until you take care of YOURSELF...your are simply NOT your best (you can't be) for anyone else. Self Love...The most powerful thing you can possess! I am a leader and not a follower. I am taking care of myself and NOW I am believable. I can TRULY INSPIRE OTHERS.... emoticon
