*Just Begin*

Thursday, February 07, 2013

I'm feeling really good about this week after successfully completing the "exercise for 15 minutes before snacking" challenge.

Today I've been thinking a lot about this phrase "JUST BEGIN".

I don't always follow this phrase. Far from it, in fact. The Garfield-lover in me loves the phrase "Why begin today what you can put off until tomorrow?"

These two words, though, "Just Begin", are packed with power. How many times have these words gotten me off my tail? Plenty. It could be anything from starting a workout to cleaning the house. I often get bogged down by a feeling of frustration because some things just feel "too monumental".

So I'm challenging myself this week to take notice of all the times when these two words could be applied and how well it worked out for me.

The possibilities are endless:

*Getting in all my veggies
*Getting up a little earlier
*Cleaning the house
*Starting my taxes

Looking forward to the week and its possibilities!
