My motivation is missing and the search is on........
I swear I left it right here......it never left my side. I have no idea how something so magnificent and hard to miss could've been lost.
It was with me always about a year ago. Anytime I would eat, or exercise, or shop, it was right there by my side.
Then one day, it slipped its leash and I haven't seen it since. I miss it and would love to have it returned.
If you have found it, would you please let me know ASAP. I really would love to have my motivation back. I kinda need it.
For those who are not sure if they have seen it or not, here is a description of my motivation:
Big......I mean gargantuan. It was so big it convinced me to lose over 65 pounds. It would talk me into all sorts of crazy stuff -- Zumba classes, Kettlebells, staying on the elliptical even when I really really really wanted to get off, eating what I knew I should and how much I should, and talking me into trying on that shirt or those shorts or that dress and not feeling bad if it was a little tight. I loved the way it would say in my ear "just a little more...... just a little longer". It was pretty convincing.
Loud... "right in my ear and into my head" loud! Thing was, it wasn't an unpleasant noise; it was actually quite soothing and normal after a while. I liked the sound of my motivation.
Loyal... I could count on my motivation when the going got tough.
I guess work and life and other distractions caused me to begin ignoring it. I am sure it felt pretty bad when I no longer chose to listen. I might run away too if I thought nobody heard me.
I am ready to start listening again. So if somebody finds it, please let it know I am still here..... I will be so much more attentive this time.
