Today has been an interesting day, and it's only 10 o'clock! First of all, it was a momentous day as it was the first day I had decided to get back to the gym after an illness that started this summer. I know, I know, it doesn't sound like much but here goes! Because I've been alternately dreading this and looking forward to it at the same time; let me explain: There has been moments in the last several months, where I've really wanted to quit. I've really wanted to hide under the covers. Times where I've REALLY, like REALLY wanted to sleep, like forever. Times where I've had zero energy and couldn't imagine going back to doing the things I loved. Times when I felt so low and alone and lost that it was hard to put one foot in front of the other. Yesterday was one of those days. I was sitting at my desk when boom, the dam broke.
So I prayed. I prayed hard with intention. I asked for direction and guidance, but most of all, for the courage to keep going. AND, drumroll please, last night when I awoke around 1:20am, the message appeared: "Time to get moving." I saw an image of myself at the gym, rebuilding my life. You see, I figured that the "old me", the one that left with the illness was done but I was still living that energy. It was time for me to REBUILD.
I'll be honest, I was very daunted at the prospect of hauling my ass to the gym with hardly any energy or confidence, but I went anyways and did what I could; it's a start anyway.
Life always goes in cycles, sometimes you're at the top of the staircase and things are amazing, and sometimes you're starting from scratch on a new chapter. And that's ok, there's always room to create and expand into a beautiful, new side of YOU.
Even if it's in baby-steps... Sending you love and encouragement if you find yourself a little low. You aren't alone.
