We have each chosen to form our own path in life that we wish to follow and come out the other end as the person we intend to be. We have taken our own machetes and cut through the road blocks. The problem is if all we do is cut the tips of the branches, they will always grow back. We need to gain the energy to pick the overgrowth from the roots and completely eliminate it all together.
There are points in every ones lives where their problems become a distraction from the goals they want to meet. It is hard to completely eliminate factors that effect us. Some things just do not go away. What you can do though is try to eliminate the little things that bring you down and stray you from that path you have created. It’s not easy but it’s worth a try, right?
I’ve let myself become so distracted by the tiny things that I’ve lost sight of my overall goals. Between my fitness to my career. This year I have tried to get myself back on track. So far I am doing okay but I am not fully where I want to be.
So far this year, I have finally(after two years of paid education) changed my major and chosen a career that I know I can make a difference with. Now my cluttered mind has a focus, something I really want to do. I’ve also managed to lose those six pounds I put on last year after stopping the gym. I am still not proud of myself for losing motivation for the gym, I honestly think it was more about me wanting to spend my time on other things, like a new relationship.
Here are my goals, and my determination to achieve them at this moment is higher then ever. First, re-tone my body. I lost over twenty pounds for what, to just give up? I don’t think so. I’ve been running again but that isn’t enough. Back to the gym I go. My next goal is to go all out on finding a new job. This is essential. I need to get out of my comfort zone and just do it. Last big goal is, buckle down on school. If I want to go through the masters program I need to get focused now.
So the last thing is this… anyone down to hit the gym?
