FIGHTING THE FUNK

Fighting the Funk – Something Scary

2 Comments 869 views

OK, This Fighting the Funk Series is EXACTLY what the doctor ordered. I am starting to feel fabulous again! I am really getting a renewed sense of motivation.

I got an email from an online friend of mine that said…

DO ONE THING THAT SCARES YOU EVERY DAY.

I think Eleanor Roosevelt said it and it’s genius (of course)!

If I sit back and think about it, I do do things that scare me every day!

Let’s see…. I walked into Weight Watchers, started running, took a spinning class, tried mangosteen (have you seen that scary fruit), climbed the wall, write/wrote this blog, walked into the free weight room, quite my job, embarked on the cook book adventure, I really could go on and on. Some of these decisions scared the $hit out of me! But I did them!

So when I read her email it clicked. I just need to scare myself today! What a GREAT idea! That’ll pull me out of the funk!

I’ve been considering redesigning WeightWatchen for sometime. I feel as though I’m growing out of it. The server is slow, the navigation doesn’t meet my needs as much. I have a lot of ideas but, honestly, I’ve been too scared to make a change. This site is comforting, I know the system, I’m in a flow and change is scary.

BUT

New could be fun too! It’s exciting, it’s a fresh start, a chance to begin again. These things are all motivating for me. So I took the leap and started designing today, I can’t promise when I’ll be ready to launch the new digs, but as always I’ll keep you posted!

Thanks MizFit for giving me a little shove today.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I had to use that quote to motivate my daughter to go down a water slide – and she LOVED it.

    Thanks for this series – I need it too!
