This morning I completed an exercise I couldn’t do just 2-3 months ago. It’s called Toes to Bar. Here’s what it looks like. (Note: found this on YouTube and now I’m mad I didn’t get my trainer to film me!)
I could only do 2-3 at a time but again, these were not possible the last time I tried. I could barely get my knees to my elbows!
“We’ve all heard about people who’ve exploded beyond the limitations of their conditions to become examples of the unlimited power of the human spirit.
You and I can make our lives one of these legendary inspirations, as well, simply by having courage and the awareness that we can control whatever happens in our lives. Although we cannot always control the events in our lives, we can always control our response to them, and the actions we take as a result.
If there’s anything you’re not happy about — in your relationships, in your health, in your career — make a decision right now about how you’re going to change it immediately.” ― Anthony Robbins
Ask this girl….
if she thought she’d be running, working out and enjoying life the way she does now, I don’t think she’d believe you. Yet here I am today.
Well, not TODAY but a couple of weeks ago in Toronto.
Saying I “exploded beyond the limitations of my condition” may be a stretch, but I did finally decide to change what I was unhappy about in my life. And over the course of 8 years I’ve come farther than I ever thought possible.
Tomorrow is Little Guy’s 8th birthday. EIGHT!!!
He (and his brother) will never know the girl in that photo above who sold herself short on a daily basis. They have helped me see how amazing life is and how I don’t want to waste another minute of it being unhappy. Well, except when they don’t listen — then I want to wring their little necks!
Fellow parents understand.
Anyway, I truly believe once you push yourself out of your comfort zone and experience life, there’s no going back.
