True Story...most of my creative thoughts come to me while I’m exercising. I write most blog posts while peddling my heart out on the stationary bike.
This morning my theme was going to be ‘road blocks’. Things that pop up, seemingly out of nowhere, in an attempt to divert you from going after your goals.
I walked out of the locker room to find my ‘creativity chair’ out of order. Tears literally sprung to my eyes....
My theme couldn’t be more appropriate.
I was going to write about how I started running again....just a mile a day. My goal was to become a ‘runner’ again. Then my back started acting up.
I was going to write about how I started to eat a salad a day. My goal was to clean up my diet, to feel better & get in the habit of making healthy food choices. Then my stomach totally revolts with massive cramping & gas.
I was going to write about how instead of running I bought a bike and have fallen in love with the open roads. That I now go on a few family bike rides each week. That I never would have discovered the benefits of the bike had it not been for my back and this road block.
I was going to write about how I started a food journal to track my diet. That I was able to pin point the type of lettuce that throws me off. That I experimented with different veggies & protein. That my diet has actually been MORE intentional because of this road block.
Today, I wiped my tears & hopped on the treadmill. I got my creativity flowing in a different way and was able to walk my ‘road block’ talk.
The moral of these true stories...road blocks suck.
They also offer an opportunity to try something new.
To NOT give up.
Don’t let that road block get between you and your bad ass goal...you’ve got this!!
