Don’t Quit!

Love this!! I think I may print off multiple copies and post them around. In front of my spin bike, on the wall of the exercise room at my work, I’d love to even see this on an exercise mat!

Just remember to keep going!! Every time your lungs breath deeper, every time your biceps curl more weight, every time you power out one more squat or crunch, every time you walk for another five minutes, you are getting stronger and you are further then where you started! Don’t quit, because that truly is something to be proud of!

As tragedy unfolds…

Today’s tragedy in Boston breaks my heart. A day that so many trained and planned for. A day where strangers came out to rally and cheer on people they didn’t even know! To offer encouragement and support. One of the most amazing things about running in an event like this is the comradory, support and love between runners, organizers and spectators. This was a day filled with promise and happiness for so many.

And someone tried to take that all away today.

I don’t understand…and I don’t want to. I want to offer prayer, support and love to all those who are affected by this tragedy. I want to honour the greatness of those who started this morning, with an ambitious goal, those who stepped out the door to cheer on the runners and to those who have spent the last year organizing this event. To the emergency personnel who responded, and to those who stepped up and stepped into the role of first-aiders as the confusion unfolded. Your efforts will never be forgotten by those who you comforted and helped.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

You’re Going to Be Right

You’re thoughts play such a significant role in your success. We all have days that are less than stellar, but don’t ever let a down day keep you down. Keep your thoughts focused on the path to success, so that even when you stumble, you can find your way back.

When all else fails, remember the words of that famous little engine, “I think I can, I think I can”, and you will succeed. Have a great week!

Follow Your Heart

Do you trust yourself? Seems like a simple question at first. Do you “go with your gut”? Does it depend on the situation; who else will be affected by your decision; how permanent the choice will be?

There are a few things I’ve learned in the last year or so, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still struggle. It’s okay to make mistakes, it’s okay to take chances, it’s good to be silly, and we are all perfectly imperfect it’s what makes each of us unique 🙂

For me I think if I follow my heart, than I can trust myself. I’m working on the trusting myself part though, because that’s a head thing, and logic and the heart don’t always see eye to eye, even if they both want what’s best. It’s scary, it carries a lot of responsibility and recently it’s meant making some tough choices. So far my heart hasn’t lead me astray though…
