Did you have a great weekend? A really LOVEly one? Did you celebrate the things you love in your life, the people and most importantly, did you celebrate wonderful YOU? Or at least something about you that you like a tiny bit? I hope so. If not, do it now….. and do it every week this year. See what happens…
I liked this quote for #fearlessfeb as we start our Make your Life Briliant Course online. Often we think, I have tried this before, I have tried it and I can’t do it, it doesn’t work, there is no point…. etc. We create limitations in our own minds of why we can’t do something, it’s kind of like a comfortable safety net, that doesn’t really work that well, yet it works.
Through my weils and encephalitis, which I don’t really like to talk about too much, but occasionally feels like it might be helpful for you… I have often come to the ‘end’ of a path and felt stuck, frustrated, unsure and confused about what I ‘should’ do next, like the possibilities of progression have ended. And then, with a moment, or a day like this, I pause and reflect. Firstly, its normal in life to have moments of not feeling okay. Then its totally normal to create a safety net to deal with these situations….
Yet I want to jump out of the net, I want to find the possibilities that are out there, I want to find what I have not found…. for only finding and exploring what we don’t know, losing sight of the shore and what is comfortable do we find and learn new things, new feelings and new depths of courage, compassion, enjoyment and happiness…
So my ramble for #Mondaysmotivation today is this….. when you doubt yourself, when you think I just don’t know if this is right but I wish I could give it a go…… do.
Give ‘it’ a go…. the worst that could happen is it doesn’t work, in whatever context that means… but what will definetly happen is that you will find some more possibilities…
So this week, be brave, braver than you think you can be and go find…. find a possibility that you never knew excited and see what happens
Because, there will never be a right time, everything will never feel just right… sometimes you just have to do ‘it’. Here’s my commitment to you…..
I got a bike fit by the lovely people at the The Triathlon Shop in June 2013, then Weils near killed me off, then I tried to kill it off last September, then it nearly killed me again…. left with autoimmune encephalitis which pops up regularly enough to challenge me…. and give me millions of learnings.
Yesterday I decided was the day. The conditions were not perfect in me, but the weather and day was……I managed a very wobbly, very short bike ride on my own! Yippee, yippee.
So if you think, I’m waiting to feel this….. before I do this….. you may wait a long time. I was very nervous.
I know it will be a bit like a dance, forwards once step, rest two steps backwards, forward another. But hey, let’s go for that ride together…..
I want to live, bounce, laugh, love and be fit, inside and out. I want YOU (if you are ready) to join me this year and do just that…..
