Here it is, 11:04 at night – I really should be in bed as I have a full day tomorrow starting with an early morning fitness marshall workout, BUT, as I was cleaning out my car (more on that in a second), I realized that I needed to write.
Honestly, I have the motivation to write quite often. But then life happens – which is exactly why I wanted to write.
I often find myself thinking to myself (or out loud) that life imitates life. This seems like such an easy concept, but I think when it happens, we sell ourselves short and don’t remember it. For instance – have you ever felt guilty about not making your bed even though you didn’t make it because you woke up late after getting to bed too late the night before. Yeah – me too. This morning, in fact.
Yesterday, I cleaned my entire house. I was suddenly that much more motivated to come home tonight, take the trash out, and keep it clean.
Earlier tonight I was taking my trash out, I decided to finally clean the trash out of my car, because people, it was getting embarrassing. An entire trash bag full came out of my car. But you want to know why? I’m incredibly busy and half my meals lately have taken place in my car – or I’ve been trying to clean my glasses in the car – or my sunglasses broke – or a whole other host of reasons.
I told myself to take a picture every day this year of my exercise so that I can hold myself accountable with my goal of exercising every day. I have found myself even more excited to exercise (even though that trying to figure out what to do for each picture is going to get real old, real fast).
Life imitates life! I could go on and on with examples, because life goes on and on, if we’re lucky. Some of them are harder and some are easier. Some make life the best and some make it the worst. Because that’s how it works. Overall, my 2018 life is pretty damn happy. Which means work is (mostly) happy (I say mostly because Bridal Fair is 17 days away), which means my home is happy, which means working out is happy.
Life imitates life…and right now, mine’s going pretty well 🙂
