Thursday February 23rd, 2017, can you believe it? Here we are early in the AM again. I bet you are wondering what is going to be in this one. What are Thursdays? That blah day before the weekend? Can we go as far as Friday eve as I hear on the news every Thursday morning? For me it is usually a rest day. That means I have exercised at least 5 days in a row. My rest days are usually Thursday and Sunday. So why in the heck am I up so early? This rest day is a stretching and rolling day. Stretching and rolling is one of the most important part of any training regimen.
A few things have happened on my journey this week. Some good, some bad, but all are lessons. Nothing will keep me down for long.
I see so many people who are struggling with many issues in life. And from what I can see is that step one is admitting you are struggling with something. If you need help with something there is help. There are resources. Heck I am a resource or an outlet. A resource sounds kinda like a professional. Totally not me. What I do have is a big heart and plenty of room in my head to help.
The big message is that sure, life can throw plenty of curveballs at you. Don't try to be a hero and bottle them up. That will just end up hurting you.
This is why I am still up at crazy hours and trying to help just one person. Now let's turn the tables. Can you be that person if just for a day? You never know when that random person will bump into you at the mall or maybe you get a random friend and message request. Open your heart for a second and amazing things can happen.
I have approached compete strangers who while shopping and minding their own business were looking at stuff that would have either hurt them, or not work at all. I must have appeared to be a total weirdo. My apologies if you are reading this😎.
I often wonder if my messages are making sense. I have a bunch of thoughts in my head and have many goals in life. I will work until I can work no more to achieve them. If you are wondering just what in the hell makes me tick or where I have found this "fountain of youth" you know where to find me. If you just need to chat of talk I'll give you my number.
Every single one of us has a gift. I cannot tell you what it is. That is your job. My gift is I am a good listener (sometimes) and have a knack of just figuring stuff out.
I heard that the hate in our beloved country has grown recently. This just kills me inside. Please don't fuel the fire of hate. I don't even let my kids say they hate something or someone. What does hate really accomplish anyway? Absolutely NOTHING.
As I have said before, it costs nothing to be a good person. Don't complain, whine, bitch, moan, or talk behind people's back. It will pay huge dividends tomorrow.
I would love to hear at least one person tell me that today is their day to move on! It is going to be 65 and sunny in my corner of the world. You bet your ass I will get outside. Maybe even go for a walk on my rest day.
Today is also transformation Thursday. I am going to just put a picture of me up here. Not only have a transformed my body, I have transformed my life. It has not been easy every day. What has made it easy on most days is only being sick 2 times in almost 3 years. Each time it lasted two days or less. Let that sink in. This nut job lost a ton of weight, doesn't get sick often anymore, and when he does, it does not last. Sounds like a great freaking deal to me.
I want today to be your day. If you want something bad enough you will make it work. Get outside breathe in the sun and a fresh winter air. Life is too short to be all wrapped up in yourself.
As we approach another weekend make some notes about what you want to do. If you have made progress in your diet, exercise and rest routines, don't let the weekend derail you.
You are an unstoppable force to be reckoned with. Do not ever let anyone tell you anything different.
If you fall into a bag of m&m's just crawl out and put the sugar rush to good use!
Keep those who are suffering mentally, physically, and emotionally in your thoughts or prayers. Whatever is on tap for today, finish it! Don't do anything half assed.
I think this should do it for today. Today is a rest day for me. It is killing me to not be at the gym. Make sure you rest too!
Have a blessed and happy Thursday. See y'all tomorrow.
