Today I didn’t have any crazy work occurrences that changed my schedule. There wasn’t any meeting that went longer than expected. I remembered to bring all of my stuff. Everything went right on time. I had completely run out of excuses… Excuses out of the way I headed into the gym to get back into lifting weights over lunch like I used to back in the day.
It was humbling, starting over pretty much from scratch. I’d been putting this day off for a while and had been trying to come up with excuses to put it off even longer. Starting over is never easy and sometimes the fear of starting over can be more overpowering than I’d like to admit. In the case of today I finally faced down that fear, I got over the ego, and I faced humility face on.
I am not as strong as I once was and it will take some time to get where I want to go. I’ve walked this path before and I know I will be successful. I’m thankful that I finally ran out of excuses today!
