Monday again

Coffee Monday

Hi, y’all!

So, because September turned out to be a rough month, we decided to skip it all together. Cue Green Day.

But a lot has happened in the first 10 days of October, I feel I owe you an update on what actually went on in September and how nice October is shaping up to be. Be on the lookout for that later this week.

In the meantime, coffee for everyone! (Heading to get my third cup of the morning now.)

Motivation Monday

First step

When my Dad and I talk about starting a new sport or workout, I always lament about how in shape I used to be and how hard it’s going to be to get into the routine. Then, he reminds me of the Lao Tzu quote: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

There are always multiple paths in life. If you aren’t happy on one, you should look for another. And I’m not talking about making major life changes (unless that’s what you need), but small adjustments that bring you happiness or fulfillment.

Even the small adjustments can bring challenges, though. That is when this quote rings strongest in my thoughts. I spent two years trying to take that first step after a fitness hiatus and it really sucked. But six months later, I’ve found forward momentum and am well on my way to the thousand mile mark.

First steps (even the small ones) can sometimes be hard, but help you make the greatest leaps forward.
