Sometimes when things are out of your control, it’s easy for your self improvement and road to recovery seem pointless.
But on the days that it hurts worse than you thought possible, dig deep and fight back. Getting out the door is the hardest step. I’ve been very depressed all weekend and wasn’t even able to stay out in public long on Saturday night. However, I forced myself to at least go out. It’s ok to fall short, but in order to fall short you need to try.
When I woke up this morning, I was still super in the pits and just laid in bed for over an hour with Gibson. I was content to stay there all day, but that’s what the old me would have done. I got up, showered, and headed to the gym where I kicked my own ass for 2 hours until my thoughts made sense again. I looked down at my hands after the workout and some of my blisters had popped and I hadn’t even realized.
Then I was able to get a bunch of meal prep done for the week (yes I eat a lot of chicken right now, walk the dog, mow the lawn (yes again, it’s rained a lot this week) and got a project done I’ve been saying i would do for a year.
It has turned into a super productive, gorgeous day because I forced it to be a good day. I could have stayed in bed all day and lamented how unfair life can be, instead I decided to do something about it.
