I've been neglecting my blogging lately, but I have a pretty amazing reason - I've been feeling really happy! If you've ever suffered from depression, you know how amazing it is to actually have a time that you feel happy. With that said, I've just been enjoying this happy feeling and enjoying my time with friends and family.
But lately I've been thinking about this wonderful feeling of happiness and wanted to share with you how it all came about.
As I mentioned in my last post, I attended an amazing weekend workout camp a few weeks ago and it's changed my thinking lately. Not only did we exercise our butts off, but we also participated in some amazing motivational exercises. A few of those inner exercises made a big change in me.
Something clicked inside of me when Jen Hendershott (the host) talked about nutrition. She was describing her competition diet (she's an amazing fitness competitor) and someone commented on how difficult it must be to eat like that. She replied that it was very difficult, but that competing was something she wanted to do so she just made the choice to follow an extremely difficult diet in order to get what she wanted.
As she talked about that, I thought about my life and all the things I find difficult. For some reason, I've often assumed that life is just more difficult for me than other people. That I'm the only one that doesn't want to get out of bed in the morning, that I'm the only one that feels too tired to clean up the house, etc. And perhaps I am, but I just need to put my head down and get the difficult things done because this is the life that I have chosen and am very lucky to get to live it.
So right now, I'm giving thanks for my life and feeling lucky for what I have.
Oh, I'm also reading The Secret right now. I'll blog more on that later.
