So there I was last night, sitting on my couch scrolling through Instagram. I was looking at all my favorite fitness & inspirational pages. The very first thought that entered my mind was “man I hate how unhealthy & out of shape I am.” Then not long after there came my second, “I wish I could look that good.” And my last negative thought that came to me was “I just can’t ever find the time to work out like they do.”
Fitness is hard. Life is hard. Keeping a clean house is hard. Work is hard. Eating right is hard.
Why are we so lazy these days? I mean lets think about the days when folks got up at the crack of dawn to plant their crops by hand, do chores, stack hay, wash laundry, can veggies, clean house, cook meals, and so on. Do you think they ever laid there and though “Uhhh, I don’t wanna!”
Sure, they may have…but they never did, because they HAD to get up and create their lives.
You have to.
We HAVE to.
We have to open our eyes and realize that the lazy ass idle lifestyle so many of us live is not living. It’s just slowly watching the days pass on as we watch them roll by. We sit around and make excuses for not exercising or for eating shit food instead of just doing it. We sit around and make excuses for not getting projects done in time when the reason was because we sat there and slacked off.
All we do is make excuses.
There are some people out there who have been struck with misfortune and you know, I wish we could see the world through their eyes for just a moment.
I saw this video earlier and it put a lump in my throat.
This girl just dead lifted more weight than I can even think to lift WITH ONE ARM!
She damn sure doesn’t sit around and make excuses and feel sorry for herself, and I think we can all learn from that.
This life is way to short to be unhealthy, lazy, miserable, unhappy….
If you don’t like your job, find a new one.
If you don’t like your body, make a new one.
If you aren’t happy find something that will make you that way.
If you make a mistake, try again.
The only time you fail is when you give up.
Take advantage of each day because it REALLY could be your last.
