I have tried to do this for too many years to mention and never seem to post every day with the common "Day of thanks number 1, 2, etc." this has bothered me but as I thought about it this year, I haven't failed because I try to dedicate time throughout the entire year to share the things and people I am thankful for. It is wonderful that people focus on thanks and Thanksgiving before things giving holiday begins and leading into the season of Christmas but why don't we wait?
I returned to the gym today for the first time in almost 3 weeks. I can give you a laundry list of reasons why I haven't gone but the simple truth is this, I wasn't putting my physical well-being first. As I walked out and towards my vehicle I thought to myself, "Self, you are on believable! You tell people you're trying to get it together and you can't even get to the gym." BUT wait a minute, I just left the gym and completed a work out? In less than three minutes from leaving the locker room, I was already beating myself up for what I hadn't done the past three weeks. Can you relate to this, or am I alone in this cycle?
success or failure? You decide. I don't think we have failures per se when we are trying to make things better or right, whatever the situation might be. We can't live in the past, even though it's easier sometimes. Instead, celebrate the little things, the simple things, and the moments that take your breath away and that you're thankful for. You can do this 365 days of the year, you don't need to wait until November.
yes, I am posting this plug in November but this is when you, my readers, are the most interested in giving thanks. So I'm some level, this is the best time of year to share this craziness with you. I might fail yet my successes far outweigh the failures in my life. And every failure was an opportunity to learn and move forward with more wisdom and experience. What about you, do you focus on the success or the failure? I pray it is the success!
