This last year I have really been focusing on making myself the best person I can possibly be. I wake up every morning and pray. I started getting up four days a week early to workout. I now listen to an inspirational speaker or sermon while I put my make-up on and do my hair. I make time to read my Bible. I write my dreams and goals down every day. I started taking guitar lessons. I became a fashion consultant. I was certified to teach barre classes. I started this blog.
It’s like I have this entire laundry list of things that I am trying to do to be the best person I can possibly be. I want to make sure when I look back on my life I didn’t miss out on any opportunities. I want to leave a legacy behind for my children. I want them to be proud of the person that their mother was and is.
But we all have those days or weeks. The ones that everything seems to go wrong when you are trying to do everything right. The ones where you can barely open your eyes long enough to recite a prayer. The ones where every muscle in your body is so sore that you are positive if you workout you will not be able to move the rest of the day. The ones where you run out of time to read your Bible, write down your goals, or have lost your desire to do anything.
These are the times to just stop everything and pray, turn on a good song and just dance your heart out, or sit in silence and let yourself breathe, cry, whatever it is to get yourself back on track.
It’s funny though. I’ve been told over and over again, if you do all of these things you will be successful. If you do all of these things you will be happy. Your success lies in your daily routine. Well it’s been a year. How long are you supposed to wait because I wouldn’t mind sleeping in a little later, but I’m also not about to give up.
I will re-set, re-adjust, re-focus, re-start as many times as I have to. I will be successful.
