Life Happens

On February 17, 2010, in Miscellaneous, by scott

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seemed to go the way you had envisioned… or even remotely  your way?  Some days, life just seems to hand you a bag of that stuff that nobody wants. It is days like this that make us happier on the days when things happen differently.

Today was one of those days for me. It started early this morning and seemed to carry on through most of the day. I did manage to get a ride in on the recumbent while our son napped, but our daughter refuses to actually take a nap in her bed for me.  No nap means loud, hyper, and disobedient in the evening.

The diet was also thrown out the window. After dinner, we enjoyed a healthy helping of paczkis.  Tasty and not too healthy, but a once a year treat. I wasn’t about to say no to something that would probably give me cravings later in the week.

Persistence, not perfection. A bit of a motto I tend to follow (thank you Bill Phillips.) Tomorrow is a new day. Cheat meals have been consumed, but the workout still happened. Tomorrow is leg day and I plan on making the most of it. I’m also hoping to wake up with the sun shining (even if only theoretically) and remembering whatever hiccups life throws at me, I can handle it.

If you believe in God, you may know that He never gives you more than you can handle. Some days it feels like exercise. We get to where we think we can’t push or handle any more, then we drive onto that next level, making our bodies and minds respond and grow stronger.

I will wake up stronger tomorrow. I will let stress roll off of my back. I will enjoy the time I have with my family. Tomorrow is a new day and I will take the lessons I have learned from today and apply them to tomorrow and the days beyond.
