I didn’t have “proper” running shoes or running clothes but I did have 20-minutes at the end of my work day and the motivation to feel my best. So I threw on what I had and took 15 minutes to jog to some super fun tunes.
It made me feel ah-mazing, energized and mentally clear – I love the way bite sized things can make all the difference! It was the perfect fuel for a solo evening with the 3 kiddos!
I recently made two new commitments to myself: to turn my devices off by 10pm (I’ve love this so much I’m now working to get that to 9pm –I’m about 50% there!) AND to get to my mat every single day, even if only for 15 minutes (this practice is my calm, balance and inspiration but can easily wane as work picks up – no longer!). The truth is, even though I know the way these things work, I am so in love with how much inspiration theses commitment are bringing to my work and how beautifully they’ve blossomed into me getting out for additional moments of goodness (like my quick jog).
It truly is magical the way making ourselves a priority and committing to ourselves can create the most beautiful domino effect of holistic goodness. I bet my kiddos and hubby have also noticed the effects! There really is such power in the bite sized steps, the realization that you are the only one standing in your way and the awareness that you’re worth it. We need to say goodbye to the “I can’t”, “I don’t have”, and “I’ll do it later” because cant’s, don’t haves, and laters mean you’re not. It’s all about just doing it, knowing it can be bite-sized and that consistency is what brings the gifts of awesomeness into our life.
Action creates change. Change creates our ability to live a life we love. What bite sized commitment can you make today for YOU? You’re worth it…
