Recently, I feel like a have a lot to say, or just maybe a lot on my mind … who doesn’t feel this way, right? Anyway, I’ve been writing blog topics for the gym that I belong to, and decided I might as well share some of them here as well… (These aren’t necessarily photography related, so bear with me)
What’s Your Why?
I was in a group class recently when the teacher put out the question “What’s your why?” and it’s been on my mind ever since. It’s not often that we slow down enough to ponder these questions about the larger picture of life. So, what’s your why? What’s your why for working out? Do you make it a priority? Why do you do it? What motivates you? Is it to fit into the smaller section of your closet? Is it so that you have control over something in your life? Is it for health reasons? I have multiple answers to that question but at the end of the day, I want to feel good, capable, strong and healthy.
I spent many years skipping things because I felt too fat (& embarrassed) to show up. It’s sad to me now, to realize that I just wasn’t et in a place to see it was all in my power to make changes, but I wasn’t there. I sometimes think that now I’m trying to make up for lost time.
Now I want to keep up with my kids, and I want adventure. Those are my why’s. What are yours?
