Taking the first step

It was Friday at 7:45am. I just droppped my kids off at school. I was sitting in my car in front of the park I had been running at for the past 3 weeks. I was on my phone checking my emails for about 10 minutes and when I was done I didn’t want to get out of the car. I was stuck. I suddenly didn’t feel like running. I gave every excuse I could to myself. Stuck. I said I have been doing so good this week I don’t have to run today. I can just do it again Monday. Than I said if I don’t do it today what’s to say I won’t do it Monday. So I told myself I just need to get out of my car, I just need to take the first step. And that was all I needed, I got out. I took the first step and I had a great run. When I got back home for my shower I created this quote and image.

I think you can apply this to anything in your life. Whether it is running, a job interview, a new sport you haven’t tried, a new business you want to start, your child trying something new. Life is all about choices. I choose freedom. Freedom for me means not letting anything hold me back, certainly not my own mind.

So go ahead take the first step…………..
