I am the queen of quitting. I am a pro at starting over and beginning again and this is not limited to caring for myself. This is actually the 3rd blog I’ve attempted to consistently contribute to in my lifetime. I’ve started and stopped hobbies, careers, degrees, relationships, and more with astonishing alacrity. I love to learn, I love new experiences and I love to stretch my mind. However, when it comes to taking care of myself , I’ve come to realize that quitting has dire options and I have a limited amount of chances to ‘begin again’ without consequence.
Remember when you were 20 years old and you could eat like a box of 12 Krispy Kreme doughnuts and not gain weight? Remember when you were 14 years old and could climb that rope in gymnastics without huffing or puffing? Remember being 9 years old and playing literally all day? Well FORGET THAT SHIT, that ain’t what this blog is about.
I’m not sure exactly what this blog will be about , but it won’t be a place where we ‘shoulda-coulda-woulda’ all day. We all know what we need to do. It’s not a mystery. The task at hand is to continue to stay motivated and provide support, encouragement for one another to be the best versions of ourselves : physically, spiritually, emotionally, relationally.
Hold me up and I’ll hold you up. I’ll give you what I got, you give me what you got. I’ll cheer you forward, you cheer me forward. Today is a new day, going forward we are seeking and cultivating inspiration to taking care of ourselves. Ready?
