Life has a funny way of challenging you to be better, and its often our own limiting thoughts that keep us from conquering those challenges and elevating us to the next level.
When in doubt, when in anguish, when feeling unmotivated, JUST GO. When you doubt yourself, just go. It can sound like a bunch of crap, but I'm telling you, go. All success ever takes is one step, then another, then another. Convincing yourself is 90% of the battle. The other 10 is all effort.
When you honor your spirit, you are honoring the champion within. The champion that can win at anything. Don't feel like working out? Just Do It. Don't feel like completing that tasks? Just Do It. You keep avoiding an important conversation or decision? Just Do It.
Every since Monday my body has been FIGHTING a bug. It attacked me so hard I hadn't kept up with my jump rope and running challenge because my body was weak, but my mind was even weaker. My spirit said yes, but my mind said, ughhh I just don't FEEL like it. Tuesday night I kept my Praise playlist on while I was sleeping so words uplifting Yavah (God) would be in me and I could awake with a sound mind and stronger body. Even though I felt better yesterday, I didn't even get 3/4ths of my to do list done. But I took a page out of my own BOOK and I remembered to honor my body and spirit no matter what. The 2 most important tasks for me was exercising and cleaning my room. It didn't happen until 5pm and I was sooooo relieved when it did. Why? Because I kept having that back and forth chatter of, "I don't feel like it, Come on Tiff you can do it, ughhh I need to get back on my challenge," etc.
Long story short, I cleaned my room and burned my favorite homemade incense from mamasunshinestreasures.com . Felt good. Jump roped, ran, did some ab work and felt powerful. After I stretched, I expressed supreme gratitude for the strength within my mind and body. Now I can lay in my clean room full of love and joy, proud of the effort I exerted in a great workout. In a moment of centeredness, I burned my "I AM Worthy" candle from anotherballofwax.com and really connected to what I was feeling.
When "something" tugs at you to move forward and the small chatter in your mind encourages resistance, you are not Honoring your Spirit. The tasks, experiences, and efforts you keep putting on the back burner...is not how you Honor Your Spirit. You are worthy of feeding your champion. You are worthy of feeling your best!
