I find it interesting how so many of us are prepared to move mountains to reach our goals?
Like the weekend warriors who constantly prepare for a fight!
Yet too often, buried in that pursuit, is a setup for failure.
I instead enjoy and encourage doing something that you love.
The warrior may love the battle, but at what cost?
I much prefer doing things with ease.
Does it easily incorporate into my daily schedule? Do I enjoy it? Do I like how I feel before and afterward?
I take this approach as I maintain my weight or go to the gym regularly. I accomplish the things that require maintenance, and they feel good.
Life is so much easier this way.
So why this need, this desire, this all-encompassing drive to push yourself to the brink?
“The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.”
It sounds good on paper, yeah?
But is it?
I like the word sustainable — capable of maintaining its own.
If you are constantly pushing yourself to the brink, your body will give out.
That is not sustainable.
That is not how bodies are designed.
But when you “fall in love with life. Be a tornado of happiness, gratitude, and acceptance.” —Anita Krizzan
When you approach your life with wonder, awe, and curiosity…
Then life becomes quite extraordinary, and you “slowly change the world just by being a warm, kind-hearted human being.” — Anita Krizzan
It just doesn’t get much simpler than that.
