We just don't know what each day is going to bring, do we? This week has been wrought with challenges - mental, physical and emotional. And amazingly, I am able to effectively deal with the challenges as they are being flung at me. Could it be I am able to handle life better when I am eating healthy and exercising regularly? Could it be that it strengthens me physically and emotionally? Why, I do declare that is the case!
So today has turned out to be a no work day. My son has some medical issues and needs to be seen by his pediatrician. I was planning on doing that Saturday, but he decided to speed up the process by getting his finger jammed by a basketball yesterday. I took him to one of those nighttime clinics, but now I need to let his own doctor take a peek. So that's one thing that the day brings.
My trainer is sick this morning (waving to Nina...hope you feel better soon!) My first reaction (after feeling bad for her) was "Yay! I get the day off!" What???? I can't let that be an excuse to not do anything! I'm doing this for me; allow me to pledge right here to all of you that no matter what, when I am done posting this I will go workout. So that's another thing today brings.
But the most important thing that today is going to bring is......The Avett Brothers concert tonight in DC! I have been looking forward to this since the last time I saw them (Nashville Oct 31/31st). This is my son's first time seeing them. I hope I don't embarrass him too badly by standing, screaming, singing, and crying like the fangirl that I am. What can I say? I'm a big dork.
I never really know what each day is going to bring - work challenges, parenting challenges, fitness challenges, spiritual and relational challenges - some days a combination of all the above. What I DO know, however, is that the more I focus on making my own next right choices, including eating healthy whole foods and working out faithfully, the better able I am to handle them all. And that's a fact!
