I’ve lost track of days, but you get the gist. Tired from a good workout yet mentally energized. Something about moving the body. It’s so true. I made it through the entire workout without stopping. How many times have I quit before the finish line. I’m in the valleys, and it’s not where I desire to be. I’m accepting that daily. I don’t multitask at all. Certain tasks if not all take my undivided attention. I must be fully present walking, talking or doing anything. If I don’t there are consequences. I have taken spills because I wasn’t watching where I was going. Every action requires a precise reaction. I think I programmed myself to always be on the move, without regard to what was best for me. I took societal cues, ran a race not designed for a me, and played a game where the odds weren’t in my favor. I took gambles’ I shouldn’t have. Run my race, not the one I wish I had. Success will come when it wants. The path is long, but taking the shortcut is rougher in the end.
When I let
Have a nice day. Greetings CarolineReplyDelete
Shortcuts never work out in the long run, Regine. Stay the course!ReplyDelete
We have to be sure to run our OWN race, not what others have told us too, whether that be spiritual or physical.ReplyDelete
Same here, darling!ReplyDelete
And yes, movement is key!!

i agree with all who say movement is the key.. Strange i just realized the other day when it is humid my body feels about 20 pounds heavier. When the air clears I'm like a ...40 year old again which is young to me.ReplyDelete
Movement is indeed key and as long as you're moving. That's the secret.ReplyDelete
Have a fabulous day, Regine. ♥
Take care. We all must move, it's good for us!ReplyDelete
Moving forward and all the way, even if slowly, is better than taking shortcuts.ReplyDelete
Movement is key for me also, but too often I way overdo. I feel your pain my friend.ReplyDelete
Movement is a mustReplyDelete
I can no longer race - and particularly in the race which someone else has designed (and set the rules for).ReplyDelete
Yes, whatever we do, we have to be precise in our actions and reactions.ReplyDelete
In my experience, too, physical exercise always brings mental energy.ReplyDelete
Best wishes and a good start into September ,
Estar em movimento é muito saudável, mas sem extremo!
Divirta- se a vida é isso mesmo!
A good workout sure helps!ReplyDelete
Exercise is so good for a lot of things.ReplyDelete
Tenemos que ser conscientes de nuestras acciones. Muy buen textoReplyDelete
It's good to exercise as long as you don't over do it.ReplyDelete
Good point. And so true. Congrats on making it through the workout! Hugs-ErikaReplyDelete
Taking a short cut is not always a good idea.ReplyDelete
Keep going ...
My good wishes.
All the best Jan
Sua reflexão é inspiradora e concordo. Devemos encarar nosso caminho, por mais que seja longo, valerá a pena no final. Pegar os atalhos da vida é só cilada.ReplyDelete

So much truth for us all!ReplyDelete
I agree--the mental focus has to be so intense, no wonder tiredness gets intense!ReplyDelete
La fin de l'été ou un changement de lune fatigue aussi ! Gros bisousReplyDelete
It seems to take us a fair while to work out that we should 'run our own race' and not try to keep up with what we think we should/could do, or what others may think we need or ought to do...ReplyDelete
Love this! Being present and continuing to move gets you through!ReplyDelete

It always feels better after the work out!ReplyDelete
You inspire me. I really need to start doing this more regularly!ReplyDelete
"Be here now" is a great help for me. Doing some kind of exercise leaves me mentally energized, too :)ReplyDelete
We always have to run our own race. You are an encourager. Such an inspriation. Take care.ReplyDelete
