Are we done yet?
I taste blood
Wait, am I bleeding?
Jeez! How hot is it in here?
I can’t see
I can’t feel my legs
You want me to put my what where???
I’m all tingly! I can’t breathe!
Am I dying?
Bad word! Bad word! Bad word! ^%*(%*$(*%
Did this internal dialogue happen during a twenty-mile training run? Perhaps an intense hour of boxing? A fifty-mile hike?
Monday morning hot yoga. It wasn’t pretty, it didn’t feel good, but we made it and now a glorious Monday lays before all of us. We have a choice, you know. Do you let the sweat and hard work make you wanna say bad words OR do you let it slide, take a deep breath, and move on?
I vote for the second option, and it doesn’t have to be all serious. Some days we crawl through the day and laugh at ourselves when we catch a glimpse in the mirror. It’s not pretty and it’s not graceful. But despite the bad hair and smelly pits, we are showing up and doing the work – whatever your work might be.
Sending you off to your week with a laugh (video below) and a reminder to practice self-compassion and kindness. And, if neither of these work…perhaps a well-timed F-bomb is in order.
Instagram theme for the week: Kindness
