Just Do It.

The past couple weeks, with the week of my marathon included, I’ve been struggling with a bad case of procrastination more so than ever. And honestly you guys, it’s been taking a tole on my spirit. I’ve been sleeping in instead of waking up to workout, I’ve been waiting til last minute to get things done around the house, and honestly I feel like I’ve been neglecting the things that help me stay true to myself.

I have a really loud subconscious that I feel yells at me when I am not fulfilling what I know I really want to fulfill, yet I still decide to ignore it. Sometimes I ignore it by making excuses like, “I’m too tired,” or “I’m too stressed,” knowing damn well I am perfectly healthy and super young. I can do ANYTHING possible in this physical world, yet I choose to sleep an extra two hours instead of being grateful to be awake and alive, and work my body out to a sweat – knowing DAMN WELL I will be feeling so amazing after!! So what gives??

I’m calling all of my fellow procrastinators out there – what are we afraid of? Are we really that afraid of our own potential that we just…don’t do it? I need you all to really ask yourself this question and realize that tiredness is an excuse. Laziness is an excuse. Even not wanting to help someone due to your own agenda is an excuse. Get up, stand up, and JUST DO IT! Whether we think we want to or not. Keep it positive, keep it progressive, and keep it off the couch!!

I will be reminding myself of this daily. An affirmation that keeps me active is telling myself and repeating:  “I am full of energy. I am grateful for life and I believe in myself.”

REMEMBER – YOUR ENERGY IS CONTAGIOUS, AND YOUR ACTIONS ARE OFTEN REPEATED. KEEP THE SMILES ON YOURSELF AND YOUR PEERS, SAY HELLO FIRST, DON’T CUT CORNERS AND KEEP IT HONEST!!!! 

I love you all. And I’m right behind each and every one of you.
