moving

My body is so sore right now. The skin on my hands is full of cuts and blisters. Lips chapped. Knees and ankles aching pretty much all the time. It’s been 8 days in a row now. Of pushing the body to the limit. Every day whatever time I could spare I used to push myself physically. Today I reached my limit. My muscles finally said fuck off to the mind. I’m tired. Beyond tired. Yet at the same time I feel that I expanded the limits of my mind and my body. Pain is temporary. Be it physical or mental. It will eventually be replaced. It might last for a day or two or eight or even a year. But if I quit my journey and my evolution now it will all be for nothing. If I quit now the pain will last forever. I am choosing to sacrifice what I am for what I will become. I am choosing to not just get comfortable in what I am right now for it serves me poorly a lot of times. I am still me but I choose to be better me. And to reach that I embrace the pain, I embrace the hard work, I embrace the pushing my limits. I also need to be smarter. Take a day off. Rest. Regroup. It’s important. It’s part of moving forward… I’m ready. I am. Moving. Forward.

    1. All the good things that are more than just a temporary bliss in life are hard to attain. They require commitment, discipline, and hard work. In the end though it’s more than worth it.
