Well, I’m back and feeling like myself again, ready to dive back into blogging and prepared to get to work as a Running Coach! Let me tell you, life has given me one thrilling roller coaster ride since the last time I’ve sat down at the keyboard to share my perspective. A year ago, after everything I had gone through, I was in one very dark place, but I didn’t stay there. No matter what life is handing you, allow yourself to feel it, and work past it because the only thing we can count on in this crazy life is change. Everything is a season and will change.
I rang in 2019 with an agenda book that always looked at me with the words “Amazing things will Happen 2019. While this year wasn’t all amazing and I definitely had some shit handed to me, but it pushed my limits, and that’s exactly what I needed to get to this season of life where I’m ready to focus on how my experiences and knowledge can help women like you overcome life’s setbacks or reach that bucket list running goal.
It took failing multiple times to arrive at this pivot point in my life. When I look back, I’ve failed in every area of my life at some point. Giving up would be easy, but to do that, it would have to be something that I’m not passionate about. So I’ve challenged myself to give it one more try and learned that you have to fail before you earn success.
This very principle also reminds me of the most basic strength principle that boils down to working the muscle until failure. It doesn’t matter if you’re lifting heavy, light, or placing still resistance on your body; it still has to be worked to the point of failure to be effective. Rest and repeat, and if your consistent and set yourself up with some proper nutrition, you’ll build muscles and get stronger.
I’ve failed as a runner, entrepreneur and failed my body into some health issues by neglecting self-care, and I’m sure countless other things. It’s easy to brush off failure when it’s something that doesn’t matter and walk away. But failing at something that sets your heart on fire makes you get back up on those feet and give it your best shot another time. And when you do, look out world! Sure, you could totally fail again, but one day you’re going to come out on top when you reach whatever success looks like to you.
Are there any New Year’s resolutions you’ve failed to meet? Maybe a new running distance you’ve always wanted to conquer but gave up on.
