the thing about resistance training of your body is threefold.
One your mind follows your body
two doing some resistance training makes you want to do more resistance training
three and most important is it gives you drive.
without having drive you are stuck with excuses that you make up for yourself explaining away why things are the way they are.
Maybe you have had a hard time in your childhood or have experienced some horrific accident later in life and feel stuck because of it.
every obstacle in our lives is just resistance training.
Most people run away from pain but if you learn to run to it you will be able to slay a multitude of dragons.
The Bible says to embrace your yoke and struggle with it until you are strong,
If you help a chick that is breaking out of his shell by opening it for him then he will die. He needs that struggle to get the strength to live.
Grapes that have to struggle in poor soil are sweeter . that is why the French people don’t irrigate. they let the grapes work to be alive.
You have to think like this and you will always be able to use what comes your way. If you don’t then anything will kill you either emotionally or physically. Teach your children this when they are old enough to understand. show them examples in the world.
They are everywhere. Truth is everywhere spelled out if you just take the time to look!
I am doing resistance training. It is arm shaking and leg aching hard. And it is fun.
I was thinking why it is fun and suddenly attractive to me. It is because it is practicing pushing away sloth in my life. And now I am seeing it everywhere.
Instead of a bother it is just a challenge and delight because soon very soon life will be smaller with less mobility so it is best to give it your all right now. No matter where your now is , its all you have. now. time to trim the fat in my life everywhere and get cracking to a new level. its all anyone has and that is enough.
Let me tell you a story. A friend of mine who is an artist was having pretty good success in her field for several years. She kept winning awards at all the art shows and she was selling on a pretty regular basis. A small art festival was happening in her area so she decided to have a booth. She set up and the day did not turn up any sales. It as disappointing to say the least. However one person saw her at that little art show and approached her about representing her work in his gallery.
That one connection changed her life. She went from small potatoes to big ones almost overnight. She made 30 thousand dollars in one year from him selling her work. 30 thousand was just her cut so he sold 60 thousand dollars worth of work in one year. I am telling you this story because sometimes we cannot see value in what we are doing — right away. Sometimes we think it is a waste of time. But you never know, somebody may find you because you have your work in a restaurant and they may be a broker and they might have been looking for someone like you all their lives.
It is always a thrill to create anything. it is so much better than just thinking about doing it. Even if you do something that is subpar”who cares?” it is not the end of the world.
it is the beginning of the world.
Ha that is what just doing it is about. Even if you do a mud mess when it should have been a painting,,, get up brush yourself off and start again.
The depression comes when you finish , so never never finish any project. Make it a big project so it will take a lifetime to get done.
My husband and I have a little house that is a rental and we were making plans for fixing it up more than it already is .
Way more. We want to turn it into a jewel box complete with diamonds and emeralds. IL have never seen a house with this, so now is the time to do the front door all jewels. What a delight to come home to a jewel encrusted front door.
also I want to paint it deep purple and plant a lavender farm in the front yard.
We like to plan. It is more fun than not planning.
You only live once. be outrageous because what is the alternative. not be outrageous. ug how boring!
