Look, I’m gonna be honest… when we didn’t have power yesterday, one of my thoughts was definitely about “but I can’t miss my workout… I have a punny shirt I’ve waited months to wear!”
Plus there’s the whole stress relief, and the fact on a day I’m gonna pig out I •need• to move my body… so of course, it was a thought for sure!
So yeah, it’s been a rough couple of days, but in the end I’m GRATEFUL we even HAVE a home to power, and to heat (yeah our furnace started having issues basically the second the power fiasco got resolved 😳)
And I’m GRATEFUL that I have workouts and a capable body to help me work through the stressors of being a homeowner.
What’s that? It’s wordplay Wednesday?! Well then, this shirt fits the bill, amiright?!
My philosophy is whatever lights you up, whatever MOTIVATES you to do what it is you gotta do, whatever FUELS you, INSPIRES you and propels you into ACTION… DO THAT.
For me it’s wordplay – wordplay is my jam and LIGHTS me up, it inspires me and ENERGIZES both my heart and my soul, which energizes the rest of me. I can’t explain it, it just does.
And that may not be everyone’s jam, which is fine. The point is, YOU have to find what lights YOU up and spurs YOU into action (because we all know thinking is one thing, action is another!)
For me, a fun shirt motivates me to do the dang things even when I may not want to (I am human; those moments absolutely happen), and sometimes it just IS that simple.
Find what fuels you and run with it – DON’T worry about what others think (I stopped worrying about people judging me for just how long some wordplay can make me laaaaaugh and reminded myself that LAUGHTER is a good thing!) and don’t feel the need to explain yourself – you owe no one an explanation, but you do owe it to your HEART and SOUL to do what makes them happy, healthy and vibrant.
I had this funny (to me) idea for a shirt and while my execution/idea didn’t go off as planned, I still find it funny and I fixed up the mess as best as I could, and it was fun to wear while doing Booty day with friends! This is when I need to remember PERFECTION is not a real thang!
