Hey y’all… you know my blog posts are usually me preaching to myself! Well… here we go… again.
Do I have to workout again? Do I have to fix a healthy meal again? Do I have to go to work again? Do I have to take my vitamins again? Do I have to tell you “I love you” again? Do I have to pray with you … again? Do I have to call you… again? Do I have to make my bed again? Do I have to brush my teeth…. again… and bathe again… for the 100 gazillionth time? Do I have to say “I’m sorry” again. Do I have to forgive you… again? Do I have to do this again? Do I have to do that again? Really? Again?
YES .. yes I do. The outcome I want comes from doing what it takes & doing the right thing…. again. Many things, like saying “I love you” and praying , are things I WANT to do over and over and over again. But some things, like exercising and going to work… I could really skip. But, if I skip exercising I’ll never reach my goal or maintain it. If I skip work I won’t get paid. If I don’t brush my teeth… they will rot out of my head. You get the picture…
I admit, I quit working out for several months. And I can tell! I mean… you’d think that once you attain your desired goals you could quit and maintain the results. Well, it didn’t work that way. Nothing works that way. Health, Relationships, Business… they all take consistent work to achieve the best results and consistent work to maintain the desired results.
OK… I went backwards in my health goal… but I’m getting back up and I’m at it again. I’m committing to do a little something every day toward my goal. I am consistent with my nutritional supplements because they are easy. With my supplements, I crave water and I don’t crave unhealthy drinks and foods. But, I’ve still got to move more. I’ve got to get consistent with my exercise.
I want to encourage you on your journey too… don’t quit on your goals in any area of your life! If you want better results in relationships… be consistent at showing how much you care, speaking kindly, asking forgiveness, forgiving, and doing what it takes to build good relationships. If you want better results in your business… be passionate about it…. work at it .. every day. If you want better physical health… focus on consistent good nutrition and exercise.
Maintaining consistency with a joyful heart is going to require a change in how we speak to ourselves and others. It’s not “Do I have to?” but… “I get to! I’m excited to! and I want to!” I get to workout again! I want to eat healthy again! I am excited to go to work again! I am happy I am filling my body with good nutrition again. I am thrilled to tell you “I LOVE YOU” again. I’m so glad I can pray with you … again. I can’t wait to talk to you again. Thank you Lord for this bed I get to make again and that I get to brush my teeth and take a hot bath again. I am eager to forgive and ask forgiveness and have peace … again. Every day, I am grateful I get to hug my family, move more, and live life joyfully.. again!
Let’s think about the results we want and let’s do what it takes to get there (and stay there)…. AGAIN!
