It’s nearing the end of November and I cannot believe the year is almost going to be over! I’m sitting here in my bed with my laptop on top of my covers looking out the window. It is so gloomy and rainy today in the Bay Area. Eew it makes me so sad. The only thing that can make this okay is a big chunky sweater, a cup of warm cinnamon-apple tea, and a vibrant fireplace setting!
Unfortunately that is NOT happening right now.
I need to edit your 1000 Workout for Thursday’s video and get packed for LA. I leave like in a few hours and my luggage is still sitting on the floor the same place where I left it last time when I got back home! Traveling is not as glamorous as it sounds. I really hate traveling. Well, I don’t like the act of traveling but being in new places is nice. It’s just that getting off my routine is really tough on me. It’s something I’m still trying to work on. But my diet and exercise routine goes crazy. I just always feel like I am on a vacay when I go somewhere. EVEN IF IT’S FOR WORK STUFF!!!! Yeah, so I always try to legitimize that it’s totally ok to have this ice cream dessert after dinner. Which is fine once in a while but not 3x a week 2-3 weeks out of the month – haha! So basically, travel has messed up my mind and I travel too much.
Last night, I was speaking with a friend of mine last night and we were talking about working hard and how to live life the way you dream it…it was one of those inspirational life talks. You know what I mean right? I was saying something about how I felt like there was so much going on, how overwhelmed I was, and how I felt so spread thin that nothing was going anywhere. But he reminded me a few things:
#1. Everything’s just fine. Stop worrying, it’s a waste of your energy. Keep chugging along and choose happiness.
#2. Hard work pays off. That’s just how the universe works.
#3. You don’t fail until you stop trying.
The last one resonated with me like you wouldn’t believe. I shared it on twitter and FB right away. I had never really thought about failure and success in that way…
You are not a failure until you become a quitter.
People who are successful are persistent and resilient. I mean, seriously, if you keep trying, you will eventually get where you want to go! You will. You just can’t stop until you get there.
So guys, today the thought I wanna leave with you is this:
You may fall a million times but it’s how you get back up that makes you stronger!
Hope you can apply this to the way you choose to live life passionately. I believe in you and so should you. You’re beautiful, full of character, and unique. You can do ANYTHING.
