As I’m writing this, I’m incredibly bored at work. I work in an Admissions office requesting transcripts and there are days when I can hardly cope with the boredom of my job. I love my co-workers, (most of them hahahah) love drinking coffee at my very decorated desk,
managing the 3 GA’s that come in and work with me, all the detailed stuff I have to handle as part of my job… but today, I’m just bored. I can’t even pretend to make up work, because I’ve already done that all week. It’s tuesday, 3:30 pm, and I’m ansty to get off for the night!
I’ve already got my run in for today (3m at 7am) and only that late because it was dark until then. Tonight is biggest loser night, and I know we’ll both be glued to the TV watching the coaches kick the contestants butts! It’s so inspiring to watch people who couldn’t walk up a flight of stairs train for a marathan and sometimes losing up to 100 lbs in the process… it makes me realize that I CAN DO THAT TOO! I’m not allowed to think I can’t train for a half marathon, because if THEY CAN, I CAN! It’s going to take the same amount of dedication and work, and even more discipline because I don’t have a team cheering me on, a coach kicking my butt, and the nation watching… but I know I can do it. What do you find motivating? What inspires you to reach your goals?
I love Lulu’s little quote that I found… and I realized that I based on my outlook on life, I should probably like myself a little more. Actually, I always think I need to do better, perform better (in running and everything else) and the people around me are proud of me for who I am… not what I do. I need to let things roll off my shoulder a little more and let other people take the slack for things I can’t do or control.
So. I decided to make a list of things I like about myself:
1. I love to laugh. A lot. And tickle and cuddle and make jokes and make other people laugh.
2. I like to work hard, whether it’s at work, on my school, cleaning my house… baking… I throw all my energy into whatever I do, and get ‘er done quick!
3. Generally a very optamistic person… I tend to see the good in situations and inspire others to have a better outlook on life.
4. I think I’m an inspiring person. I love seeing the good in people and helping them go further and do more with the gifts I see in them. I love to encourage people when they are down.
What are some things that you love about yourself? What are things that inspire you?
