Happy New Year!
Being that we are into the third week of January I think it is safe to assume that we can stop telling people "Happy New Year", right? Before a New Year we tend to think about what we want to work on; goals, dreams, what we are looking forward too and so much more. It can also be the a time to reflect on the current year, lessons, achievements, and regrets. Nevertheless it is a New Year so.....Happy New Year (I had to say it one more time)!
One of the ways you know it's a New Year is when you hear and see people starting fitness goals! Some people complain about the gym being overcrowded, waiting for machines, and more. I personally love it, I enjoy seeing new people taking the initiative to make their fitness goals a priority. Whether they stay consistent, fall of track, or you see them every time you workout; their life routine is not your concern. Give them a smile, if you see someone who needs assistance assist, don't walk away and make fun of them because you're still learning to.
I have been thinking about defining moments lately.....how every interaction we have shapes our attitude and day; big or small. So when I see the gym crowded or new women in the locker room or have to wait for a machine, whatever it maybe; I don't get upset, I don't think negative, and I don't think my entire life is going to fall apart. I just smile at the new faces, give people genuine compliments, try out different machines, workouts, and adjust my routine if need be.
Even if it's after I have a long day, the world maybe getting on my nerves, my friends maybe acting weird, whatever the case maybe; all interactions are defining moments.
When you enter a situation and it does not look like what you imagined, how will you define that moment? When you have just one more thing on your list that you are about to embark on and you want to just sleep, how will you define that moment?
Defining moments make up your entire life they are small pieces to an amazing puzzle; define each moment with everything you have.
