Acknowledging and Appreciating Yourself for Committing to What YOU Love, Even if it is different than someone else
This morning I woke up extra early with excitement in my body. I didn’t need to be up for another 2.5 hours but I was just happy to get the day going!
I had check ins with my coach this morning then went off to fasted cardio before my working begins from clients, to calls, to my client check ins It was nice to do my cardio and relax with my breakfast outside 🙂.
But as I was driving home I saw this older woman, she looked so amazing, so put together.
Her hair was done, she had a super cute outfit on, she looked like a country rockstar and I was admiring her for being so put together and I caught myself wondering just HOW she managed to do that before 6:30am?!
And part of me wished i would do something like that. I was in my head wondering what that would require to wake up, get ready to that level, and still show up wherever she was going on time.
Then I took a step back and remembered who I am. Even though I LOVE a cute outfit, I don’t even like styling my hair let alone brushing it and I function much better in workout clothing or pajamas.
I also realized, I wake up every morning, go to the gym first thing, and run my business while being a full time student.
Why would I be so quick to beat myself up for not being put together like this woman? I mean, that’s not even who I am so why would I try to put that pressure on myself, for what?
I applaud her for investing her time and energy into what more than likely makes her feel great & I also applaud myself for doing the same thing.
Plus, my definition of put together is already what i do daily! We can all be interested in different things & therefore what we LOVE committing to on a daily basis comes w/ more ease because we love it!
And some things, like getting ready for a day lookin put together, or going to the gym may take one person MORE effort than another or might LOOK different than another...but it doesn’t make you or them any worse or better.
Acknowledge and appreciate yourself for doing the things you love and which make you feel good, then, when the time comes to do other things that maybe aren’t as exciting, find the joy & give it your all anyways bc a job worth doing, is worth doing right!
