Even if You Fail it’s a Win as You Can Learn – Day 125

After going on my usual morning run, I had a nice, long session of mindfulness and meditation. I’ve been pretty busy lately, and I felt like I needed some time to just reflect on life and be present. After the past couple of days I’ve had, I decided that I needed to get back into my mental preparation. I’ve dealt with so many different challenges that not much will surprise me now. I even anticipate things going wildly wrong in advance to prepare myself for what each day might bring. This has become a vital part of my mindfulness practice.

I had a chance to go out to lunch with some friends for the first time in a while, and it was a really great time. I’d told them bits and pieces about my new lifestyle the past few months, but after sitting down in person they really got a chance to pick my brains. They asked me in detail what exactly I was doing to better myself, about my general attitude and philosophy, and the various ways that the lifestyle was paying off.  I tried to be as helpful and transparent as possible with my responses; all of this  has drastically transformed my life for the better, but it hasn’t always been smooth sailing. It was definitely nice to be able to share my journey with new people, but it was even better to potentially inspire my friends to make a change in their own lives.

Tonight’s workout went pretty well, and I even managed to sneak in some extra cardio towards the end of my session. One thing I have been noticing, though, is that my calves have been sore since I started running every morning. I want to keep my current routine, so I’ll probably have to ease into the running intensity until my body is able to adapt. It does seem tempting to try and tough through this sort of pain, but taking it easy will allow me to keep doing what I’m doing for longer. We’ve always got to remember that rest is just as important as hard work.

I’m happy with how well things went today. In particular, it was really nice to be able to continue to share my journey on a personal basis (a major reason why I’m writing this blog). I’m obviously doing this to better myself, but I feel that it’s also to benefit my larger community.
