Work Hard for the Results You Want – Day 144

Max Ignatius Atlas Year Of Change Day 144

Mandatory New Think Warning Reg: FO99

I woke up this morning with an awful lot to look forward to, and the best part is that I didn’t have anything spectacular planned for today! In fact, today was going to be as typical as ever in terms of my daily schedule, but I’ve been learning how to really appreciate the various activities you engage in throughout the day. I love going on runs, I love finishing my chores, and I definitely love preparing and eating my meals with care. And honestly, if you find that you don’t have anything to look forward to during your day, then all you have to do is make something that is. Life is simply more fulfilling when you go out of your way to reward yourself.

I haven’t really treated myself to anything in a while, and I have enjoyed a string of successes lately, so I decided to buy myself a box of chocolates after I got off work. In the past, I would have just scarfed them down until I was fully satisfied (which would often require multiple boxes), but now I decide how many pieces I’m going to eat in advance. This is a strategy I’ve been using with snacks for a while; it seems like you’re not getting enough at first, but you’ll learn to adapt to the smaller portions soon enough. This just goes to show that you can easily be satisfied with less than what you’re used to.

Also, if I recall correctly, I recently talked about “not having it” sometimes when I work out. Well, today was the complete opposite of that! I was lifting heavy and going hard while barely even breaking a sweat. I wish that I could know why my energy levels seem to differ so drastically from workout to workout, but I guess it’s just another mystery of the human body. All I know is that I’d better take advantage of these days when they come!

Quote of the Day

“Lost time is never found again.” – Benjamin Franklin


I’m still taking things one day at a time, and it’s been working out extremely well for me as of late. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so in control and capable at any other point in my life, so I can only imagine how things are going to improve moving forward.
