What you do today is completely up to you. Always has been. Always will be.
Yes, everyone has obligations that must be attended to. Yes, there are things that come up unexpectedly – and sometimes these events are tragic.
Yes, it’s difficult. Yes, it’s overwhelming. Yes, it’s confusing, frustrating, painful and on and on.
Thank you for listening. You may have thought this was written for you. Well, sort of. Mostly though, I write to myself. So, please don’t take offense to the tone.
If we can’t talk honestly and openly with ourselves, we probably can’t with anyone else either. And even more than Halloween, that scares the heck out of me.
Are you planning to exercise today?
If you are, great.
If you’re not, why the heck not?
Just do it.
Did you? Great if you did. If you had a planned rest day, also great.
But if you didn’t do either in a purposeful way, you get another chance today.
Here are a couple tips, the most critical things, I’ve found to keep a positive momentum:
- Have a goal, or purpose, bigger than yourself
- Find the time of day that works best
- Add it to your calendar (no afterthoughts)
- Find an easy way to keep track of your progress
- Forgive yourself if you miss a day, but don’t make it a habit
- Have fun, stay healthy (injuries demotivate)
- Carpe diem

Setting goals, achieving goals and sustaining those goals. Modifying or changing our lifestyles to a more desirable, healthier state.
Motivation is the key. But many people have false notions about motivation, inspiration and even excitement.
