This summer has been very relaxing (when I’m not working or “running around”) . I’ve been getting some much needed sleep and taking time to rest. That has all been great but with that has come many days I have not worked out and followed my normal morning routine. Some days that sits well with me and other days I feel very guilty! I’ve also noticed on the days I don’t pray, read the Bible, meditate and work out (my usual morning routine) that I don’t feel my best. So, I had to ask myself, is it worth going through the day feeling guilty and “off of my game”? The answer is NO!! It is a good thing to take some time off once in a while but for me, it causes me more stress than it’s worth, when a break goes on for too long. Cultivating my mind, body and spirit has become a habit and I have to maintain that in order to be at my best! If you want to be successful in life, you have to be willing to do things that most people aren’t willing to do daily. Success is a result of a daily pursuit of goals put together for weeks, years, decades in a row. If you want to lose weight and be fit, you have to eat right daily and stay active. If you want to grow spiritually, you have to study and work on your personal growth consistently. Sticking to my daily routine is imperative if I want to be my best self! It is very true that once you form a habit it becomes part of you. It’s important to remember that goes for good and bad habits. If you let bad habits go on for too long they will become part of you too. So, I’m going to stick with the good habits!
