If you really think about it nothing worth having comes without hard work, dedication and if you are anything like me, tears and more than the occasional f-bomb. You see, having the results we want is about in essence, creating the results we want. We have to be willing to ask the tough questions and look like a complete fool. We have to be willing to open our hearts, put ourselves out there and speak our truth. We have to be willing to go out there and brave the hills, push through the pain and ignore the excuses we make for ourselves that make it feasible for us to give up. We have to be willing to not allow ourselves to fall victim to the moments when it really f-ing hurts to take another step. When we leave our comfort zone. When we hit a wall. And when we have a series of “bad runs”. Those are the moments that can be miserable. Whoever said sweating was sexy anyways?! Okay maybe me at some point, but that was after one hellva run, a hot shower and a glass of wine. The point is, in the moments when we want to give up; it’s our choice to decide. But to really get what we want. What is worth having. We have to be willing to get it done, without being told what to do. Like bosses. Without letting our worst enemy, with his or her ever so appealing excuses, convince us that giving up, is worth more than what we want.
Not giving up means telling ourselves the truth. And we can make the truth as complicated as we want. We have to own the truth like a boss. We have to fall in love with the truth like a boss. That doesn’t mean we like everything about ourselves. No, it means we are honest with ourselves. It means we are honest about our weaknesses. And honest with ourselves why we eat the way we do. Or eat the way we shouldn’t. Why we allow negativity to cloud our thoughts and make us sad. Or rely on a number on a scale to define our worth. Why we allow someone else to treat us poorly. And we can make the truth as complicated as we want. We can argue with it. I can argue with you about it. You can argue with me about it. We can argue with ourselves about it. But here’s the thing. Arguing with the truth, won’t change the truth. It won’t change my truth. Nor will it change your truth.
Because our truth is our reality. And reality will be reality. The sky will still be blue. And the color red will still be the color red. Don’t you see? We can’t go about making big. Significant. Momentous. Changes in our lives if we don’t tell ourselves the truth. Are you with me? Not giving up, is knowing that what we want for ourselves and why, is worth so much more. It’s time to start telling ourselves the truth. Every day. All day if we have to. So we can unleash our inner bosses and get to wherever it is we want to go. See, feel and get to things we dream of. Our goals. Our authentic selves. Our life with true happiness. Our love for ourselves. Like bosses.
Have you ever given up on something? Have you ever given up on yourself?
Are you looking forward to the weekend?
Have you found a heart yet? I just received a few more in the past couple days, I am seriously just plain giddy about it.
I have been catching up on my reading here on WordPress and if I haven’t gotten to your blog yet, I will soon!
Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!
