Motivational Monday

One Step At A Time

I need to remember this. Today and every minute of the days going forward. Yes. Because this morning I did exactly what I said I wasn’t going to do when my classes started up again. And stressed myself the F out worrying about how I will get through the next six weeks of statistics. Yes. I jumped right on the self-doubt bandwagon. And I almost stayed on that self-destruction ride, but then I remembered my run on Saturday. A personal best since my injury. But I didn’t get that personal best without a few tears. A little feeling defeated. A lot of taking one step at a time. And mostly trusting that if I showed up. And I kept showing up. I would come to a place where I could put my injury completely behind me. And now here I am. Well, I am almost to the putting my injury completely behind me part. So I have no idea how I will get through the next six weeks of statistics. Or for that matter, any other challenge life happens to throw my way. No. But I do know if I continue to remind myself to take things one step at a time. One assignment at a time. Six weeks from now, I will be able to say I am done with statistics and my injury is completely behind me.  And yes. I don’t expect either to be easy. But just remember, the easy stuff in life isn’t what true bosses are made of.

Did you have a good weekend?

What is your favorite thing about today so far?

Did you find a heart yet?

Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!

    • Its so true and an awful habit of mine I am working on to change. I am so happy you are running again! I know how it feels to have running taken away and the unknown of maybe never running again. I too have been focusing just being able to run, the PB was a nice bonus or sign of real progress rather. 🙂 Hope your Monday is going good! 🙂


  1. Great post! I tend to overwhelm myself with all the to-dos and what ifs when I have something big on the horizon. Give me 1 life change and I’ll find 50 things to stress about relating to it…what fun.


  2. 🙂
    Well, I had a great time volunteering for the race I wanted to run . . . and LOVED IT! 🙂 We had a phenomenal time in San Antonio–I’ll write more about it tomorrow afternoon, but in the meantime, suffice it to say my hubby and I went on a nature hike right behind his former bro-in-law’s house and I saw hearts EVERYWHERE–including the top of a small tree stump, a perfect heart. . . NO CAMERA! UGH! I guess I’ll just have to go back.

    In the meantime, enjoy running. I miss it. And I cannot believe I just said that. :-0


  3. Way to go on your personal best, even though I know it goes beyond the time and the distance! You show your personal best every time you get back up after being knocked down and come back from a setback even better than every, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. You are talking the talk and walking the walk like a real Boss, one step at a time and one day at a time!


  4. One day at a time is my favorite philosophy. You will get through that statistics class. Statistics is not rocket science, although some of it seems very convoluted 😉 When I was quite young, I barely managed to pass my stats courses at community college by the skin of my teeth, yet (many years later) when I embarked on a doctoral degree, I took a bunch of stats courses and got As and Bs in them. I can’t tell you how that happened; only that I had a desire to learn, to understand. For me, learning statistics was like learning a foreign language. It also made it more fun 😉 You’ll do fine because you think like a boss 🙂


    • That is so good to know and a great way to look at stats! I too struggled in my lower division classes, hopefully things will go more smoothly this time around, just thinking about stats makes me anxious and I hope to overcome that as well! 🙂
