That all day adventure was exhausting! My quads were sore for days. I could barely lift my arms for two days. I'm serious! But... I can tell you this. I'm already eagerly anticipating my next big challenge!
What I'm learning is that sitting in front of a computer, television, or with my head down into my cell phone is not the way to live!
Remember that Toyota commercial?
Even when I was on vacations before, we would visit people and sit around, hang out at a beach or pool....shop...and eat. Does that sound like your vacation? Many people feel that they work so hard all the time that when they go on vacation, they just want to lay around and do nothing! Now, don't get me wrong. I feel that way, too. In fact, I found a hammock at the hotel we were staying in and ya better believe I layed in it for a while.
Still, I insisted we try a challenging adventure this trip and can I just tell you, it is ALL that I can really talk about when I tell others about our vacation!
"Without challenge, there can be no growth".
I grew that day. I realized that if I set my mind to something, if I faced a fear, a challenge, and I made it through, I grew as a person. I gained more confidence and more wonderful memories, and so did my family.
My point is this: Find something you fear, or something you think you can't possibly achieve, whether personally, or professionally and go for it! Take the challenge. You will grow! This kind of growth is much better than simply growing wider behinds because you're on the couch, or computer all day.
And besides, if you hurt, I know a really great massage therapist...;)
Yup, that's me!
Until next time, see ya on the flip side!
