Are you hanging out & planning your next move?

Are you hanging out & planning your next move? Have you been stuck for a while and waiting for something new to come along?  Stop waiting!  It's OK to find a resting spot for a minute, but don't make it your zip code, lol.    It seems sometimes we get stuck waiting for that 'perfect moment', a 'sign', or a miracle.  Make your own luck - bring your skill set to the table and get into action. Even if you're unsure of the next move, move. The momentum of something will catch on.  Your thoughts will also become clearer as you change your energy with moving in a different direction.  You will serve as your own catalyst, cheering section and motivator all in one......... so get going!...

Exercise at 40+

Exercise at 40+ Now that I'm in my 40s, I'm finding I don't have to 'kill it' every time I work out, lol.  I'm glad I went all out in my late 20s/early 30s (pre injuries) - I really gained a great foundation and muscle memory.  I had the ambition, energy and time to do it, and it served me well.  Now when I lift, I still train with intensity and have some great lifting sessions, but it doesn't have to be 4 days a week.  I suppose what's really changed is intention and energy.

Having a distorted reality can come from several places.  We may be caught in a certain 'story', we may have lost our voice somewhere along the way, we may have adopted someone else's perspective, we may have given up.  It all boils down to truth. Are you living the life you want now?  If not, what are you going to do about it?  It is a challenge to be in the 'in between' space, no doubt.  You know the place where you're challenged by something from the past and haven't moved into your now.  Happens all the time.  You may be wondering, 'how did I get here'.  Don't ponder it too long,...
