I ran yesterday. My legs felt sluggish, heavy, and clunky. Lungs felt compressed. It was a slog-fest.
Yet my time was faster.
See? Perceived effort isn’t always accurate. Whatever it is that feels like a slog to you now, keep going. Yes, you might want to quit or take another break or wait until the perfect moment. Oh, the tricks the brain plays on us.
One step forward at a time. One conversation, intention, connection, dare, insight, neuron, stretch, breath, smile, risk at a time.
You’re closer than you think.
