I don’t post much about fitness. Not because it’s not important to me. In fact, #fitness has been a #priority a good portion of my adult life. But if I’m being completely honest, taking care of myself since the #baby has been born has been much more #challenging than I anticipated. I was in my 20’s when I had the boys, and no matter how fit one is, it’s much harder to bounce back from sleepless nights at 42 than at 22. #fact 🙌🏻 That said, I need fitness to be a priority now more than ever. I NEED to feel #strong both mentally and physically. And any hardworking #mama will tell you.... it ain’t easy. It really isn’t. But a few days ago, I had one hard truth hit me square in the face... I’ve always tried to view obstacles as opportunities, but lately, I’ve been viewing having a baby as an excuse/obstacle not to prioritize fitness. No time. Too tired. Too busy. Too early. Too late. But the reality is I was being too lazy. Too complacent. And I have suffered the consequences of low energy, negative mindset, and simply knowing I’m not making my mental and physical #health a priority. More than anything, what kind of example am I being for my #daughter who is listening to every word that I say and watching everything I do? I felt so small that I’ve used her an my #excuse rather than viewing her as my motivation. It’s still not easy. It takes extra time. But knowing I’m investing in my health while including Zoë Kate feels amazing. One more load of laundry may not make it out of the dryer. One less dish may not find its way into the dishwasher. But I have a feeling, in the grand scheme, dishes and laundry will not be the things I’ll look back on in regret. I recently saw a great #quote that read, “You can have anything but not everything.” And I realized I need to choose my anything wisely.
Uh hummm... So, the #internet should definitely apply to #freespeech . I am a #poet . You Know it!💯
Just #James . No Artificial Flavors or Labels. ... Like 👇 "CHRISTIAN EXTREMIST" is the New #liberal term. The Media is Now pushing this Label. Just because someone says they are "Christian" does not mean anything.
1. How can a People, (Christians) whose whole story, is of Persecution, since the #genesis .
#Fact :John the Baptist was Beheaded and Many Others.
Sooo, if I am Extreme, it is in my Immense Respect for #Life and the #Love for My Creator.
HE has carried Me through the "Valley of the Shadow of Death". Christ could have annihilated his adversaries. Instead, he suffered.
