Pushing Through Difficulty | Between the Headphones 8
I had a difficult day yesterday.
I felt unmotivated from the moment I opened my eyes.
It took everything in me to roll out of bed and eat breakfast then get my butt to the gym.
While I was eating my breakfast, I stared at my to-do lists and admittedly, felt paralyzed.
So many things to cross off.
Not just tasks that take 30 minutes, either.
Some days are harder than others.
Blame the dark clouds that rolled through about noon-ish or the winds whipping through the city.
Maybe I didn’t sleep enough or well enough last night.
I don’t know.
I just know that yesterday was hard.
So, I took it one step at time.
I got to the gym.
I ate and got myself to the meeting I had scheduled at 1pm.
I got home and did all the absolute must-do’s.
I knocked off the few things on my list that absolutely had to get done.
Before I knew it, I was cruising and ready to write my blog for the week.
Energized and the morning’s struggle was long gone.
Some days are going to be more difficult than others.
Some days I work 12 hours.
Some days I work 5.
I just know that I have promised myself to get better every single day and when difficult days like this roll around, I refuse to allow them to snowball into two days and then into a week, possibly even more.
I refuse to allow that paralyzed feeling to win.
I am curious to see what happens if I keep pushing through.
I don’t know what the future holds for me when it comes to DJing and #DareToBe because this is a new journey for me. But, I do know that I'm determined to see what it has in store for me.
I hope that on the most difficult of days you are able to get your feet on the floor, eat breakfast, cross off the must-do’s, and find a way to get better.
I did it and believe you can, too.
