I’m no stranger to Pain. To Sacrifice. To Delayed Gratification.
I know pain is not the same as suffering. With suffering, whether you think you are, or you’re not, you’re right.
My pain has purpose. I know that a sore body today is a stronger one tomorrow.
Sacrifice also has purpose. A sacrifice is something I am willing to do today for a greater good so that I may create and live a better tomorrow without compromise. Sacrifice is only passing, regret is permanent.
For this I am willing to delay gratification because I know that anything worth having is worth working for, and anything worth working for is worth waiting for. However, I also take gratification in knowing that it’s not all about the end result…some of the greatest rewards are found in the Becoming, the process of striving to be a better version of myself, what I must do to get there, all that the experience teaches me and brings out in me.
My desire to change is far greater than any inconveniences or challenges that are part of the process. Real strength flows from being the best you you can be!
This is not just about creating a healthier body. This is about Life.
Life is getting up an hour early to live an hour more. It’s doing something today that helps make you better than the person you were the day before. I am better than yesterday, but not as good as I will be tomorrow.
This is about Living my Best Life in my Healthiest Body and inspiring others to do so along the way.
Thank-you, my Future Self, for being my inspiration!
