Emotion: Rarin' to go
When I began this journey, I think I very much looked at it like a literal battle, a fight to the finish where I would wage war with my inner demons and work to endure through a lifetime of day-to-day skirmishes, scrapes and struggles.
One of the most helpful aspects of blogging is that it really does force you to gaze deep within yourself as you reason through the why's and wherefore’s of this business. Simply put, it’s difficult to write regularly about your journey without learning something meaningful about yourself along the way.
And it occurred to me that this odyssey we’re on isn't a fight at all. It’s not about thrashing with temptation day in and out. Not about storming the gates or marshaling the resources.
This is about the transformation of our bodies, spurred by the fundamental transformation of how we think, how we live, who we are.
This is about accepting responsibility for our choices and refusing to sit on the sidelines while those around us enjoy their lives.
Just because we’ve spent far too long in dark places doesn’t mean we don’t deserve our day in the sun.
This is your opportunity to make radical, positive change in your life and yourself, and I encourage you to join me in embracing the challenge.
This isn't a combat detail.
It's a rescue mission.
