Fall Means Time for Reflection

Reflection in the Fall

It’s fall like out there –crisp and colder and that makes for a tougher wake up!

I always find this time of year is really good for reflection. It’s the last part of the year and you have lots of data to look at from the months past to see how you are doing.

  • Are you doing what you want to do?
  • Is what you are doing making you happy?
  • Do you have a lot of joy in your life?
  • Are you taking care of you – body and mind?
  • Are you being a good role model for your kids?
  • Are you the YOU you envision?

It’s never too late to make changes in your life and not have your every move dictated by fear. I talk a lot about being stuck in the fear loop.  The reason I talk about it often is because I am constantly doing a gut check when I find myself unable to make a decision or not confident in the decisions I make. My internal dialogue always asks: what are my intentions? and is fear leading me?

I dont want to be that person who purposely chooses actions that are designed to hurt others or acts out of fear. Both of those paths usually don’t lead anywhere good and end up hurting people unnecessarily. Usually there is a problem with me and my own feelings when I do begin to go down a path that isn’t healthy.  It never has to do with someone else at the heart of it.  Someone may have triggered it by their own actions but I am in control of how I react and process it all. I can choose to come from a place of help and good intentions –and when you do that, you rarely can go wrong.

Ok enough of the deep thoughts – Today was a strength day: Front Squats.

I probably should have gone a bit heavier for that last one now that I am done with it. Gotta keep challenging myself and not take the easy road.
