Sometimes it is difficult for me to leave my house. I love being at home and the comfort it provides me. At the same time, I know that being outside makes me happy. I just seem to forget that when I am at home, haha!
I used to feel the same way about exercising: experiencing a lot of resistance to exercise, but then feeling so good while doing it or especially afterward! Now, I no longer have that resistance when I exercise. I'm still trying to figure out what changed!
Yesterday was a day filled with such resistance to leaving my house. I wanted to pass by Sungyata, and then we would go eat fufu afterward, but the motivation just wasn't there. I kept finding excuses in my head to stay at home. Luckily, I wasn't alone, and my partner was able to convince me to go.
And then, the weirdest thing happened... and honestly, it always happens the same way: I step out of my door, I take in some fresh air and I feel happy. I literally forget about the resistance I felt just a few seconds before.
It. is. that. simple.
Just one tiny step... can make the difference.
One action, one first step...
And then being in the car, seeing the mountains, meeting people... what a joy!
It ended up being a beautiful Sunday. I hope you had a beautiful weekend too. And if not, tomorrow is another day :-)
