What if you are motivated, not by should, but by something else?

July 6, 2017
Fresh thoughts from Lady Lisa:

Sometimes I construct barriers to my progress.  “I should workout”, while true, is not very motivating.  What motivates me is how accomplished I feel after showing up to workout, and how satisfied I feel when I push myself through discomfort and struggle, and how fun it is to do this with a bunch of folks, and the fact that it is self-care, and it works better on the ptsd and depression than anything else.  And it makes me happy.  And I think all of you are smart,  sweet and lovable and supportive. These are all great motivators, and they are all wrapped up in “should”, and so the way I connect to those nourishing things is by asking myself:

What if you are motivated, not by should, but by something else?

What is that something else for you?

How ’bout next time we meet at the box, you tell me, and I’ll tell you?

Today will be different.  I like that.
