Put Your Blinders On
As I took a walk this morning, a thought came to mind. With my huge headphones on, like two big buns on my ears. They were like blinders, and as the music played, it kept me going straight. I focused on the task at hand. Just like a horse in a race, with blinders, it can only see straight ahead.
Soon I noticed that I was moving at a faster pace and the finish point didn’t seem that long.
“I’m going to finish this mile in no time.”
I said to myself.
I wonder why I can’t mentally get to this point everyday though, it’s like I shut down. But I have to find that drive again, if I want change and want to feel and see change in my body. I did it once, so I know it’s possible, but, I have to stop having buts and just keep in my mind all the reasons why I need to just do it.
I want to finish this race and I want to finish strong.
Lord you woke me up this morning, I’m still here, I know I need to do better, I need to do more. I will and I am.
