Endure it WELL
One thing that has really and truly helped me during the tough times lately (not just the loss of my brother, but also bad days with my children, grumpy days, not getting enough sleep, or a grouchy husband) is exercise. I love my 30 minutes of me time. I've started exercising more because of how great I feel when I'm done. I really want to get into running again, and possibly do a half marathon one day. I can't believe I am posting this, because I feel like now I'll have to actually do it, and people will hold me accountable. I have to repeat, POSSIBLY! I MIGHT, MAYBE, ONE DAY do a half marathon. I haven't committed to that yet. ;)
But back to enduring, there is so much we have to endure. We can choose to grumble, I have grumbled a lot in my life! We can choose to be negative, and bring others down in the process-because negativity is contagious. Or we can be positive and uplift others. We can smile and make the most of it. It's not an easy task to be positive all the time. It's possible though. This is my goal. To not just inspire others to get healthy and active, but to be positive and uplift others. To help them see that we can CHOOSE to be happy, and endure the hard times WELL.
