Get comfortable being uncomfortable
I try to take small lessons from everyday activities. Last night was pretty rough for me. I couldn’t sleep all night. Got up after three hours of sleep, took a bath and watched the rest of West Wing on Netflix. I couldn’t eat. And finally around the time I wanted to leave for my bike ride to work, I was overcome with exhaustion and ended up going back to bed for an hour.
Last night I kept my post short because all I wanted was to go to bed. Although once I was there, all I could do was toss and turn for a couple hours.
But one of the reasons I turned this into a lesson was because today I ran Family Farm completely and totally by myself. No volunteers. No assistance. No second person. And I’m actually proud of the job I did. I was cranky and exhausted, but I was able to put all that aside and rock out the Island of Ridiculous on my own.
And while it’s been a while since I’ve pushed myself during a workout in that same capacity, I know I am capable of doing it. Because if I can make today run smoothly after my night, then pushing myself to my limits will be no issue!
And now I’m going to try to get a full nights sleep.
