Thoughts on Hustling, Biting off More than you can Chew, and Celebrating the Baby Steps

I’m interrupting hustling my new programs, to make some comments on the process.

What new programs??
So glad you asked!

Programs to transform your physique, your health, and your attitude to Kick-ass!

Aligned and Awesome. Be a Divine Badass. Be Strong, Be Beautiful.
Wow. Wowie. Wow. Wow. Did I bite off more than I could chew or what?

Yes. Yes I did. And I’m doing it.

The problem is not in the over reaching. The problem is that I am blinded to how far I’ve come.

What about you? Do you have trouble acknowledging what you’ve accomplished?
Maybe it’s time to stop, take a break (say what?), and celebrate what’s working in your life. Celebrate how far you’ve come. Applaud yourself for the hard lessons you’ve learned, for what you can do now that you couldn’t do five years, three years, or even one year ago.

Are you lifting more–even a little bit more? Celebrate it! Have you lost 5 lbs–instead of the 10 or 20 (or more) that you wanted to lose? Celebrate it! Are you more patient, more loving–even a little bit? Celebrate it! Have you taken even a few steps toward your dreams and desires? Celebrate it!

Here’s a post that I made on a personal blog over a year and a half ago regarding celebrating the baby steps. Maybe it will resonate with you.


The Work of Your Hands

I want you to stop beating yourself up. I don’t mean giving up, or saying, ” Well I should just be happy with the way things are.” I mean taking those baby steps toward your dreams, following your heart, and then patting yourself on the back for the courage it took to take those steps!

Look at the work of your hands. Go ahead–look at your hands–what have they done? Today? Every day? Over the years? What have you accomplished? Are you enriching people’s lives? (If you’re not, then find out What You Want To Be Doing on this planet and Who You Want To Be and start doing it!) But if you are taking the baby steps, then allow yourself to celebrate, breathe it in, own it, feel joyful about it.

The Work Of My Hands:

My growing garden. My two beautiful children. My bald-ass chickens. Nasturtiums and lavender blooming. 195lbs deadlifted. Kitchen cleaned. Laundry going. Blog post written. Helping people re-learn how to move well and get strong. Helping people feel better with massage. Working day-by-day on my relationships with my daughter, my son, my husband, myself.

Who can resist a chubby baby?

This is the work of my hands. I am accomplishing and moving toward my goals. I am making the world a better place.
My normal mode of thinking is to see only how far I have to go and how far I fall short of Who I Want To Be.
Yes, the world is Going to Hell in a Handbasket, and yep, you can ALWAYS do more. But have you taken the step? Have you moved forward? Have you done what you know to be right?
Don’t stop making progress on the path, but

Take a look at the work of your hands– and be proud.
