Never think you can’t do something. You can do anything.
You are you.
I did a triathlon in June. This may not be a big thing for some, but it marks a turning point for me.
Having been a spectator and team-participant for years, I never had the will power before to contemplate doing anything like this myself.
Then, in 2012, when yucky things happened, some things got put into perspective, and I made a promise to myself to do the whole tri by myself.
When it came to sign up, I remembered the phrase “if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got”
I was never going to be a cyclist, a swimmer, or a better runner, if I didn’t try. So I did. I didn’t manage to train as much as I had hoped (that “life” thing kinda got in the way somewhat!) but I did what I could and managed it.
In fact I quite enjoyed it (and might even do it again next year!)
So, little men of mine, when you read this in years to come, if there’s something you want to do but think you can’t – please remember that you can change habits of a lifetime, and the only person stopping you from making that change is you.
Be active. Be happy. Have fun.
I love you x
