I often let irrational fears dictate my life.
THAT STOPS NOW!
I often have to remind myself its ok to not be perfect
it is ok to fail sometimes
is that what i am afraid of?
I have strived my whole life to be the best at everything
competition runs thick in blood.
Yet sometimes i shy away from doing things
because i know that apart of me cant come in second
lately i have been struggling with my knee and running.
I normally am nervous about pt tests because i always want to get over
which is perfect
and this is the one event in my life
i get to go over perfection
((my last test was 345<-- better believe i make sure people know that #))
but this test was going to be different
i knew i could not run fast enough
without my knee completely falling apart on me
so i said to myself
"Dont let the fear of not being perfect stop you from being proud of your best"
of course i caught myself making up a million excuses
of why i couldnt shouldnt and wouldnt take this pt test
i also had a HORRIBLE migraine the night before
and right before the run
because i knew thats the only thing i had to be afraid of
but i went out there and
i finally was able to run
without the pressure of achieving perfection
DAILY LESSON: I cant let fear get to me...I can do anything
&& So can you :)
I feel liberated. Not that i wont always strive to do better but sometimes its nice to take the pressure off of ourselves.
So i want to go out and try everything
