"Never gonna see the day that I don't have the upper hand." - Timbaland featuring Nelly Furtado & Justin Timberlake, Give It To Me
Prompt 13: Best Gift
What was the best gift you gave yourself this year? Did you buy big, fluffy towels? Did you have a massage on a day when you really needed it? Did you forgive someone and give yourself the freedom from that grudge?
I might not agree with this on Tuesdays and Thursdays around 8:45 in the morning when I am trying to pick myself up off the mats or struggling to climb up the stairs of my gym but spending the money (mad cheddar) on personal training was probably the best gift I gave to myself this year.
To know I'm, physically, the strongest I've ever been in my life is an amazing feeling. There are things I do at the gym now that I couldn't have even imagined 4 months ago. I see it when I look in the mirror. I feel it when I take on a physical challenge out in the real world and know i can accomplish it.
It takes discipline to make it to training on those days. I take the bus there (or walk sometimes). I have to get up early. This week, I'm facing the elements and the cold. And I'm heading there to get my ass kicked.
And I love it.
