These. Three. Fucking. Weeks. Off.
I fractured two toes, sprained my ankle, and messed up my knee (again) while also being sick. Could barely walk and wear shoes but I still worked nonstop.
However, I did take the entire time off from the gym so I could somewhat heal. I can occassionally overpower my stubbornness believe it or not.
One toe is still fractured and my knee is still busted so I have to pause my running for awhile longer. I've felt extremely defeated over my loss of strength, endurance, and overall lousy health choices the past few weeks.
Mind has been thrown for a loop as well, but I've learned to bounce back from mental and emotional strains much faster. I've attuned to protecting my spirit because I refuse to lose myself in other people's drama and issues anymore. So without a doubt, low-quality/half-ass/immature/negative people and situations have ZERO place in my life.
A lion does not concern itself with the opinions or dealings of sheep. Rise above the noise and nonsense that desperately tries to bring your spirit down. You are bigger than the small minded individuals that relish over people's misery and eagerly await you to stoop to their level of pettiness. To find entertainment and thrill off of another person's weakness and demons is nothing short of crooked and shameful. Don't allow yourself an association with such poisonous energy. Have a sense of self-awareness and evaluate your intent and impact on those around you; be a leader, a healer, and a lover. Carry yourself the way you deserve and in the way the world will be nourished by your existence. There is enough toxicity around us already.
I think. I act. I learn. I grow. Life is meant to be challenging, but it will either strengthen or weaken you and that is entirely your choice. My life has had a few redirections lately, but I've grown to expect change embrace it all. Take care of your body and soul, you are only given one.
