What up World! The funniest thing happened to me last week. I flew off of a treadmill in the gym! Ha! It was sort of my fault however! See I was doing the most on the treadmill. I’m talking about walking sideways, (left and right), along with walking backwards. I thought I was the bomb.com! But guess what, I lost my focus! Each morning in the gym I like to either listen to positive sermons, gospel music, or motivational videos. This day in particular I chose to listen to a few motivational videos. So here I am, walking backwards on the treadmill with my motivational video playing strong. I was feeling like I could conquer the world or better tighten these knees of mine (lol). All of sudden, my motivational video stops playing! It was synonymous with a DJ’s record stopping during the bomb song! So what did I do? I looked down to see why my video stopped playing and well I went flying off the treadmill! I had to laugh to myself! I mean it was my fault! I lost my focus! There are countless times in my life when I have lost my focus. This was from moments of wasted time, not feeding my soul with positivity, and on to times where I didn’t believe in myself. We all have moments when we lose our focus. But the key I am learning is to determine what is taking your focus away. Is this something that will add to your life? Is this something that will make you a better you? I often tell myself this when I feel like I am falling off because it helps me to stand up and get back on track. This lenten season I am determined to get my life back on track. We all go in strong when we are ready for change. My goal however is to finish strong. I want each day to be purposeful in someway. I want to be who I was created to be and finish what I was created to finish in this lifetime. But I know it all starts with me! So join me in making our days purposeful. It’s okay to lose your focus, but stand up and get back on track! Your life is a gift!
Side note: I got back on the treadmill and finished strong with my motivational video playing full blast!
