From the First Time...


From the first time you became motivated…

 Do you remember? That first inspiration you’ve ever had? The one stunt or act of strength by your idol that moved your spirits and instantly brought you to your feet and out the front door to achieve the same.

 

From the first time you fell in love…

 Whether it be with another person, an idea, a sport, or hobby. The indescribable feeling in that very moment, where nothing else seems to be relevant. Time stands still.

 

From the first time you had a major failure…

And rather than dismay, you felt angry. Angry at yourself. You knew you could have done better and from that day forward, swore to execute to the best of your ability. To be better, not sorry.

 

From the first time you “got there”…

 The hard work and time you had patiently put it. It all paid off, the moment of pure serenity internally.

 

 My point is that we’ve all had “from the first time” moments. The only problem is the ability to remember and carry those feelings with us, whether it be to find peace in moments of chaos or to simply remember why you started.

 

Remember the ”first times”, for the sake of your happiness, One Day at a Time.
